We have a number of groups at St Paul’s with three main aims - to encourage members to grow:
in their relationship with God
in their relationships with each other
in their engagement with the local community and the wider world
LISTENING TO GOD THROUGH THE BIBLE
The Bible...dry and dusty?... exciting and challenging?
This small group provides a space where we can discover together how, in the 21st century, we can listen to a God who longs to listen to us.
Led by Jean Sims, we meet fortnightly on a Monday afternoon, in Church.
Taking us further in our walk of faith wherever we are now. We aim to find time and space to think about the big questions of life and to explore the life of the man at the heart of the Christian faith.
Led by Ruth and Ian Robinson, together with Vicky Larkin, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings each month. In addition some members meet up occasionally for a tea/coffee.
John and Sheila Christophers’ bible study group meet on the 1st and 3rd
Wednesdays at 7:45 pm each month reflecting on passages from
scripture and asking “What does it mean to you?”
An open and welcoming Life group for women that aims to provide an opportunity in busy lives for some space, spiritual nourishment and the opportunity to share and discover more of God through study of the Bible and friendship with each other.
We currently meet on Thursday evenings every 2 or 3 weeks in one of our homes.
When young people get a bit 'too old' for young church, what is there for them at St Paul's?
Infinity is our young people’s group who have just completed Youth Alpha and who will be embarking on other activities and programmes going forward.
SILENT PRAYER GROUP
This group meets at 8.15 pm on Wednesdays. We gather to pray, together but silently, for the needs of the church and the world, for the role of St Paul's as a witness in the community, for those known to us and for one another. The hour closes with a few spoken prayers led by one
of the group. We have found praying together in this way a source of support and encouragement and the atmosphere of peace and calm very therapeutic.
Anyone is welcome to join us,
for all or part of the hour, either occasionally or regularly.
