We have two regular home groups that meet most pf the year in term time, one on a Monday evening at James and Sue's house and one on a Tuesday evening at Tony and Jacqui's house. We tend to eat together then discuss a passage from the bible or watch a DVD and then discuss the message that was put forward. Discussions are open and honest and those attending range from mature Christians to those that have just come to faith. We then close with prayer for each other and those that we care about.
So please do talk to Jon or Tony if you would like to be apart of one of these evenings. You would be most welcome to join us. There is also a Thursday morning Bible Study group at Bella's house.
We aim to hold 3 or 4 breakfasts on Saturday mornings throughout the year. Apart from a chance to eat a fine full English breakfast and enjoy some time together, the men of St Dunstan’s and their friends get to hear some inspiring and unusual speakers who talk about how Christianity affects their daily lives. They speak for about 25 minutes and then have time for discussion.
Over the last year, we have had speakers from the worlds of sport, politics and business:
We have regular meetings in the Upper room where we try out various crafts. Some with a specific goal in mind and others to try and get to grips with a new skill or just getting craft tips. We have gathered together to make Christmas decorations, lavender bags and many small items to sell at our Christmas fair as well as Easter baskets and soft toys. We are blessed to have quite a few people in the congregation who are skilled at sewing, knitting, crochet, soap making, embroidery, drawing and painting as well as many other skills. The basic format of a typical evening is that everything is provided and set up during the day and the crafters turn up in the evening to make something at their own pace in a relaxed atmosphere with a glass of wine. This is as much a social event as well as trying to achieve something at the end. We have had evenings where somebody in particular will teach a skill such as crochet and are keen to expand this popular area. We have classes coming up in patchworking.
The evenings are open to anyone who would like to get involved and are well attended. So please do come and join us!
