Home Groups are a developing and significant part of the healthy church community life here.
In our groups we find personal discovery and spiritual growth as we learn, ask questions, involve ourselves in the lives of others and generally make ourselves vulnerable among other people who are doing just the same.
A regular morning group is held on Thursday mornings each week, providing a wonderful opportunity to meet with others, to study the Bible, share the joys and challenges together of being a Christian in society today, chat, share refreshments, and to get to know one another better.
Particular seasons in life and the church’s calendar also provide times for shorter fixed length groups to meet together. Advent is a season for preparation and focuses on our need to get ready to meet with Jesus, so what better way than in an Advent Home Group!
During Lent we had a significant number of people who attended a Home Group which followed the Churches Together course entitled ‘The Mystery of God,’ which challenged us to consider such issues as Life and Death, Good and Evil, Sin, Suffering and Hope. There was much for us to engage with in our discussions.
Our Home Groups offer smaller meetings than larger church gatherings, helping relationships to develop, building a sense of community and belonging. Deeper friendships are forming too, as people share and grow in understanding and spiritual maturity.
New members are always welcome, do come and join these informal and enjoyable groups.
