Church Life

Our life together: study, prayer and our social activities

Housegroups

The next series of house groups will take place in October and November:

Monday evenings:
October 12th and 19th; November 2nd and 9th, 7.00 – 8.30 pm.
Leader: Li Tang; technical support: Kelly O’Doherty.

Tuesday afternoons:
October 13th and 20th; November 3rd and 10th, 2.30 – 4.00 pm.
Leader: Janet Bottoms; technical support: Deborah McVey.

Both groups will use the same material, ‘Heart and Soul’, which looks at the theme of Christian worship. The restrictions and changes brought about by Covid-19 have raised questions about, for example, the nature of worship, and its importance to us as individuals and as a church community.

As we look forward to worshipping and working together in our remodelled sanctuary, the material will help us to consider the importance of worship for our church’s mission in the world. Copies of the material will be available through the church office. Please contact Ann to sign up, indicating which group you wish to take part in.

In view of the ongoing restrictions due to Covid-19, all of these meetings will take place online, via Zoom. We are aware that not all who wish to participate will be able to do so on-line. If you inform the church office of this by telephoning 01223 312814 we will seek alternative ways of enabling you to take part.

A free sample of the material can be viewed on the Faith and Worship website.
