Small Group

All are welcome to our midweek small group, a chance to learn, discuss, laugh and pray together.

Meeting start again on Thursday September 3rd at 2.15 at Dave M. house (39 Eastwood Road) and 7pm at Sheila Astbury’s, (3 Mossbank Way). The afternoon group will meet weekly and the evening group twice a month. Each week will be a different OT or New Testament character and so you are welcome to come when you can. COLLECT A FLYER FROM DAVE OR THE BACK OF THE CHURCH, containing dates and venues etc.

The group is led by church members and all are welcome to contribute, however much or little you think you know. Check this page, Pews News or contact us by email at welcome@oxonchurch.co.uk for dates and venues of forthcoming meetings.

The small group sessions enable group members to get to grips with the bible in a more in-depth way than is possible on Sundays. The focus varies and includes: exploring a biblical theme such as prayer; studying a Christian book together; delving into the Old and New Testament. Here are some members thoughts:

  • I go to the small group because talking honestly to others who have doubts and fears, just like me, has enriched and deepened my faith. Looking in depth at some well known passages like the Lord’s Prayer and the Creed has made look in a new light at what I perhaps took for granted.
  • I feel able to talk about faith more openly and accept me as the human being God created and the me He wants me to be.
  • I come to small group to get to know the church members and my Bible better and so grow in faith and friendship.
  • My faith has grown since I started meeting with others in the Small Group to discuss the Bible. Some things go over my head and I wonder if everyone is getting this, because I’m not! It doesn’t matter if we don’t always `get it’ because the one thing I have learned in the group is that no matter how foolish you may think your question is, nobody laughs or judges you and we all listen to each others’ points of view.
