The Alpha Course

Is Christianity boring, irrelevant or even worse simply untrue? Do you owe it to yourself to explore these questions at least once in your life? Many of us have come to see something life-changing that we had previously dismissed all too easily. 

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different big question, from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us? and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a short talk and good conversation.


Alpha in Claverdon is starting this September on Wednesday evenings, 7:15 - 9:30pm in the Church Centre. Each evening starts with a meal together. Don’t be put off if you can’t make every evening. There is no such thing as a silly question and Alpha is always fun. 

The dates are:

13 Sep, 20 Sep; 27 Sep; 4 Oct; 11 Oct; 18 Oct; [not 25 Oct]; 1 Nov; 8 Nov; 15 Nov; 22 Nov; 28 Nov;

Daily Prayer

The Church of England has a long tradition of daily prayer which embraces the three key elements of thinking about God's goodness and giving thanks to Him, reading God's word in the Bible, and praying to ask for God's intervention in our lives and the lives of others.  The Anglican Common Worship Daily Prayer book provides a pattern of worship used throughout the country in cathedrals, parish churches, small groups, and by individuals. Go to the links below to join in this daily pattern of prayer.
