Our Life Group meets every Thursday evening from 8.00 p.m. until around 10.00 p.m. We draw up a meeting programme for a ‘term’, spring, summer and autumn (no winter for us!) which sets out our intentions for a four month period. I say ‘intentions’ because our plans can easily be overtaken by events – the need for specific prayer, whole church meetings and other opportunities.
Each member volunteers to host one or two evenings at their home; this spreads the hosting role and in any case it’s good to share the prayer around. Our programme usually includes a study plan (currently it’s a Prophecy Study Course), Life Groups Together, social events including meals, breaking bread. We aim to support all church activities such as Messy Church, the Alpha Course, Sunday refreshments and Life Groups Together.

We aim to have time each week to catch up with one another with what’s happening without becoming just a ‘talking shop’. There’s always time to share birthdays, holidays, family events, etc.
A key feature of our time together is prayer, for one another and for friends & family. Our programme is only a framework to give the group some structure; it is not followed slavishly if there are other needs..
