Meeting with a small group to pray, talk, study and care together has for centuries been recognised as a vital part of following Jesus.
Whether you form a prayer-triplet, sign up for a short course, or join a year-on-year Homegroup, don’t miss out on being part of a Hub this term.
Spring Term 2020
The Bible Course
The Bible Course by the Bible Society (hosted by Nick) runs for 8 weeks, mainly alternate Monday evenings, starting on the 13th January. The Bible Course is a brilliant and accessible way to understand the full Bible story. There is a film and discussion each week, you get a helpful manual to go with it and there will always be lots of cake!
It’s particularly a great follow-on if you’ve already done the Alpha Course and also if you just want to get to know the Bible better.
This term-time group for teens meets from 6 to 8pm on Tuesday evenings. We start with a meal together and end with (usually quite energetic) games. In between we take the chance to ask the big questions about life and faith. We also have a social evening once every half term – so far we’ve been climbing, kayaking, bowling, outdoor ice-skating and had an evening at an aquapark! Led by Rachel Wooden, Russell Dickens and the team.
There are Hub groups that meet in local homes for year-round prayer, bible study and conversation. Meeting weekly or fortnightly, they are great for those who would like to build relationships, go deeper in prayer and explore faith with a regular group. One group is going to be exploring the book of Romans this term and another is looking at the life of Joshua in the Old Testament.
We plan to run some Lent Groups in the second half of this term – small groups reading the Lent book “Saying Yes to Life” and meeting to chat and pray about what they’ve read. Let us know you’re interested and we’ll be in touch.
The Alpha Course – starts Sept 2020
Alpha aims for everyone to have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; whoever they are and wherever they are in the world. The films are engaging and well produced and there is always time for plenty of discussion and questions! Let us know you’re interested and we’ll get in touch when the next dates are planned.
