Church Groups

Our church life is not limited simply to Sundays and our Morning Prayer gatherings each Tuesday and Thursday!

There are a number of groups that regularly meet across the benefice. They include:

Breakfasts       On the first Saturday of each month men’s and women’s breakfasts are held (8.30am – 10.00am). Venues vary from month to month moving from one home to another. Locations and booking details are listed on our What’s On diary.

Film Club       Every other month Sandhurst church opens its doors for a film night. See our What’s On diary.

Friendly Fridays       On the first Friday of each month a coffee morning, open to all and run by the benefice, meets from 10.30am- 12.00pm. No need to book -just come! It meets at Down Hatherley Village Hall, but occasionally moves to a different venue. See our What’s On diary.

Home Groups       Four home groups regularly meet across the benefice, some started as a result of our 2017 alpha course. They all provide an opportunity to meet together and firm up friendships, and to learn and discuss together every aspect of our Christian faith.

Lent course     2019 course has now finished.  Details here.

Messy Church     Messy Church is a time for families of all ages to come along and enjoy making things around a theme from the Bible. We hear a story, sing a song and enjoy a meal together. Messy Church meets in churches and village halls around the Benefice.

Open the Book      We have a group who visit Norton Primary School every week to bring bible stories to life. Details 01452 730150.

Refresh  Do you need some encouragement half way through the week? Rev Philippa and Ian are hosting a monthly time of prayer and worship at 7.30pm on a Wednesday evening at their house, 8 Seabroke Road. It’s called “Refresh” and is a chance to sing some worship songs, pray together, and rest in the presence of God. Everyone is welcome. Tea and coffee provided!
