This group meets fortnightly on a Monday evening in the home of Iain Luke in Ford.
The group uses both contemporary resources and the Bible to explore the relevance of the Bible's teaching and to apply it to everyday living
Meeting fortnightly on a Thursday evening, this group gets together in each other’s homes to explore and develop our faith in God. Through following a sermon series, use of Bible study guides or other suitable literature, we strive to deepen our
relationship with God and to grow in our love and knowledge of Him, as well as enjoying close fellowship with each other.

The Friday night Home Group meets fortnightly and at present, is made up of women from our three congregations.
We meet in each others' homes to discuss a wide variety of bible-based topics and pray together.
We would be happy to welcome anyone starting out on a journey of faith as well as being able to share the experiences of someone who has travelled further along that road.
The Prayer Circle is a small group of people, eight at present, all dedicated to bringing the needs of others to God in prayer. Our fortnightly meetings – generally on a Monday evening – are very informal and each member of the group takes a turn to lead and host although there is no pressure to do either.
The evening generally begins with a short reflection or reading, or perhaps even an appropriate song or piece of music, followed by a time (around fifteen minutes) of silent, contemplative prayer. We then have a time of open prayer, during which we will pray for the specific needs of others as requested. Often, we are asked to keep these requests confidential, and so they are kept within the ‘circle’.
We pray for as long as the Holy Spirit leads us, no time limit, and these prayer times are often very powerful.
Again, there is no pressure to pray out loud - God will hear your silent prayers!
It goes without saying, that the evening ends with a welcome cuppa!

For the past few years, the Music Group, (or Praise Band or simply ‘band’) have led worship roughly once a month at our TVP Sunday services. We endeavour to introduce new music to the congregation as well as playing older, ‘well-loved’ favourites.
At present we are an enthusiastic band of six, and on occasion, our numbers swell to an equally enthusiastic seven! Currently, we are one cellist, one bass guitarist, one rhythm guitarist, one lead guitarist, one twelve string guitarist, one vocalist and occasionally, we have the great pleasure of having a keyboard player which enhances the musical dynamics.
Infrequently, some of us have even been known to pick up a harmonica, a tin whistle, a banjolele, a ukulele, a tambourine or finger bells! Almost an orchestra! So, if you play any instrument and would like to join our merry band, you would be most welcome!
