Community groups are a vital aspect of our church life because, in a church our size, it is sometimes hard to get to know others. In smaller groups, we learn and encourage each other, get to know each other better and care for one another. Usually these groups involve Bible study and prayer, and sometimes food. We encourage all community groups to gather centrally, on the first Wednesday of the month, to meet up and pray together. If you'd like more information please contact the church office for more information.
Various weekday evenings, weekly or fortnightly
These meet in homes around the city and have a mixture of ages and stages.
20s and 30s
Wednesday nights, 7.45pm @ Grosvenor
20s and 30s offers a chance for those in this age group to meet and encourage one another as we read the Bible, pray for each other, and enjoy some light refreshments afterwards. This is a great network for getting to know others and to enjoy various social activities together – some planned, some spontaneous.
Saturday morning, 8am @ Grosvenor – once a month
Men of all ages and stages meet for a light breakfast and to discuss a Christian book. A great way to learn from other men and to enjoy friendship and encouragement.
Thursday 3pm @ Grosvenor, once a quarter
Anyone of retirement age is welcome to join us for tea, coffee and homebaking. This is a chance to meet up and to encourage each other. There is usually a short talk from the bible or a presentation on an interesting topic.
POLO (Parents of Little Ones)
The ‘Mums at home group’ is back with the new name POLO. We have now expanded to include Dads too! We will be meeting every Wednesday morning (beginning this Wednesday the 6th October) at 10.15am – 11.45am in Grosvenor Road Baptist Church in the crèche room and outdoor area. Mums, Dads and babies/toddlers are all welcome! It will be a relaxed time with tea, coffee, pastries (served outside!), and toys will be out for the kids to play with! There will be a short devotional time, on gospel principles for parenting, to encourage all the parents there. We also need volunteers to help with tea, coffee and set up! Please contact the office
for more details.
LIFEgroups will be meeting every week at 630pm from mid September. We'll also be having meals together, walks, and lots of other fun! Feel free to drop the office a message if you'd like to hear more or be added to the WhatsApp group. Find out more about activities here.
