Fellowship Group

We meet to discuss, pray and worship about God in a safe, relaxed environment at 7.30pm on the first and third Tuesday of the month

All welcome - see notice sheet for location and contact information

Want to find out more? Here's a little bit of information from Paul who hosts the group with Mel in their home...

We meet to build fellowship with each other and gain an understanding of what God means to each of us. We discuss various topics which have included subjects such as 'the Amour of God', 'what is our soul', 'tough questions about God' and 'how can we show God in our lives everyday'. Its also a time for worship praise and prayer as well as time for sharing our experiences and thoughts in a safe friendly environment. We are looking to continue this year in a similar style and anyone is welcome either to just listen or to contribute and for those who feel they have a gifting to lead a discussion
