Small Groups

Small Groups are where people get together to make new friends, share a passion, or to ‘explore faith together.’  We are excited about having launched a different way of organising small groups from January 2019, which are now all running – if you are interested in joining one of the current small groups, please call the Church Office on 01767 312667. 

A new series of small groups will be announced around Easter, when you will be also able to sign up ‘online’.

 For this term, we shall be reading and discussing the rich spiritual truths in the gospel of John. This gospel is unique. It has a very different flavour to the other three gospels and we can be inspired by John’s passion for Jesus and His ministry.
 
 
 
The focus for this group will be a ‘practical’ exploration in praying for individuals in church or elsewhere. How to pray sensitively and effectively, hear from God and practically apply the gifts of the Spirit.
 
 
 
We aim to offer…
A place to share, receive and give;
Worship, Prayer, Bible Study;
Build Community, relax and enjoy social times

 All about parents doing the best they can as they navigate these years with their teenagers.
It gives parents the opportunity to explore essential parenting principles and share experiences and ideas.
 
 
 The Alpha Course provides the opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment.
Each weekly session over 10 weeks starts with a free meal and has a short talk followed by discussion in small groups.
 
Helps Christians reach their potential by helping them grasp all that happened the moment they became Christians: who they are in Christ; the truth of God’s unconditional love; why there is no condemnation; why they don’t have to languish in cycles of sin, negative thinking and hopelessness.

Why join a Small Group?
We think Small Groups are a really great way of connecting with lots of different people in both our church and local community. By being part of a small group you can:

  • Meet new people
  • Feel part of a great community
  • Learn from the Bible
  • Develop a deeper knowledge of God’s love for you 
  • Enjoy a range of groups, including interest groups.

 

Questions:

  • What if I don’t know what group to join? Feel free to chat to leaders to find out more about them and their small group. Alternatively, speak to either Mike Sladen or Jo Sharman, our Small Group Overseers, who’d be really pleased to help you.
  • Will I get my choice? We will make every effort to accommodate everyone. We’ll let you know if your choice of group(s) is full and help place you elsewhere.
  • How long have I got to book? Groups begin the week beginning the 28th January (with the exception of the Alpha and Freedom In Christ Courses). We encourage you to book early, as some groups may be popular and we don’t want you to miss out. Bookings for most groups will close on Sunday 20th January in order to give leaders time to confirm details such as venue, start date and time.
