Small Groups are a key part of our community life - we put a lot of emphasis on our relationships together.
Our groups happen weekly or fortnightly in people’s homes.
We asked the leaders and facilitators of our groups to summarise what happens in them....
"The Good Book Group meets every fortnight to study a book, or theme in the Bible. We read the book (yes, all of it, if it's a fairly short one!), ask questions like who wrote it, why and when. Our prayer is that in our reading and listening to the Word, we will deepen our knowledge of and love for Jesus, the living Word, and allow Him to write on our hearts (2 Cor 3.3). It sounds serious, and it is quite, but it's really rich and deep, and no questions are too silly!"
"Being & Doing: A homegroup of just over 20 people (including children) who meet together every other week. The "Being" part is about getting to know God, ourselves and each other better through looking at what it means to be Christian, and praying for and encouraging each other in all our various situations. Over the last couple of years we've done this through the 'Spiritual Formation' series, 'Mark's Gospel' and we're currently studying '1 Peter'. The "Doing" part is sometimes group action to help others within or outside the church, or taking up the challenge from our "Being" part to live out Jesus' teaching on serving others in our daily lives. We can also enjoy the opportunity to catch up with each other over a cup of coffee and some cake!"
“Upcycling: We meet each fortnight to think and talk about how our faith in Jesus impacts, or should impact, the world around us. We take time to listen to God and to each other, and then explore what we think about applying God’s word to our lives. If you want to stretch your mind and your spirit in good company then come and join in.”
"Brockley Barge Homegroup: Yes, that's right, we meet in the local once a month to talk God and have a drink together. Anyone is welcome to join in with the conversation and be part of the discussion. We meet the first Tuesday of each month."
Other groups will develop as interest grows!If you’d like to know more, please get in touch.
