Home groups

Adults; weekday evenings in homes throughout the area

Meeting, learning and praying in small groups is one of the most effective ways for anyone to grow as a Christian. Each of our several groups has its own "personality" and if you are thinking of joining one, please speak to a member of the church leadership to help find the group that will suit you best.
