Family Hunger

Saturday 29th April, 10am at the Kings Centre

A family worship event tailored for families with kids aged 0-11. We had a great time at the last event, packed out with families, lots of pancakes, a rockin' youth band, stories, arts and crafts and lots of interactive and fun ways to pray together.

This is a free event, so just turn up at the Kings Centre, 10am, Saturday 29th April.

Les Isaac

Sunday 23rd April: 9 & 11am at Hampden Park, 10am at Centro

Les has been a minister for over 30 years and is currently an associate minister of the Christian Life Fellowship in Greenwich London. He is CEO of Ascension Trust which he founded 20 years ago “out of his concern to see churches involved in mission relevant to their own context and locality”. He was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list in 2012 for his work as Head of Ascension Trust. Les founded the Street Pastors Initiative 10 years ago in response to the growing concern for the problems of gun and knife crime, binge drinking, gang culture, loneliness, violence and fear within our communities. Les is the author of three books, 'Dreadlocks', 'Relevant Church' and 'Street Pastors'.

The Alpha Course

Our next Alpha Course begins Thursday 11th May 2017 at the Kings Centre

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low key, friendly and fun.

Our Alpha course is a series of nine evenings. At the beginning of each evening a free meal is served, giving you a chance to get to know others, relax and enjoy yourself.

Then there’s a talk, addressing key issues like ‘Who is Jesus?’ ‘What happens when we die?’ and ‘What about suffering?’

And then there’s an opportunity to discuss what you’ve heard, share your views, and ask anything you like. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

If you want to join the thousands of other people who have been on Alpha, visit our Alpha web page to find out more and sign up.
