What is happening in Cottam?

We are started our first Alpha Course in January 2020. This is part of our mission to invite the community of Cottam and beyond to get involved in something that helps answer some of life’s big questions

Is this it? Is there a God? What Am i doing here?

is there more to life than this? Do I have a purpose?

We produced a small video to discuss our experience of Alpha

This Time online

Due to the on-going situation we are going to run our next course on-line. You will join our sessions via Zoom. We’ll watch the video together and then have some interesting chats.

Our first course was a great success so we’re sure you will enjoy the experience.

There’s no pressure on you to do anything and there is no charge for the course.
Just connect in and enjoy the evening. We can’t wait to meet you.

Each session will start at 7:00pm and we will be always be finished by 8:00pm.


Our course is aimed at everyone.

So whether you are a long standing Catholic but have never had any religious education after school or maybe someone who doesn’t feel they have any faith at all you will be made more than welcome.

There is no pressure on you to take this any further.

Is there more to life than this?

You can watch the first episode of the Alpha Course here.
