In a large church it is sometimes difficult to feel you belong and you get lost in the crowd. How do you find a way in? How can you contribute to the church community? Our small groups are the answer and there are many to choose from.
That’s the name we give to our home groups that meet fortnightly on either a Tuesday or Wednesday from around 7.30pm and finish by 9.30pm. They have three aims:
MATURITY – We want to see every member of the church family become more like Jesus. That’s why studying the Bible is at the centre.
COMMUNITY – We don’t want to just get real with God but also with other Christians. Here we share life, laugh, pray and serve each other in the day to day experiences of life.
MISSION – Our vision is to see families, friends and communities transformed by the gospel so our small groups not only look inward but outward as well. God’s word drives us out into the world to share Jesus and so we support each other as we witness in the different places God has put us.

Other small groups
There are PRAYER GROUPS that meet during the week. One meets on Mondays at 11am and then women meet each Tuesday at 9.30am and men meet at 7am on two Fridays in the month. One week it is at the church and the other is via a telephone conference call.
OASIS is where women meet on Thursday mornings during term time, 9.30am-11.30am. Alternate weeks are for Bible study, usually working through a book in the Bible and the other weeks are more informal times of coffee and sharing. Babies and toddlers are welcome. A crèche is provided.
