After Christmas, our parish will continue using the discipleship groups material from the Rebuilt Parish Association. We used these in the Autumn and they were very popular.
The sessions meet in the parish hall, format being:
7.15pm Tea and Cake, gathering in groups around tables;
7.30pm Watch a 15-minute film on as aspect of discipleship;
7.45pm Discuss the film, going through some related questions;
8.15-30pm Adoration in the Church.
There is also a smaller group that meets Thursday mornings in the committee room at 10am.
This is the list of session dates and topics:
'Greater Than' -a series looking at worry in our lives
'Baggage' -a series looking at forgiveness
'Catholic Atheism' -our Lent series
[No meeting on March 26th due the Bible School Weekend 27-29th]
April 2nd [final meeting of series]
These groups aim to:
(1) Offer formation in discipleship, so that we might learn how to follow the Lord better, and learn this together;
(2) Build small group communities, to help us be a community of communities, supporting each other and building each other up.
The films and discussion questions use the discipleship materials from the Rebuilt Parish Association. Our parish enrolled as a 'Rebuilt' parish this summer.
