Groups and Courses



There are many Bible study groups held in homes in the evening and during the day.  The groups provide a great opportunity for discussion and participation without any pressure on members to say anything unless they wish.  Home Bible Study Groups provide a wonderful support network as people pray for one another as well as growing in their knowledge of Christ. Contact the office for details of groups.
