In more normal times, our Fellowship Groups offer a time to pause and reflect, and the opportunity for important discussion about Christian life in the modern world.

They also offer welcome opportunities for social meetings with fellow church members: meetings are informal, and are held either in members' homes or in church rooms. 

The exact number, make-up and purpose of the groups changes and evolves over time. At present, the following groups meet:


Monday Fellowship Group

Tuesday Home Group

Wednesday Home Group

Friday Morning Bible Fellowship
