Home Groups

lectio divinaHome Groups meet fortnightly or monthly in the homes of parishioners for around two hours.  The foundation of the groups is the prayerful study of the Bible using Lectio Divina. 

What is Lectio Divina?

The group reads a passage from Scripture (usually a reading from the following week’s Lectionary), meditates on that reading and contemplates what God is calling each to do or be during the coming week and then the group prays together.

There is a social and pastoral component to the Home Group and individuals find that belonging to a Home Group is very supportive.

If you would be interested in joining a group, please speak with the Vicar for more information: Contact details
