Alpha is a 10 week course for people who want to find out more about the Christian faith in an environment outside of church. Alpha is a great place to ask questions and explore your own views in a setting that’s open to all faiths, beliefs and opinions.

A typical Alpha evening consists of a meal, a talk from the front, and conversation in small groups to discuss your opinions.

We’re just finishing an Alpha course, but if you’re interested in joining our next one, contact Jim.

Naturally Supernatural

We will be attending this summer festival run by Soul Survivor – the aim: to be equipped to live spirit-led lives. It’s a five day festival at Stafford Showground – as it’s so close you can either camp with our group or sleep at home and commute each day.

Day tickets are available if you can’t make all of it.

To find out more and to book on, visit the website. Contact Ben about specific arrangements for our St Matthew’s group.
