Home Groups are the mid-week small group gatherings at St John’s.
These small-group gatherings are very much the heart of the Church and Christian community at its most intimate; they are the place where faith is fostered, discipleship encouraged and spiritual wholeness and well-being is nurtured. They are also the place where personal support and prayer ministry is both naturally requested and care offered.
They are the place to get to know each other well, to create new friendships, while at the same time exploring all that it means to be Christian in today’s world and enabling faith through worship, Bible study, sharing together and prayer.
If you’d like to be part of a Home Group and discover for yourself the encouragement of close fellowship with fellow Christians, speak with a member of the clergy after one of the services on Sunday or Tuesday.
Modern Western culture is a culture of comfort. It’s being sold to us everywhere we look. We’re encouraged to do what we want, when we want, with whomever we want. If something is uncomfortable, we want to avoid it at all costs. The Christian faith, though, is just that: uncomfortable. This four-week series, with accompanying home group material, based on Uncomfortable by Brett McCracken, will help people embrace, understand, and see the beauty and hope in the challenging realities of being part of God’s people.
