Exploring Christianity

At the heart of our ministry is our faith in Jesus Christ. We provide space for people to explore what it is to be a Christian, and then having made a commitment to follow Jesus, provide plenty of opportunities for everyone to grow in their faith.

Finding out more

We offer regular opportunities for people to explore more about the Christian faith. If you have hard questions that you want to explore, or simply want to understand more about the Christian faith, then Start! or Alpha may be for you.

 

Small groups

Meeting together in small groups is important for us as a church community. Our small groups are places through which individuals can find friendship and support, and can grow together as Christians. We want to encourage all who are involved in our church to be part of a small group, and we have a range of diverse groups suitable for all.

We have a large programme of Life Groups, House Groups and Bible Study groups, which meet at various times in the week in member’s homes around the community. Aside from the information provided here, there is a separate leaflet available which gives full details of the current Life Groups that are available.

Our house groups are established groups that meet at various times during the week in various locations around the community. Some are focused particularly on bible study, others provide more space for discussion and fellowship.

Life Groups  Life Groups are a growing network of small groups within the church. They offer people a place for mutual care and prayer, for bible study and learning. They are a great way for people to feel that they belong. They meet fortnightly through each term. Life Groups
House Groups  Our house groups are established groups that meet at various locations around the community. Some are focused particularly on bible study, others provide more space for discussion and fellowship.
