Tastebuds is an 8 week course (one night a week) which makes no assumptions of any understanding of Christianity. It offers a relaxed environment where you can ask any searching question which might help you understand what Christians believe.


In the context of small groups and overall  group discussions, we look at the possibilities of the existence of God, who he/she/it might be, who  Jesus was or is and whether he has any relevance to our lives and how

we live today.

Alpha is a 10 week course (one night a week + a Saturday Away Day) which naturally follows on from Tastebuds. Alpha is a chance to delve a little deeper, looking at subjects such as; our assurance of faith, how and why we pray and read the Bible, the role the Holy Spirit and the response of the Church.

what Christians believe and why.

At St Paul's we run two courses throughout the year to help explore this belief:
