Home Groups

What are Home Groups ?


Home group imageHome Groups are formed of church members and their friends who wish to come together to study God's word and to grow in understanding of being disciples of Jesus.  They bring learning, laughter, challenge, celebration, prayer and support as they meet together.

 

Groups meet in church member's homes and are open to all.  Their aim is to be warm, loving and un-pressured fellowships where everyone has the opportunity to ask questions, suggest response and share their thoughts based on their own experiences, in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

 

Each Home Group is unique and has its own identity and ways of doing things - no two groups are the same !
 

What are Home Groups for ?
 

Groups normally meet weekly with the aim of growing:

  • by nurture:
allowing God to change lives through Bible study, empowering each of us to identify and use our God-given gifts for the benefit of church and world
  • by prayer  and worship:

praising and honouring God together and responding to his love with thankfulness

  • in community:

building the body of Christ through shared commitment, intercession and fellowship.

  • by mission:

learning how to share the good news of Christ's love with others and working together to extend God's kingdom in the Parish of Rushen and beyond
