Home group

Our home group meets in term time, Wednesday evenings at 8pm. There are 9 regulars, with an average attendance of 7, so there’s room for more if you are interested. It's  members come from mainstream Christian traditions.

The evenings start and finish with informal chat. Tea and biscuits are provided and we include a short prayer time.

Videos or CDs are occasionally used especially,  if last minute changes prove necessary.  Leadership varies week by week, usually led by local clergy supported by  our own members . Colin Smith facilitates and co-ordinates the group.


 We are always looking for a suitable trip out or guest session leaders to replace one of the evening events, and welcome suggestions. The photograph shows some of us waiting for the train to take us to the far end of Rudyard lake on our 2015 day out.


We are now embarking on a short series on ways of using the bible before completing our consideration of the book of Acts, using the Bible study guide by Tom Wright, a leading New Testament scholar.
