Short answer: Small groups of people meeting in homes mid-week.
How can we be better Christians? How can we get the friendship and encouragement to keep going we need during the week?
The main way to grow in faith at St. Mary's is through membership of a Home Group which we encourage everyone to join.
This is the setting in which we can share our lives with others and receive the support and encouragement that we need as Christians. In each group we try to get to grips with a book of the Bible or an issue that will help us in our faith or service of God. We pray together (you don’t have to pray out loud) and share any matters of concern.
