Study groups


The Church and Society Group meets monthly, looking at a variety of social issues in the UK and worldwide from a Christian perspective. Discussions often start from a film or TV programme or material from the Joint Public Issues Team (the national interest group within the URC, Methodist and Baptist Churches). The Group is an open group, and we welcome new participants, whether you wish just to attend a discussion of particular interest to you, or whether you would like to attend meetings of the group regularly. Current topics include immigration issues, credit unions, and the post-election fall-out.

The Queens Road Housegroup – so named because it meets in the home of one of our members who lives in Queens Road – meets about once a month to study the Bible (we are currently looking together at the Sermon on the Mount) and to discuss topical matters, but it often deviates onto current events, moral issues and the like.  It is a very informal group and would always be delighted to welcome newcomers. Why not give us a try?  Further details can be obtained from Andrew Sutton.

Emmaus:  The Way of Faith
‘The Emmaus Course: The Way of Faith’ is a nine session programme that aims to help you on your own journey of faith by exploring many of the big questions that Christianity raises.  Aimed primarily at those who are new to the Christian faith; however, depending on numbers, it may also be suitable as a ‘refresher’ course.

The next course will run on request when sessions will include: believing in God, the life and ministry of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, learning to pray, reading the Bible, belonging to the Church, serving the Lord, learning to love, and sharing the faith.
