ALFA Celebrations


Our June event will be something different!  We have recently joined the Quiet Garden Movement and will be having a "Quiet Garden Afternoon" on 29th June - see more in our Quiet Garden section.



The last celebration was on Saturday 23rd March, 2019




the Tithe Barn, High Street, Shirehampton, Bristol, BS11 0DE


The Footprints group acted out the story of Martha and Mary and we thought about "Being still"! We made laminated cards with beautiful pictures and verses from the Bible.




Refreshments from 3pm (tea, coffee, soft drinks plus cakes and fruit) followed at 3.30pm by an informal inclusive Christian worship time including Bible readings and songs with actions (taking part is of course optional!).




The Christmas Celebration

on Tuesday 18th December

at Etloe Church, Cossins Road, Redland, Bristol BS6 7LY


The previous celebration at the Tithe Barn was


On Saturday 14th July, 2018



The theme was "Fruit" - especially the fruit of the Holy Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  We painted letters on stones to spell these out and will be putting them round the gardens at Fulligrove House. Here are a few photos. 








In April the theme was "Hope".  We planted sunflower seeds and thought about how God has made them so that if we water them, in good soil they will grow.  It reminded us that our prayers are like watering seeds - waiting to see what God makes happen.




In November the Footprints group acted out part of the last supper - with the disciples told to approach a man carrying water who would lead them to a suitable room.



In July this was Chris as a Roman road engineer, introducing members of the Footprints group acting out Jesus washing his disciples' feet.

ALFA Christian Community is a Christian charity that seeks to value and develop skills especially with adults with learning disabilities.  We run a training lunch club in Redland and hope to set up a residential community in the near future.  The leaders (Chris and Lyn Morton) also help lead a mid-week Christian group (Footprints) linked with the Livability group (formerly Prospects).


A pdf A4 poster and invitations are available here.
