Home Groups meet in the homes of church members around the city - some weekly, some fortnightly - on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.  Each group decides its own programme, which may include Bible study, discussion topics, shared meals and prayer.  The groups aim to provide friendship and support in a Christian context and are a great way to get to know other church members.  Most groups are open to people of all ages; however, one group, Right Side, is specifically aimed at people in their 20s and 30s.  For further information about the groups, or if you are interested in joining a group, please either talk to Phil Sutton after Sunday Worship or else contact her through the church office.

We keep a Community Emergency Food box which is now situated on the side tables by the Church Kitchen; suitable goods are always welcome.
