An Alpha course ran on Wednesday evenings, 7-9 ;15pm, at St Augustine's , starting on 6th January, and ending 10th April..  The banner pictured above, on Amersham Hill, is used to raise awareness of the course among passers-by.  A second course began on 11th Sept, and will run until 20th Nov. 

The Spring course was very successful, by the goodness of God, with around thirty people attending regularly, nineteen of whom went on a very beautiful Cotswolds weekend-away,  where the Holy Spirit poured out blessings in a wonderful way.  The course just begun seeme to be attracting similar numbers,(though a proportion are "second-timers"), and this time  the away-weekend  will be at a more local retreat venue on 18th-20th October. If you are not coming regularly to our church, but wish to be kept informed of opportunities to book in for the next course, please send in your e-mail and name to  And for anyone thinking of taking part, please try to keep free the weekend dates ! It is an important and highly valuable part of the whole course. 

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, prisons,  homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.  for more information and taster clips, try
