New Small Group

October 3, 2017

Small groups that read and study the Bible together and who pray for each other and the needs of the wider church are the engine house of church life and growth. Everyone can take part, and everyone is welcome …

This Thursday, October 5th, 1:30pm at St Michael’s sees the start of our new, day time, small group, led by Sue and Val. Lots of you have shown interest in coming along, so this is just a reminder – we look forward to seeing you there! 🙂

Now that summer’s here…

July 11, 2017

… a couple of our activities are taking a break until September:

Our depression support group, Forward Step, which meets on Tuesday mornings will start again on September 12th.

Our Wednesday evening group, Live the Word, is also taking a break until September.

Our Monday and Thursday evening groups, however, continue to meet!

Our Thursday evening group is meeting back at the Vicarage on July 6th at 7.30pm. We’re carrying on looking at the book of Acts.

Want to join us? Everyone is welcome to join us. It’s a great place to pray for one another and help one another grow in the faith. If you don’t know where the vicarage is, talk to Tim and he will give directions.

Look forward to seeing you!


Building the church of the future

Our Monday evening group may be small, but it is a lot of fun! Yesterday we were looking at the work of the Holy Spirit. Although we can’t see the Holy Spirit, we can see what He does. Rather like the magnets in this construction kit, for example.

So the challenge I set the group was to use the kit to build a church and this is what they came up with after three quarters of an hour:

It may be small, but it’s perfectly formed, with vestry and children’s room – a magnetic church which hopefully will attract many. Next week we may even have a vicar to go with it! This all led very naturally into the theme of the week, which was Jesus’ teaching on being salt and light in the world (Matt 5:13-16)

We are really hoping and growing that the group will grow. So…

June 19th, 7.30pm at St Michael’s we are having a party. It will feature cake, and praise, and maybe a film. All the young and young at heart are warmly invited. It promises to be a very special occasion.


WATT … when?

April 24, 2017

Women Around the Table is our monthly meeting for women of all ages, to get together to talk and pray, drink tea and eat cake!

We usually meet on the last Sunday of the month, but as there is a shared lunch after church on Sunday April 30th, we will instead meet on Sunday, May 7th, 5pm at the Vicarage when we’ll be preparing for our week of prayer, Thy Kingdom Come.


Grow the Word – Mondays

April 17, 2017

***STOP PRESS***

Our Monday small group is meeting today after all … see you at St Michael’s at 7:30pm 🙂

Grow the Word is a small group for enquirers, beginners and the young at heart – we spend time with the Bible, exploring, explaining and questioning together. All welcome 🙂


Reminder – The Big Big Picture

April 5, 2017

Our monthly gathering of all the small groups is tonight, Wednesday, 7:30pm at St Michael’s when we will be looking at the life of Abraham.
