Home groups are a key part of the life of our church family. They provide a place where we can build valuable relationships as we encourage each other in developing Christlikeness. We can explore how the Bible applies in our daily lives and ask questions in a way that isn’t possible within a Sunday service. It is really valuable for every church member to belong to such a group. If you would like to know more, please ask Martyn (371354). Read more.
