Many members meet together in small groups for fellowship and support. Groups meet on different days, some during the day some in the evening, either once or twice a month. They are always happy to welcome new members.
Meeting in such groups enables us to:
Phoenix House Group
The Phoenix House group grew out of the ashes of an older house group that ceased meeting, hence the name. We meet at a member’s home for discussion and prayer on Friday evenings on a fortnightly basis. It also offers opportunities for members to develop friendship and offer pastoral support. Subjects for discussion are wide-ranging and have included Bible Studies of Ephesians and Colossians, MRDF’s study on “What does the Bible say about Food?”, recorded material on “A History of Christianity”, “Reverse Missionaries” and “The Preston Passion”. The group is currently doing a study of John’s Gospel, using the Study guide by Tom Wright from the Trinity Library and other sources.
For further information, please contact Joyce Nelson.
The Y-Group is a housegroup that meets on alternative Monday evenings at members' houses. As well as bible studies, we also look at various social and ethical issues and are known for being a friendly group with a passion for social events! New members are always welcome. For further information please contact Helen and Stuart Best.
Friday Bible Study Group
We meet on the first Friday of each month to study the Bible and how it relates to everyday living. We like to work with a study guide alongside the Bible, and are currently reading “Better Together” a York Course on relationships. We also like to use study guides with a CD (DVD) included which lets us listen to and discuss the views of others.
We start our meeting at 10:30 with coffee and a chat. We make a small donation at each meeting which we use to support our chosen charity SOS Children’s Villages. Everyone is most welcome to join us, and you can contact either Peggy Windsor or Margot Craig to check the date and time of our next meeting.
Quest is a group seeking to strengthen their faith by understanding it in terms of today's – as opposed to yesterday’s - knowledge, language and thought processes.
People from other churches, or from none, are welcome to join the group or try the group to see if it fits their needs. The group meets monthly on Saturday mornings at 9.30. If this day/time is inconvenient we would still like to hear from you to consider ways of keeping in touch and sharing insights. Sometimes the group considers particular topics on a one-off basis; sometimes we follow a course for a few months.
Look out for information in the weekly Notices or contact John Craig.
