Home groups are fellowship groups of adults that meet in a member’s home rather than in a church building. Currently we have two home groups – one meets on a Sunday and the other on a Wednesday – each from 8.00 to 9.30 pm during term times.
Through studying the Bible together, listening to one another and to God through prayer, we aspire to grow in faith and discipleship to serve God, the community, and one another better. There is also the inevitable chat over a cup of tea or coffee as part of the meeting!
Each evening stands alone so there will never be a sense of having to catch up.
This is an ecumenical group for women of all ages that meets on alternate Tuesday afternoons from 2.30 to 3.30 pm, from September to May. The meeting usually starts with opening devotions followed by a speaker (subjects are wide ranging!) and finishes with a cup of tea; but we also enjoy occasional trips out for afternoon tea, the annual Christmas lunch, and a summer visit to Shepherds Dene. A donation of £1.00 is suggested to cover expenses and refreshments.
Each year we support a different charity and from time to time we take part in events organised by Methodist Women in Britain.
Men’s Prayer Breakfast
This is usually on the third Friday of each month at 6.30 am at the church (but sometimes another Friday in the month is identified as best for those who come along). Fuelled by bacon butties, we pray for one another, the church, and our community. Different members lead each time. Although normally only a small group, it is a great time of fellowship and encouragement, and we trust it makes a difference in our own lives and the life of the church.
