How can I learn more?

We have courses running throughout the year at The Lantern on a variety of subjects ranging from Alpha to Marriage.

If you would like to learn more and know more, feel free to sign-up and get involved. Our courses are below: 


Starting September 25th 2019

The Alpha course is a fantastic way to find out more about the Christian faith in a relaxed, interesting and non-threatening way. We run a number of Alpha courses over the year, in different formats. Typically, each session begins with coffee followed by a short talk and discussion about an aspect of Christianity. Everyone is welcome! 

The first four weeks we cover:

Who is Jesus?

Why did Jesus die?

How can I have faith?

Why and how do I pray?

If you are unsure about signing up for the whole course, feel free to come to the first evening and make your mind up after that!
