Home groups

A homegroup is a chance to meet up in a small group with others from church in someone’s home to get to know each other better, to pray together and to learn and study together.

Sometimes we study the Bible itself as a group, and other sessions have included working through Christian books together and watching DVDs about issues like money and community and thinking about what role our faith plays in these situations. Whatever we do, there’s plenty of space for discussion and ideas and everyone is very welcome.

Homegroups meet once a fortnight. There’s one on Wednesday and one on Thursday, so pick an evening that works for you!

For more information, contact Anna and Barrie Whittaker (01865 426935) for the Thursday group, or Martin Morse (01865 326641) for the Wednesday group, or look out for the dates in the pew sheet and just turn up!

Hope to see you there!
