Home Groups

Home groups are places to develop and grow your faith, make and develop relationships and find support, encouragement and friendship. Each group has a unique character which is reflected in what they’ve said about themselves. If you’re interested in joining a home group please speak to Pam Wood.

Almond Home Group

“Beware: may contain nuts!”

Tuesday 7.45 pm

Co-ordinator: Dave and Chris Elwin

What is our group like?
  • Its members are what make us special.
  • We love having members who attend every week, but we are also happy to have people who cannot make it so often.
  • We are a bit naughty, a bit fun, but we seek to support each other both in prayer and in more practical ways.
  • We do laugh a bit too!
What does our group (usually) do?
  • Prayer and Bible study
  • As a group we ran the 1st pudding evening, and published the pudding recipe book
  • We drink stuff, and eat things… usually biscuits or cake, but sometimes we start early with soup, or other meals… and puddings, obviously!
  • We try to make our Bible studies, and indeed other discussions, as real as possible
  • Discussions tend to be focused on what we will do as a result of teaching and less on the theory
  • Our discussions are fine for those with lots of knowledge and those starting out
  • Each week we make sure the level is appropriate to the people there and no one is left behind
  • We don't use long words for the sake of it (mostly because none of us know any!)
