Home groups are an informal gathering in a persons’ home to study the bible together in an atmosphere where you feel able to share opinions, discuss issues that may arise, support and pray for each other. They allow time for discussion and debate that often doesn't happen in church.
We have five home groups at St George's church one which has been meeting for just one year and another 26 years. Each group has its own distinct character and format some meeting weekly others every other week; one group likes to share a meal together each week, but are assured of refreshment both physical and spiritual at all.
“ Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105
The group chooses what it wants to study at any given time be it a book of the bible or a particular current issue considering how God speaks into that. Resources can be found online, at Christian bookshops and there are resources available from the church if inspiration is needed.
Home groups are an invaluable way to nurture your faith and develop a growing sense of closeness with God in a friendly relaxed environment.
If you feel you would like to join a home group or maybe there are a couple of you that would like to start your own but you aren't sure how to go about it please speak to our curate Helen Reeves who will be able to help you.
