As a group of churches, it is our vision to inspire faith. Inspiring faith means helping people take the next steps in faith, and growing in knowledge of and commitment to God. Whether you are exploring faith, returning to faith, or have been a Christian for many years, we hope you will find a small group or study that meets your need. If you can’t find anything or if you have an idea for a study or group, please get in touch with us!

Ponder and Pray- We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month on Zoom. Gathering together from 11-15am we begin our session at 11-30am. At each session we focus either on a sentence from the Bible or on a particular issue that is relevant at the time. We ‘ponder’ using the scripture to guide us and pray sometimes in silence or while music is playing. During Advent we shall focus on some of the people who appear on the fringes of the Nativity Story. To join the group or to learn more about what we do contact Freda on 01989 562366 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Advent Bible Study- Our modern Christmas celebrations can obscure the significance of the original event. Some even doubt its rootedness in real history.

This group will meet on zoom from 7pm , Tuesdays 7, 14, and 21 December. Contact Tiffany for more details.
