Nurturing Faith Group

An opportunity to meet together on Zoom to explore a Bible passage in a relaxed atmosphere of fellowship, debate and discussion.  The group normally meets at 11 am on the third Monday of the month. 

Forthcoming dates are Mondays 18th July, 19th September and 17th October when we will continue with the planned series, Who is Christ for us Today?  We will be discussing the ‘I am’ sayings from John’s Gospel, thinking about what they are drawing us to understand about living our faith in the very disturbed and challenging atmosphere of our world in 2022.

Lay preacher Karen Smith leads this group, and distributes notes before the meeting to guide our discussion and give us a starting point to set the context.

It would be helpful if you could read the text beforehand; but do come along even if you haven’t had the chance to do this. Please apply to the church secretary for an invitation if you haven’t received one.

Notes for previous meetings are available here:

Standing in the Sandals of the Prophets

In our 2021 meetings we delved into the ministry of some of the lesser known prophets of the Old Testament. 

As we approached the Advent and Christmas season we started our preparations by visiting the words of the prophet Isaiah.  In October we thought about the ‘Message of Immanuel’ which is found in some of the early chapters in Isaiah. In November we heard more about the ‘Prince of Peace’ by delving into later chapters.
