Housegroups are an invaluable way to find fellowship during the week and they come in many forms. We believe a church is made stronger by its individual groups and would encourage you to join one or team up with others to start your own home group.
Help is on hand for those interested in becoming housegroup leaders – a library of resources/bible studies, regular leaders meetings & more. If you’d like more information about housegroups or are interested in starting your own, please talk to Margaret Joyce or contact the Church Office on 835228.
Below is a summary of our current housegroups
Margaret Joyce (Day Time Group) - Every Tuesday, St James’ Lounge
We meet in the St James Lounge on Tuesdays at 11.00am during term time. This is a group for those who cannot come to an evening group. At the moment we are studying acts, we really enjoy getting to grips with scripture.
Margaret Joyce (Evening Group) - Every Thursday, Odd Down
We meet every Thursday evening at our home at 7.30pm. This group is a follow up to last year's Alpha course. Everyone is really hungry to learn more of the Christian faith. We have lots of fun as we learn.
John & Claire Morrish - Alternate Tuesdays (term time only) , Combe Down
We meet alternate Tuesdays at our home from 8pm. We're a mixed age group, the only common strand at present is that we are all parents. We have studied a variety of topics - most recently we have looked at the Nooma DVD's, studied the letters of John and we are presently doing a series on Living By Grace.
Charles & Chris Stammers - Every Wednesday, Odd Down
We meet every Wednesday evening at 7.45pm at our home, the members of group share leading and hosting. Normally have a series of about six meetings following a theme in which we have bible study, discussion, meditation, prayer, worship, tea, coffee and biscuits. After each series we have social event which involves a shared meal.
Vicki & Dave Atkinson - Alternate Wednesdays, Odd Down
We meet alternate Wednesdays at 8pm. Mostly we follow a bible study series (currently Thessalonians), with occasional socials mixed in. We are a mixed age group, all couples at present, and share the hosting and leading between us.
