Do you have questions this Christmas?

Alpha is an opportunity to bring your questions and thoughts on life and faith to a group for discussion in the context of the Christian faith. It’s about encouraging a curious attitude rather than us providing answers. Each week we will begin with a meal, watch a short video and hopefully have a stimulating discussion.

Our Alpha course starts on Wednesday 11th January 2023 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at The Rectory. It runs weekly for seven weeks from 11th January to 22nd February.

To book your place, email or call the Church Office on 01582 834031

We are very sad to let you know that Rev’d Jill Hazelwood has died.  She died peacefully at home on 6th December.  There will be a small, private, family-only funeral service before Christmas.

Everyone is invited to celebrate Jill’s life and her remarkable contribution to our church, the school and our village at a Memorial Service for Jill on Wednesday 11th January at 2pm in St Helen’s Church.
