St. Mary’s Home Groups
St. Mary’s is a big congregation, and our Home Groups and Pilgrim groups are at the very heart of our life together.
We hope that everyone who wants to get involved at St. Mary’s will join a Home Group, since this is the best environment for growing friendships, studying our faith, and praying & caring for each other …. in effect to be “the Church in miniature”.
Currently we have around 12 Homegroups, each made up of between 6 and 18 people, mostly meeting on a weekly basis in term-time, at a wide variety of times & places around the town. There are also two ‘Pilgrim groups’, meeting to study every Wednesday and Thursday morning in the Leslie Room. These take place from 9.30 am – 10.30 am, with refreshments from 8.30 am, and with a creche.
To join a St. Mary’s Home Group please ask one of the clergy, or visit the Church Office, or simply email the church office by clicking here. We can talk to you about the various groups and help you choose one that suits you. We look forward to getting to know you!
