Groups for Informing Life & Mission
We have a few different groups, each adopting its own specific purpose and reason to get together. Some act as prayer support units – people who pray for each other and/or pray for a particular area or ministry opportunity.
One particular group has an emphasis on fellowship, with mutual support of both a prayer and practical nature. Their meetings focus on Bible study as their core means to build each other up. Each member has different avenues of volunteering, serving, outreach and work. They bring the opportunities and difficulties that these present to the group to pray through, seeking to encourage each other.
Blokes Group: a group of guys who meet with a specific focus of how we relate our faith to our workplaces. Placing a high value on being committed to each other, we look to support one another beyond our meetings, and accept that members’ work/travel commitments often impinge on being able to get to our gatherings. Sometimes it works out that just a few of us meet down the pub!
We currently use a range of media specifically prepared for men’s groups to seed our discussions. We also organise and make happen ‘Dads & Kidz‘ Saturday morning events which have created an open door for newcomers and people not in the church.
