New Year – New Courses

Happy New Year from us all at St Michael’s Church. 

We run a range of practical courses throughout the year here in Stoke Gifford. January is the time for three of them to begin. Why not start your 2014 by signing up to explore something new?


Millions of people around the world have enjoyed taking part in Alpha. We’ve been running the course here in Bristol for many years now. Alpha is a relaxed, informative way to explore the meaning of life together. We run two courses in parallel – one in the evening with a meal, another during the daytime with coffee, cake and a crèche. Peopler are signing up now for the next two courses. You can come to our first taster sessions and then decide whether to stay for the rest of the course

Alpha Tasters:

Tuesday 14 January, 7.00pm with a meal

Thursday 16 January, 10.00am with coffee, cake and a crèche

Both in the Old School Rooms
