The heart of our life together as a church is our time together on Sundays. But in a big church, smaller groups are one of the best ways of getting to know others well.
We run a range of smaller groups for adults during the week to provide opportunities to spend time together, look at the Bible and pray for one another. You’d be welcome to join one. We have groups and activities designed…
Weekly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays
What? We grow most as Christians when we meet regularly together for Bible study, prayer, and mutual encouragement. So we encourage every member of St Peter’s to join a Small Group.
When? Small Groups meet weekly during school term-time either in the daytime or in evenings. On one week each month all our groups gather together for our Prayer Central.
Where? Nearly 20 Small Groups meet across the area in people’s homes—get in touch and we’ll help find a group for you to join.
One-to-one Bible reading
Reading the Bible one-to-one with another Christian helps us grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus. We encourage as many people as possible to be doing this—just get in touch for help to get started.
Usually the third Saturday of the month, 8-9.30am
Seeking to build up men in faith and fellowship, there is a cooked breakfast (for a small charge), followed by a guest speaker.
Usually the second Tuesday of the month (Sep-Jun), 11.30am-2pm
A home-cooked lunch (just £5), with a thought-provoking talk afterwards from a Christian speaker.
Dad's, Babies and Children (DBC)
Usually the first Saturday of the month, 10-11.30am. Please note DBC is not meeting in September.
Play time, craft and a Bible story for children up to school year 1. Coffee and bacon rolls, plus fellowship and mutual support, for the men who look after them!
Tuesdays in school term-time, 9.30-11.15am
After coffee and a short introduction together, we split into groups to read the Bible, pray and get to know one another. A crèche is provided.
