Forming Intentional Disciples

In late 2016 our parish ran study groups reading 'Forming Intentional Disciples' by Sherry Weddell. In doing this are followed a pattern being followed all across the Plymouth Diocese by our new Diocesan Department for Evangelisation.

What do I need to do before the meetings?
Take one of the books in the porch and read the two chapters assigned for the next meeting.  Write down two points from the book that you’d like to share with the group. 
When will we meet?
Depending on attendance, there will be two different groups: one meeting on 
Thursday evenings 7-8pm, the other meeting Friday mornings 10.15-11.15am (after Mass)

We will follow the pattern below of 6 meetings:

       (1) discuss chapters 1 and 2, Thurs 10th Nov & Fri 11th;
       (2) discuss chapters 3 and 4, Thurs 17th Nov & Fri 18th;
       (3) discuss chapters 5 and 6, Thurs 24th Nov & Fri 25th;
       (4) discuss chapters 7 and 8, Thurs 1st Dec & Fri 2nd;
       (5) discuss chapters 9 and 10, Thurs 8th Dec & Fri 9th;
       (6) discuss chapters 11 and 12, Thurs 15th Dec & Fri 16th

What will be the format of the meetings?
As elsewhere in the Diocese, at the meeting each member of the group will be invited, in turn, to share two points from the chapters that they particularly found noteworthy.  The parish priest will then conclude with a summary.
