Today we celebrated Sukkoth ‘Feast of Tabernacles’ with family, friends and visitors! Thank you Noel Moules for making this Jewish festival come alive! With passion and enthusiasm we danced for JOY and feasted together around the table.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view – wherever they are in the world.
What is Alpha?
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, which City Gate Church are running at The Dip from Monday 17th September – Monday 19th November, 8.00-9.45pm.
Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food/refreshments, a talk and good conversation.
First up there’s
Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together, building community and getting to know each other.. It’s no different at Alpha. Our sessions will start with tea, coffee, cake & biscuits!
The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around 20-30 minutes long, they will be given as a live talk. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?
Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Please get in touch if you would like any further information or let us know if you’re planning on coming, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there! 🙂

On Saturday 23rd June we had our first OASIS of the year! The sun shone, street diner gave a delicious array of food and people came together to enjoy face painting, drumming, movement, spiritual readings and community art!
Many people were impacted by Jesus and it was great to hear people asking what it was we were doing. One lady said she felt the peace of God when the chimes were playing and she’d never experienced anything quite like it before.
Our next OASIS is Saturday 8th September, 11am-4pm in Brighthelm Gardens.
We look forward to seeing you there!
