The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, low key, friendly and fun.
There is a meal together at the beginning of every session which gives you an opportunity to get to know each other.
Listen, learn, discuss, discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.
Alpha consists of a series of talks and after each talk we divide into small groups for a time of discussion. Alpha is for EVERYBODY, especially:
Those wanting to investigate Christianity

New Christians
Newcomers to the Church
Those who want to brush up on basics

Watch this space for details of our next Alpha course!!

Spring Harvest is a Christian teaching holiday based at Butlins. We go because it’s fun to have a holiday together; because it’s a good way to get to know each other better; because the kids have such a good time with so much freedom; because the teaching is excellent with some of the best known international Christian speakers; and so that we can follow special teaching themes we wouldn’t normally have time to think about.
We go to walk on the beach, visit the pub, sleep, share meals and support our 5-a-side football team. Then we have a celebration fish and chip supper on the last evening.
There are crêches, various groups for children, teenage groups, student groups, and a wide choice for adults.




Classes for young people (12+) and adults are held to prepare for the annual confirmation service.
