Growth Groups are for our non-student members and meet during the week in people’s homes. Growth Groups are about helping our members grow in discipleship, as they study the Bible together, pray for one another, and encourage each other as they seek to live and speak for Jesus.
There are various groups meeting in different areas of the city, as well as daytime groups for those who are free at that time. As with all our activities, the focus of the time is studying God’s word together and thinking through the implications for how we think and act as Christian people.
There is also plenty of time for prayer, chat and simply enjoying getting to know one another!
This term our Growth Groups are studying the book of 1 Peter and learning what it means to live for Jesus in our world. It is a book that comforts us with the news that present suffering will soon give way to eternal glory.
City Bible Talks
We run regular talks for our Growth Group members to invite their friends to, called 'City Bible Talks', where we look at questions from the Bible. There is normally a short talk, time for questions, and refreshments provided.
Every year our programme of centrals give all the groups some input on a key aspect of Christian theology, help with a challenging area of Christian life or training on communicating the Christian faith more clearly.
