Ideas for Lent: Home Groups

Many churches run successful Home Groups during the week to encourage and build mini faith communities. A small group of people meet and get to know each other over a cup of tea/ coffee and a biscuit. 

They then spend a little time reading and reflecting on a short passage from the Bible which has been prepared for all the Home Groups. Finally, they spend some time praying together. We would like to try setting up a couple of Home groups during Lent to try them and see if it is something our Parish could develop. We would need: 1) Hosts – Could you spare a couple of hours one evening a week, open your home to a small group of parishioners and provide simple refreshments – tea/coffee and a biscuit? 2) Leaders (This does not have to be the Host- but it can be)- to gently direct the evening- including the short Bible Study – You don’t have to be an expert! 3) Guests – Are you interested in going along to a Home Group and give it a try during Lent? If you are interested in any of these three roles, please speak to Alex Parker or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
