What we do
For six weeks in Lent and before Advent, small communities meet to become familiar with the Word of God and are nourished by it. Praying and sharing as a small group is a different experience to Mass or praying alone. People who have participated in the past agree that the experience is rewarding and positive.
When and where
Some meetings take place in private homes, where members can relax and enjoy refreshments and social time. Other groups use parish meeting rooms. The time depends on the group, for example parents looking after young children may wish to meet on a weekday morning; office workers may wish to meet in the late evening or at the weekend. Convenience and comfort are important to building a sense of community.
What we need
There are four groups in the parish, all of which are full. We need additional groups – members, hosts, group leaders. Resources and advice are available – all you need is enthusiasm!
