Small groups – the next step forward

We had a really special time last Saturday on our Christianity Explored day away. Comments about the course including:

  • Thought provoking
  • Reassuring and Challenging
  • Good DVD and Humour
  • Refreshing

Above all, there was a feeling we didn’t want the fellowship to stop. So we held a brainstorming session thinking how to run the small groups next term. We had a full and frank debate and we eventually managed to answer the following questions:

What are they for?

  • Fellowship (including coffee!)
  • Ministry of the word
  • Prayer
  • Looking outwards onto the world

When and where?

  • Wednesday afternoon/evenings
    (with a combined social or Saturday thrown in!)
  • St Barnabas/St Michael’s
  • With a recognition that not everyone can make these times or places


  • Both churches
  • Mixed group
  • Aimed not just at churchgoers but also newcomers

What do we need?

  • Trained leaders
  • Material that is relevant
  • Time for each other
  • Coffee!

So next term we will be looking at Joseph – a practical example of what it means to live out your faith in a real-life situation, rejected by your family, falsely accused, held in prison. Join us for the next step of this exciting journey!
