We run a host of courses covering a wide variety of subjects and topics, from those just starting out on their journey to know Jesus better, to those who really want to go deeper in their faith. Below are the regular courses we run, but if you have a great idea for another course we could run, then we'd love to hear from you!


Our mission is to reach out to everyone and see them become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. To help us in this we have developed a discipleship pathway – the gears. We encourage everyone who attends the church to go through “the gears” (discipleship pathway) as a way of helping everyone to grow to their full potential as followers of Jesus. Regardless of how long you have been on your spiritual journey we encourage you to sign up for the next gear if you have not completed the gears. Each gear course consists of 3 or 4 weekly sessions held in an evening or Sunday afternoon. These are run 2 or 3 times a year.

newcomers Course

We are running a course over 4 consecutive weeks, starting on Sunday 26th January at 4.30 - 6.30pm, with light tea provided. For those who are new to our church, this is a really engaging course that looks at getting to know each other, digging into the bible and reminding ourselves what we believe and what we're about as members of the church, where our church has grown from, where it sees God's leading and vision and how we can each become effective members of the church body by encouraging and equipping each other to grow deeper in our faith.

The course is very informal, conversational and fun, giving you the opportunity, if you wish, to be part of the church membership.
