A typical house group has about 10 people. It includes times to chat and
catch up with other group members over coffee, a bible study led by the group
leaders and a short time of prayer to talk to God about what has been discussed
and to pray for one another. The group normally lasts for about an hour
and a half. People who belong to a house group find them to be places in
which friendships with others in the church family can be made and deepened, a
place to learn from the Bible and a place for encouragement, practical support
through prayer and pastoral care.
We have nine house groups that meet in the homes of
different members of the church family. They meet at different times of
the week (some during the day and on different weekday evenings) and there are
groups in each of the three villages. For more details on house groups
please contact Duncan Beet.

encouraging, it's great to share the good news of Jesus with new
friends and also know you can ask any questions, nothing is out

"My time at house group is a chance to get together with
people from the church family during the week, to spend time
looking at the bible and to have fun getting to know new people.

house group, eat puddings!"
