Small Groups  

There are over 30 Small Groups in the parish, which  generally meet regularly from once a week to once a month, for an hour or two in members’ houses. Group size varies between about 6 and 12 members.

There is no fixed format for meetings, but most will include a combination of prayer, listening to the Word of God, sharing our beliefs, reflecting on how we can respond, and socialising.  

The groups are supported by the Small Christian Core Community.
