Courses run at St Margaret’s

St Margaret’s regularly run the Alpha Course. We will update this page when a new one is starting, or to register interest, please contact Andrew – details below.

Each evening begins at 7:15pm with a meal with or Danish Pastry and coffee, followed by a talk and discussions in small groups. This allows you an opportunity to ask questions, express opinions and discuss the evening.

There will also be a day away in the middle of the course, which is a wonderful opportunity to get away from it all, enjoy time together and focus on the Holy Spirit.

The Resolve Course

In 2017 we ran a trial of the Resolve Course and those who attended found it a fascinating and helpful course that helped them be more intentional and defined in their life goals. The Resolve course very gently introduces the idea that God can resource and shape our lives for good. The Course uses video to present everyday scenarios we face in life with expert vox pops and interesting discussion starters. We will be running this course again, at the beginning of the new year as people make their New Year’s resolution.

The Start Course

Over six weeks course members get to watch a variety of videos designed to help them think through where they are at in life and help them to explore some of the bigger questions about why we are here and where does God fit in. Presented in a relaxed informal setting, this is a special time to set aside from the rush of life and review what truly matters and address some of the deeper questions we wrestle with and recognise the work and life of Jesus Christ.

All courses are run by arrangement – for more information contact:
