Home groups meet together for regular fellowship, bible study and prayer. As the name suggests, the groups meet at the home of one of the members and each of the group has a different kind of focus. If you’ve never done this sort of thing before, why not give it a try? The groups are very friendly; there are no ‘experts’ just people learning together and helping each other along the way.
Peter and Anne Knight’s group
What: We are a group of about 12. We start by having a chat, followed by worship and prayer, and then move on to a bible study trying to apply what we learn to our daily lives.
Who: Peter or Anne Knight
Where: Peter and Anne’s house
When: Tuesday evenings, fortnightly
Please note that this group is currently full, but still worth a chat with Peter or Anne if you are interested.
Thursday Afternoon Bible Study
What: We start off with a cup of tea/coffee (and biscuits if we aren’t dieting) and then have a general chat catching up with each other’s lives. We take it in turns to lead a bible study and discussion, relating what we are reading to present day experiences.
Who: Please contact Gill Wilkinson
Where: The home of Gill Wilkinson
When: the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month from 1.45pm to 3.30pm
20’s and 30’s @St. Mary’s
When: Monday evenings twice a month
Where: Various locations ranging from local pubs to a comfy home.
What: We meet on Monday evenings twice a month for dinner and bible study. We are passionate about delving into God’s word making it relevant to our lives, being challenged by life’s big questions and growing through love, prayer, worship and laughter!
Who: Join our Facebook page to keep up to date! Contact Rich & Yvonne Mullins or Billy Stott
The Original Bible Study Group
What: We start with coffee or tea and biscuits and chat about everything. One of the members of the group usually prepares a study on a passage in the Bible ranging from a few verses to a few chapters. We are working our way through the various books of the Bible using commentaries to enlighten the passage.
Some of the members are happy to lead the studies, but others just come to take part. We all contribute to the discussion using our favourite versions of the Bible, and go home feeling we have learned something.
At present the group has only 7 members and would welcome new members.
Who: Speak to Ken McMurray or Hilary Derbyshire
Where: The home of Philip and Hilary Derbyshire
When: Thursday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. We try to meet fortnightly but it is not always this regular.
What: This is a ladies’ bible study group, or rather 2 groups, one meeting on Friday mornings and the other on Tuesday evenings.
We usually begin by catching up on how our respective weeks have gone. After that, we spend about an hour studying the bible, before closing with a time of prayer.
We’re a really diverse bunch of ladies at different stages in our lives and in our Christian journeys. None of us has all of the answers but we love learning from one another.
Do get in touch if you’d like to join us. We promise to provide you with plenty of tea and cake, and a very warm welcome.
Who: Contact Clare Hall about the Tuesday evening group or Clare Bellini about the Friday morning group
Where: At various homes
When: Tuesday Evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and Friday mornings from 9.45am until noon.
