Happy New Year to everyone!

If you want to get your New Year off to a good start why not use the Follow the Star Reflections produced by the Church of England.  Click here to download the App or sign up for the emails.

If you have questions about the Christian faith, why not join us at our Alpha course? Starts Wednesday 11th January 2023 – scroll down for details.

With love and best wishes – Richard & all the team.

Do you have questions?

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

Aside from the red cabbage that was left forgotten in the saucepan, the Community Christmas Day Lunch at the Chapel Halls was a fantastic success. The event was for individuals and couples who would otherwise be spending Christmas alone, and a lovely Ukrainian family also joined us. With a raffle, viewing of the King’s Speech, and even a round of Twister, a wonderful day was had by all. Everyone went home with new friends made, a present from under the tree, and feeling rather replete!

We are raising money for the St Albans & District Foodbank – if you are able to donate please do so via this link

With thanks for the generous support of 18 local businesses, and many kind Wheathampstead residents.
