This group has been in existence for over 30 years and the last year has been quite difficult as members have struggled with health and family matters and other commitments on Friday mornings. As a result, we decided to change days and now meet on Tuesdays from 10.30am to 12.00 noon. During Lent we have met at church but will probably revert to meeting in our homes after Easter. Currently we have 6 “regulars” – all mature women, who would welcome anyone who would like to join us.
Besides reading and discussing a bible passage, we try to understand what we can learn and apply to our own spiritual journeys. We also use the group to share any concerns and problems we might have that have arisen in our own lives, through our own daily bible study or in-church teaching. It is amazing how often our chosen bible passage or a related topic is also covered in church or in daily Bible readings, which give fresh insights. Prayer is also an important part of our meeting and we include any issues, situations and people that the Lord lays on our hearts.
If anyone would like to join this daytime group, you would be most welcome. Although we have only had female members, the group is open to anyone – men and women, young and old.
