Home groups are no longer able to meet in person due to the pandemic.  However, several groups are continuing their programme via the Internet using Zoom and others are keeping in touch on the 'phone.

Each home group has its own programme and approach to reading the Bible, use of course materials, discussion and prayer. Belonging to a home group helps to nurture faith and to deepen relationships with others, and this is particularly important in a large church such as St Mary’s.

If you are interested in joining a home group or finding out more, please contact the group leader or Alan Currer (see below) to see if there is  availability at this time.
