WHAT is Alpha?

Alpha is an informative course, non-pressurised and fun.  It’s an opportunity to explore the meaning of life and to share thoughts.  The course is designed primarily for people who are interested in the Christian faith, but don’t go to church or haven’t been to church in a long time.  Even if you are familiar with church and Christian beliefs, but have unanswered questions, Alpha is a good opportunity to explore things further.

Each evening begins at 6.30 with a meal, followed by a short talk, followed by chat, finishing at 8.30.

Plymouth and Devonport Methodist Circuit invite you to attend the 'Encircled in Care' Course.


This resource is for those who care. It offers practical, up-to-date ideas and resources that can help pastoral carers to seek 'life in all its fullness' for the Body of Christ. All in the Church are involved in the health of that body. The quality of our caring is a sign of God's love and a witness to others that Christians have something special to offer a broken world that needs healing and reconciliation. www.methodist.org.uk

Plymouth Half Marathon

The Revd Simon Leigh shared the morning service on Sunday 17th April with the Revd Miranda Donne, minister at St. Andrews', Whitchurch, near Tavistock and Mr Michael Chequer from the BBC. The service was broadcast live from the Hoe before the start of the Plymouth Fun-Run. It was a cold but glorious morning and in spite of a few technical difficulties Miranda and Simon were able to share what 'running the race' meant for Christians (Hebrews 12:1) It was an enjoyable morning followed by hot coffee and bacon sandwiches.
