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’ll be eating some nice food, you’ll meet some great people, we’ll be watching an excellently produced short video and we’ll try and answer some of these questions in a friendly and welcoming manner.

There’s no pressure on you to do anything – you don’t even have to pay – just come along and enjoy the evening. We can’t wait to meet you.


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.

All we ask is that you come along and enjoy the evening.

Is there more to life than this?

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