Vicar's Confirmation course
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.
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.
Judy Bixter - Every Wednesday, Odd Down
We meet every Wednesday evening at 7.45pm at a 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.
Exploring Christianity Course - Run on demand.
This is a great course for those just starting on the Christian life, wanting to know more or wanting to be Confirmed into the Church of England. It's run by the Vicar, meeting in a home and runs at any time as a group forms. It can be as small as one person or large - Just ask!
