Homegroups meet on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings in homes, and a daytime group meets occasionally on Friday mornings. Friendship, Bible study, prayer, food- encouragement and mutual support come from a small group where you can really belong.
Why attend a home group?
1. You will understand the Bible better in a small group.
In a small group setting, you can ask questions, participate in a discussion of the text, and hear others share insights and illustrations of the truth you are trying to grasp. The Bible must be applied to your own personal situations and that happens best in small groups.
2. You will begin to really feel like part of God´s family.
The greatest benefit is the close relationships and friendships that develop. Over fifty times in the New Testament the phrase "one another" is used to describe our relationship to other believers. We are instructed to love one another, encourage one another, pray for one another, accept one another, bear one another´s burdens, and build up one another. The best way to do this is in a small group! We really do need one another.
3. Prayer will become more meaningful to you.
There are many promises in the Bible related to group prayer. In praying together with a few others, we are drawn together and we find answers to the needs in our lives.
"They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Every day they continued to meet together... they broke bread in their homes and ate together... and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:42, 44, 46-47
Following Government guidelines we are pleased to inform you that we are now holding a church service at Stanton Road on Sunday's at 10.30 am.
The church is set out to comply with social distancing requirements, the chairs and tables are regularly sanitised, and we provide hand sanitisers.
Attendees are required to wear facial coverings and we are not able to enjoy sung worship. However, we play songs and hymns via You Tube, and hear God's word being read and preached.
We also stream our service live via Zoom and then post the video on our Services page on this website. Please be aware that we record this stream so joining the meeting authorises your involvement in the recording.
If you would like to join us in person please contact Neil Barker on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
