Our Benefice Fellowship Groups provide an important opportunity to gather in small groups to explore Christian faith and prayer, to share fellowship, to build community and to offer support and nurture friendships. Fellowship Groups may do this by engaging together with issues of faith and justice through fellowship, prayer, education and dialogue. The Fellowship Groups recognise that Christians are called to unity in the Body of Christ and to share in the mission of His Church; they seek to enable each other to integrate Christian faith and sharing into daily living. They meet at varied times, at varied venues, and with varied regularity. The list below includes details of the Co-ordinator and for further information, please contact the Benefice Office.
