Sandy Millar to speak at Yare Valley Filling Station 

Bishop Sandy Millar, former Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton and initiator of the Alpha course will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the Yare Valley Filling Station on September 15.

Sandy Millar will be the next guest speaker at Yare Valley’s Filling Station on Thursday, September 15 from 7pm.

As the Vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton in London from 1985 -2005 Rt Rev Sandy Millar oversaw its growth to become the largest church in the Church of England and was responsible for overseeing the growth of the Alpha course from a small local parish resource to one used by thousands of churches around the world.

Sandy is still active as a licensed Honorary Assistant Bishop in both the Diocese of London and in the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich where he now lives. 

The Yare Valley Filling Station meets in Alpington’s modern and airy new School Hall on the third Thursday evening of every month, offering high quality guest speakers and teachers, contemporary sung worship and powerful, accessible prayer ministry.

It is part of a growing network of Filling Stations in rural communities around the world which are fully Christian based and spiritual, but presented in an informal, welcoming and accessible way for those unused to church services. It is designed to be a place to meet up, make new friends, build faith and learn more about who God is in Jesus and why so many are seeking him. 

Coffee and cake will be served at the 7pm with the led part of the meeting starting at 7.30pm – 9.30pm
