HOUSE  GROUPS

Lent Programme 2017

Lent Course - 'Les Miserables'

This year's Lent course will be based on 'Les Miserables'. This epic story by Victor Hugo provides much to reflect upon, covering some of the great themes of faith and life, such as redemption, forgiveness, hope and faith.

Each week we will reflect upon different stages of the story, concluding with a showing of the whole film at St Nicholas on Saturday 8th April at 7.00pm. (You will be welcome to bring refreshments if you wish). In preparation for the course it is advisable to familiarise yourself with the story.

If you are not currently a member of a house group, please sign the list in the porch of the church so we can allocate you to a group that will be convenient for you to attend.

A special group on Sunday afternoons at 4.30pm will be for young people aged 11 - 15.

About House Groups

A House Group, or Study Group, is a small group of about 8 people who meet together in someone’s house, usually once a fortnight, either in the day or in the evening midweek to learn more about their faith.  Many people attend one of these groups and find the experience enriches their lives as they study the Bible, share their thoughts and experiences together and pray and support each other. Here is one comment:

“I believe that house groups are one of the most important facilities that a church can provide.  They give strength to the community, they encourage hospitality and inclusiveness. They also give people a safe space to voice their thoughts and things that maybe they don’t understand but would never admit anywhere else!”

During Lent we also try to run some extra day and evening house groups to study a 5 week course.

For more information or to join a group please contact Heather Argent, the house group co-ordinator, hargent@talktalk.net
