Life Groups

As a community of Christians, we want to grow together both in friendship and spiritually.

We have a variety of LIFE groups that meet in people’s homes during the week. They are a place of safety where we can be ourselves and develop deeper friendships with others than we might by simply coming to Church each week. We look at the Bible together, talk about what it means and pray. Some meet during the day and some in the evening, some meet weekly and some meet fortnightly.

If you are interested in joining a group, please speak to one of the Minster Leadership Team or a Life Group leader.

Then we share prayer needs and pray together - sometimes in peaceful silence, sometimes with spoken prayers. We aim to provide a safe space, a learning space, a growing in our faith in Jesus space and a loving space.

Lizzy's Thursday LIFEGROUP

When? 10.30am to Midday on Thursdays

How often? Alternate weeks (mostly!)

Who is the host? Lizzy Davey

Where? Various members homes, decided at each meet.

About: We know each other very well and support one another in prayer and other practical ways. We are very democratic as we all take turns to lead the study but there is NO pressure to do so. We all decide together what we will study. We would all say we have grown in faith and that the study is our greatest way of learning and being close to God. We find the discussions open an enormous amount of wide and varied subjects within our faith. We also laugh a lot!
We look forward to having some new blood to join us!
