Housegroups and Prayer Fellowship
On Wednesday evenings at St John's we gather for prayer and Bible study. Some weeks we all join together at Prayer Fellowship, and the rest of the time we meet in smaller Housegroups across the parish.
Our housegroups aim to follow the example of the early church as described in Acts 2.42-47, seeking to be devoted to Scripture, to one other, to meeting together and to evangelism. Here we can study God's Word, pray and care for each other in ways that aren't possible in a large Sunday service.
If you would like to join a housegroup, please talk to one of the ministers in church or contact the Church Office.
Dates for housegroups and prayer fellowship meetings can be found on the home page of this website.
