About 60 of the St Peter’s and Junction family attend home groups. Together, we seek to learn more about Jesus and his teaching, and to explore what it means to be a Christian in our day to day lives. The teaching is centred on the bible, supplemented by study material in written or DVD form. The leaders encourage all members to participate. We find that everyone has their own personality, their own approach to the teachings and their own contributions; and that we learn from each other as much as from the teaching material. The groups vary in composition, timings and character, but also include times of worship and of prayer (including, in particular, intercessory prayer). A time of socializing is also an important part of each session. Maintaining confidentiality is an essential rule.

Yvonne and Margaret’s Group

We meet on alternate Monday mornings. During the last year we have covered various parts of the old and new testaments, ranging from the prophets to the gospels.  This year we also followed the Diocesan Lent Course and, although we found it difficult at first, we all finally gained from it.

Anne and Jeannette’s Group

We meet every Wednesday evening from 8 to 10pm. As well as our meetings, during the year we have enjoyed preparing and serving the meal at church breakfast meetings.  We also sponsor a little girl from the New Hope Centre in Swaziland via World Vision.  We enjoyed following the Diocesan Lent Course.

Alan’S Group

We meet every Tuesday from 7.30 to 9.30 pm. Our meeting includes a short time of praise, up to an hour of study and discussion and intercessory prayer. During the last year we completed a Jeff Lucas DVD series on Samson, a particularly profitable study of Hebrews, a study of Micah and the Diocesan Lent Course. We keep a record of our prayer topics and it is amazing to see the number of times that what we have prayed for has come to pass. God is good! We also have quizzes and other social events every few weeks. We support a child in Kenya via World Vision. Contact: 01622 744843

Beryl’s Group

Our group meets each Friday, from 10.30 to 12.30, with a welcome to stay for lunch. We completed the Diocesan Lent Course this year and followed it with a study of ‘The Miracles of Jesus’ using a book by Michael Symmonds– Roberts. Contact: 01622 741648

Vicky’s Group

We meet every Friday morning from 9.30-11am. We started doing an Alpha course a few years ago and have carried on from there. We normally follow a DVD teaching course – as we can turn the volume up due to there being quite a few toddlers amongst us! We are hoping to do another Alpha course again in September.

WOMEN WARRIORS

This is a group of ladies who meet on the last Thursday evening of each month to learn more about Jesus and hopefully grow closer to him through bible teaching and honest discussions.  Contact: 01622 744947

DANIEL PLAN GROUP

This is a follow-up group of people who had previously attended a 40-day DVD course, with weekly meetings, based on how Daniel looked after his body (using Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus and Friends). They meet for bible study – and may re-do the plan! Contact: TBC

 

Anni’s Prayer Group

The weekly Prayer Group meets each Tuesday from 11.00 to 12.30. We have quite a range of starting points for prayer, but usually we have a daily word of Scripture to start us with some food for thought. New people with prayer needs are always welcome, or any requests will be prayed for in confidence.  Matthew Ch. 18 v 20 “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them” Contact: 01622 746901
