Alpha is an opportunity to find out more about the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening setting over a series of thought-provoking weekly sessions. It is low key, friendly and fun, and is supported by all the main Christian denominations.

Every week you will get to share a meal, hear a talk on an interesting topic and get the chance to discuss it in an open and honest manner, where no question is too simple or too hostile. It's a great place to build friendships, some of which last beyond the course. If you are coming with friends you can choose to sit together, just let us know.

If you are interested in attending this term, please fill out your details on this page.

Prophetic Learning Community comes to the Charis!

Would you like to grow in your prophetic gift? Then this opportunity is for you! We’re excited to be running a Prophetic Learning Community (PLC) with Adrian Horner and Rachel Harris at the Charis Centre on Saturday 7th July, 3rd November 2018 and 23rd February 2019. To enable continuity and momentum we anticipate that attendees will commit to all three of the dates. 

The sessions will focus on nurturing and developing your prophetic gift through teaching, discussion and practical application, as well as building friendship together. 

Day 1 Dreams; Revelation, Interpretation & Application- Being prophetic outside of the church. This day will build on The Dreaming With God Day we ran in 2017.

Day 2 Building a Prophetic Culture- How the prophetic brings heaven’s atmosphere and how releasing and speaking God's truth brings life!

Day 3 Prophetic partnership- Apostles, prophets, angels and us!

For those of you who would like to get a head start, we recommend the book, 'Translating God' by Shawn Bolz, as background reading.

The course costs £69, and you can sign up by buying a ticket on this page today - space is limited.   Lunch is not included but tea and coffee will be served.
One final thing, if paying for the event is a problem for you, please do not let this be a barrier.  Contact the office via office@thecommunitychurch.org.uk and we can discuss this further with you.

You can sign up here.

In the spirit of being outward focussed people, we are asking for donations for the homeless shelter. This means making small hampers/boxes (think: shoe box) for either a male or female full of essentials they might need when they arrive at the shelter. Poundland & Primark are great places to get toiletries (toothbrushes, soap, deodorant, etc) and warm clothing (such as socks, gloves, thermals). Bring your donations along and we will pass them on.
