At Bitterne there is a strong heritage of outward-facing mission and development work, as well as supporting our own community.
2nd Wednesday in March, June, September and December 2.30pm – 4.30pm, in the Parish Hall.
We serve a traditional afternoon tea, usually with some form of entertainment,
but really the afternoon is all about being able to get out and have a chat with other people.
Lifts are available if you need help with transport and if you would like to know more,
just contact us (via the office) and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Alpha is for anyone who would like to explore, question or discuss the Christian faith. The evening starts with a meal and a chance to get to know each other, followed by a talk and questions where you can ask anything.
A great introduction to Christianity and how it can be relevant to us today in our life and work.
As a church we believe it is important to look outwards - beyond the church, into the local community and across the world.
We support a number of Mission Organisations with prayer, publicity and financial support.
This is monitored and championed by our World Church Action Group.
You can find their displays at the back of church and in the church room.
Since 1986, Bitterne has had a unique partnership with the parishes of Namalemba and Bumoozi
in Eastern Uganda and there have been many visits in both directions.
As a church we aim to support their Christian faith, health and education.
