Home group

Home Group Bible study

Our home group meets in term time, Wednesday evenings at 8pm. There are 9 regulars, with an average attendance of 7, so there’s room for more,if you are interested. It's members come from mainstream Christian traditions.
The evenings start and finish with informal chat. Tea and biscuits are provided and we include a short prayer time.
YouTube videos or DVD's are occasionally used especially, if last minute changes prove necessary. Leadership varies week by week, usually led by local clergy supported by our own members. Colin Smith facilitates, co-ordinates and some times leads the group.

Rudyard lake trip out

 We are always looking for a suitable trip out or guest session leaders, and welcome suggestions. The photograph shows some of us waiting for the train to take us to the far end of Rudyard lake on our 2015 day out. This year we have been out for an evening, meal together at a local Italian restaurant

We are have recently completed a short series led by our minister on issues around the cross and its meaning for us today. Following our summer break we will follow a programme which incorporates, a study of the book of Jonah – this year's national Bible week study book – and a number of social justice issues. We recommence our meetings on Wednesday 19th September, continuing on Wednesday evenings until our last meeting before our Christmas break on Wednesday 5th December. Full details of the draft programme can be seen below.
