Small groups within a church offer the opportunity to get to know each other better and to help each other grow in faith and live the life God has called us to live. We run particular courses in small groups on a regular basis. We also meet in smaller groups for prayer, for particular courses during the year such as Alpha or for reflection in particular seasons such as our Advent / Lent Reflections.
Because of COVID–19 restrictions, these groups currently meet on Zoom rather than in the homes of church members or at the Rectory.
During lock–down, many of us struggled with isolation. And so we have encouraged the formation of small clusters of church members – we call them Care Clusters – who support each other. In this uncertain and changeable climate in particular, we believe that we really need to be rooted in Jesus Christ and his church – and that each of us would benefit from belonging to a small group of people who ‘have our back.’ Care Clusters are groups of three families, three couples or three individuals (or a mixture!) from St John’s who connect with one–another at least every fortnight, with one simple purpose: to support and encourage each other.
If you are part of the church family here and want to be part of a Care Cluster, then please get in touch via the church office.
