Discipleship & Small Groups
Over twenty groups meet in people’s homes around the Parish, some weekly and some fortnightly:
• to look at the Bible and see how God can help us to grow in our faith and make the most of our daily lives;
• to find friendship and support by a regular getting together;
• to pray together for any needs we may have.
One of the best ways to feel at home here is to join a small group and we would be delighted to help you find the one that is right for you. Please see the leaflets in both churches for more details, or contact the Parish Office.
Christianity Explored, Alpha and other discipleship and evangelistic Course ~ For anyone interested in learning more about God, we run evening courses looking at the essentials of what it means to believe. Sometimes involving food, there is a DVD and an opportunity for discussion in groups and to ask any questions you want! There is no charge for the course.
Parenting Courses ~ One for parents of 0-10s, and another course for those with teenage children, these groups begin with a DVD full of practical wisdom and help, but more especially the chance to meet with other parents for support and encouragement.
The Marriage Course ~ To help you invest in this most important of your relationships, this seven session course is designed to make good marriages even better!
