The United Benefice of Withington, Sevenhampton with Charlton Abbots, Hawling, Whittington, Dowdeswell and Andoversford, Shipton and Cold Salperton
Lots of people really enjoy the opportunity to get together regularly in small, informal groups, where we can learn from each other about what it means to be a Christian in the every day situations that we all live in. It’s in this way that we grow more confident in the little bit of faith that we have, and can support each other through whatever life brings.
To enable more informal meeting than a Sunday morning at church can allow we have 6 small groups that meet in people’s homes during the week, both during the day and in the evening, providing everyone an opportunity to attend. Each group has about 6-12 members. The groups provide a setting for Bible study, discussion, prayer and closer friendship than a large gathering allows. As friendships build the group offers a place where individuals can share their concerns with fellow Christians knowing that whatever is discussed is in confidence.
The meetings have a serious side as we learn together but we always seek to enjoy our friendship and fellowship, and have some social times together as well.
Most groups meet fortnightly during the term times. Most are in the evening, one on a Monday afternoon.
You are welcome to join at any time during the year, or just come along for a “taster” .
Please contact Revd Colin Randall for more details.
