Life Groups

Living in grace and truth together

In Life Groups we explore and experience what it looks like to follow Jesus in real life.

Usually meeting in people's homes (but currently online due to Covid-19).

We study the Bible, pray, share food, get honest, and seek the presence and power of God together.   

We'd love to welcome you to a Life Group, get in touch to find out more.

Meets alternate Thursday evenings


Garden or Marquee at St Martin's Church

The essence is in the name; the Sanctuary home group meet in friendship to find rest from busy lives and to support each other. We come together in God's love to find a safe place to explore what it means to live our lives as followers of Christ in our world today. We feel passionate about social justice and our care for God's world. We pray for each other and enjoy Bible study and related materials proposed by the church (such as the Lent course on Pete Greig's book on prayer) or our members. Currently exploring and discussing Ruth Valerio's book "Saying yes to life" which looks at global challenges for humanity in the light of Genesis 1.
