Whoever we are, whatever we've done, God welcomes us. Relationships matter to him – and to us, too. We prioritise the building of relationships through 'Home Groups'.
We try to include everyone in the church in a Home Group, no matter what our age and how involved in the life of the church we are so that, whatever else, someone will be praying for you........ then we attempt to DO things together....
Most groups include children as well as adults; some even include people who wouldn't say they're Christians yet!
Each group seeks:
- to encourage each other in our life of faith
- to develop ways of caring for each other
- to pray for ourselves and others
- to enable those group members (who wish) to meet together regularly
- to be 'responsible' for each other

There are currently several groups, and attending members have opted to meet weekly or fortnightly, generally in different homes.
Group meetings are typically a dozen or so church members who commit to supporting each other and those who do not attend, and together seek to put their Christian faith into practice.
What they do together varies according to the character of the group and whatever the church has agreed, but most meetings will include a relaxed mixture of social time, bible exploration & discussion, and some prayer together for the concerns of group members and for the needs of the wider community.
Being part of a Home Group can provide an opportunity to develop close friendships with a small number of people, and to take real steps forward in the Christian life.
If you would like to join a Home Group, please contact Ian Pullinger, our vicar, contact us.
