alfred jewel benefice communitySundays are great. But they’re simply not everything the church is about. You down a cup of tea, eat a biscuit and say a brief hello to your friends after a Sunday service but there’s not really time to connect with others.  Small groups are a great opportunity to learn more, to care about each other and to encourage each other.  


Bible Study – Tuesday mornings 10.30am-12 noon 

For those who’ve ever wondered what the Bible has to say about life, love and the Universe? A group that studies themes and books from the Bible and discuss their relevance to all aspects of modern life. Afterwards, there’s time to chat over tea or coffee. Come along and discover God’s word to his people in a relaxed and informal setting? Please ‘phone Joan (01823) 412260 or Val Slacke (01823) 412503 for further details, including venues.
