Monday homegroup

This is led by Chris and Julie Sharp and provides an intimate, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which to explore what it means to be a Christian and live the Christian faith. Over the past couple of years we’ve been following material from the Pilgrim course. Each course runs for six consecutive weeks. There’s always room for one or two more to join the group, so if you’d like to expand your knowledge and discuss your understanding of the Christian faith, please get in touch with the parish administrator to find out when the next course will be starting.

Tuesday homegroup

This meets from 7.45 to 9.15 pm on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. The focus is on studying the Bible through material such as the York course, the Pilgrim course or a recommended book by a Christian writer. Typically six to eight people meet in one of the participants’ homes and the discussion is informal and confidential. We are always open to new members. Please be in touch with James Clay or ring 01962 852141 to find out more.

Thursday homegroup

This meets from 7.30 (for 7.45) to 9.30 pm, roughly fortnightly on Thursdays, at Peter and Irene Casey’s home in Sarum Road. We use a range of materials such as faith courses or films to help us meet God through the scriptures. We’d love to have new members. If you’re interested, please e-mail Peter and Irene or ring 01962 808776.

Book group

This meets from 2.30 to 4 pm on the first Monday of each month. We take it in turns to host the meeting and provide tea, coffee and biscuits. At the moment we’re studying Harold Kushner’s When Bad Things Happen to Good People. We each read a chapter between meetings and then come together to reflect and draw out topics to discuss. It isn’t always possible for everyone to attend each time, but as we all have our own copies we can keep up. We’re a friendly group and ensure that no one is put on the spot. People are welcome to contribute as little or as much as they would like, drawing on their life experiences in relation to the texts we’re reading.

Please see the parish calendar for details of our next meeting.
