Everyone is encouraged to join a home group. There are 2 small informal groups running at present. These provide a setting for Bible study, discussion, prayer and friendship. One meets fortnightly in the evening, the other weekly during the day. You're welcome to join any time during the year, or just come along to a group for a "taster". Contact Nick Cox to find out more on 01626 890631.

 

What is this group?

 

The group has been meeting for at least five years, with the common interest to explore and understand more about God's Word through discussion of the scriptures.

 

Who are we?

 

We are all members of All Saints Church, Kenton. There are usually eight or more of us in the group and we welcome anyone who would like to take part. People have come and gone over the years due to changes in their lives, moving out of the area or other pressures of their home/working life.

 

Is it very serious?

 

We are very informal and we don't expect any study in preparation for our evenings. Meetings are very relaxed and discussion very diverse loosely based upon a study book, but ranging across interpretations of scripture, its meanings and relationship to our lives today. Everyone’s viewpoints are encouraged. We have a lot of fun and always find that we are learning from each other’s insights. Time passes very quickly!

 

What is achieved?

 

We have a shared understanding of the passage explored which helps to understand a greater depth when we hear it later read in church. We have a better understanding of each other’s experience of life and the relationship to our faith. We understand that we have common weaknesses and doubts and understand how these are confronted, each in our own way.

 

What have you studied this year?

 

This year we have been using “Instant Bible Studies for Small Groups”, 35 Easy to Use studies. These focus on a particular aspect e.g. God's Word and with a few Bible verses ask questions that promote discussion.

 

Where and when do we meet?

 

We meet in someone's home, chosen to provide the best option that suits everyone. Where someone has not been very mobile we have used their home or where there is a need to care for children, then we have changed venue to include them. We meet fortnightly on Monday evenings starting at 8:00pm and finishing around 10:00 depending on how engrossed we become. We usually correspond by email to confirm the arrangements.
