We run a number of “home groups” (or “fellowship groups”) around the parish in the afternoon and in the evening. Some meet fortnightly, others monthly. The topics under discussion often differ from group to group although from time to time, all the groups use the same material.
The purpose of the groups is to provide a welcoming environment where Christians at all stages of their spiritual journey can discuss what the Bible says in particular passages or on particular topics and its relevance for living today. The groups are small enough for members to feel comfortable sharing thoughts with one another. They enable friendships to develop and generate mutual support and encouragement.
What can you expect to find in a group? There are three Fs.
Fellowship / Friendship
Fun – There can be a lot of laughter.
Food – Some groups share a meal together. Generally there are refreshments, but most importantly, there is spiritual nourishment.
