Our parish discipleship groups use videos and material from the Rebuilt Parish Association. We've been using these since Autumn 2019.
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.
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.
Group leaders (paired):
Deacon Jim Brennan & John Sinclair
Maris O'Brien & David/Theresa Soan
Emma Brookes & Fiona Martch
Mia Knight & Veronica Massey
