What exactly is a House Group?

Good question! House Groups provide an opportunity to ask questions, to seek more of God and to enable each other to grow in faith, love, trust, and gain a greater understanding of Christ.

They provide a place to meet with other Christians in a relaxed atmosphere sharing in worship, fellowship, Bible Study and prayer. They are like an extension of church.

 

Who can come to a House Group?

House Groups are open to all, no-one is excluded! They are open to people who do not know God as well as more experienced Christians, young and old alike.

 

What happens at a House Group?

All-sorts!! Just come as you are! House groups are a place to develop and deepen friendships providing a place to grow and support each other and to seek God more in our lives. From Bible study and prayer to worship and testimony (and also including food), there is something for everyone.

In some cases Groups take a book of the Bible, or a character, and study it. If a question comes to mind a house group is the place to ask it, perhaps a question you’ve never had answered up to now.

At house groups there is opportunity to pray for each other and the world. This becomes an important part of the house groups. House Groups offer the chance to make new friends.

 

Why should I go to a House Group?

I hear you ask, “I’m quite comfortable where I am, thank you,” but it is always good to learn new things and to share our stories with others, whilst making new friends. A house group will deepen your faith and enable you to grow.

 

Are the groups just for members of the Methodist Church?

No! We currently have members of other churches, so they really are open for everyone!

 

“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT)
