Growth Groups from September
Growth Groups are a brilliant setting for us to get to know each other, grow in our knowledge of God's word and pray together. September is a great time to join a group if you are not already in one. Our longing is that each person at St Mary's who can be, will be part of a group, not only for our own growth but also so we can spur others on. We have a number of Growth Groups meeting weekly at different times. Most groups meet in the evenings in homes around town. Other groups meet in the daytime, some at St Mary's and some in homes. We have daytime groups for women, for men and a mixed daytime group. Two other groups meet on Monday evenings at St Mary's. Christianity Explored lasts one term and is a great introduction to the Christian faith. Christian Foundations lasts a year and explores what it means to follow Jesus. If you have any questions or would like to try a group speak to your Congregation Leader, alternatively for the 9:15am and 11am Congregations complete the Growth Groups form you will find in the foyer.
