House groups

House groups follow a set programme of topics following the themes that were preached on in the previous Sunday’s sermon. House groups vary greatly in their composition, style and the way they tackle the study material. However, all are friendly, supportive and are a great way of getting to know people and finding your place within the church. Ideas and visions arising from house groups are a major source of the mission work undertaken by the church. Anyone who would like more information about a particular house group, house groups in general or to join a group should contact Jeanette Hardy, the worship portfolio leader on 01642 714799.
