Home Groups

Learning and growing together.

We hope that the sermons every Sunday morning are thoughtful and challenging. For some people, especially at certain times in their life, that is enough; for other people, they feel they want to go deeper into their faith.

Here are some possible ways you can find more.

Home Groups

We have a few home groups and are hoping for more. This is when a group of between three and eight people get together at someone’s house, once a week or perhaps once a fortnight, usually to look at the Bible together. If you would like to get involved, contact the parish office and they will pass on your enquiry to one of our Home Groups coordinators.

The Rough Guide to Christianity

From time to time, we offer a course across eight evenings which is an overview of the Christian faith that assumes absolutely no prior knowledge. It covers questions such as:

  • What can we know about Jesus’ life?
  • What can we know about Jesus’ death and resurrection?
  • What is the Bible?
  • What is the Church?
  • How can I pray?
  • How can I think about God?
  • What are the consequences of being a Christian?

No question is disallowed; no answer is dismissed. We think through things together.

The next course starts on Tuesday 20th September, 2016.

Contact the vicar to find out more.

Oh no, not Paul again…!

This is a course for people who may want to dig a bit deeper into their faith. St Paul often gets a bad press (some of it justified!), but what did he really say? This course looks at Paul’s letter to the Philippians and is aimed at people who have perhaps come to church for a while and heard some excerpts from Paul’s letters read out in church but do not know quite what to make of him. This starts at the end of November. Janice Price will be leading this, but you can contact the parish office for more details.

 

Pilgrim

The Church of England is using a new course called ‘Pilgrim’ as a way of beginning the Christian faith. We hope to use this material in the New Year

 

Lent Courses

Each year, members of our church and of other churches around Surbiton and Tolworth get together to follow a ‘Lent course’. Sometimes, this is based on a book; sometimes on a film. This involves committing to five sessions over the course of Lent to deepen your faith.
