From home-based weekly bible study groups to the church football team, ladies and men’s groups and more, our small groups meet a whole range of needs.
We believe in building community within our larger church family.
In a larger church it’s often possible to feel quite distant and struggle to get to know people in a more meaningful way. Small groups give you opportunity to change that – meeting folks your age or with similar interests, for fellowship or spiritual support, for example.
Sofa, so good...!
House groups provide great environments to share life and dig into God’s word – we recommend them highly. Some groups even have chocolate biscuits!
It can be hard to get to know people at a Sunday service. Meeting in people’s homes to read, study, pray, laugh, debate and share is ideal for growing faith & making lasting friendships.
For a recommendation of a house group to join please just call or email the church office and they’ll happily put you in touch with a group leader who can give you specific details. Our groups tend to meet on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings in different areas of the city.
Our bright and active community of over 50s don’t sit still for long! Pop along for fun and fellowship.
You might wonder how we spend our time together at a Livewires meeting. We are delighted to have an interesting and varied programme each year. In recent years we have enjoyed speakers such as Dawn Getley (schools work), Mike Law (Christian Resources Project), and presentations on Remembrance in the Forces and Christian Praise Down The Ages. A Film afternoon included an episode of Dad's Army. We have gone on visits to the Synagogue and to the Naval Dockyard. We hold an annual Maundy Thursday service, as well as an annual Christmas Lunch. And our annual summer outing is always popular - in the past few years we have visited Trago Mills, Dartmoor, and Dingles Steam Fairground.
A group for older people? Try telling the Live Wires group that!
