Several small groups meet in various homes. They each have different characteristics and formats. Such groups not only give people the chance to meet for Bible study and general discussion, but also allow us to get to know others who would otherwise be just familiar faces on Sundays. Groups can offer a valuable opportunity for friendship and mutual support. They meet monthly, or sometimes, more frequently. Examples of two such groups are:
The Agape group meets on the last Thursday afternoon of the month at 2.30pm in the Minster coffee shop, studying various books of the bible. The sessions are informal, lasting for about an hour.
In January 2023 a new group is forming which will meet in the Minster coffee shop on a Monday morning at 10.30am.
A part of each group’s success is meeting in relatively small numbers, thus enabling members to really get to know each other. This does mean that numbers in each group are sometimes limited, both to maintain a good group dynamic and to fit in with the size of the home they meet in. So, whether newly arrived in Taunton, or a long-standing worshipper, if you’d like to explore becoming part of a home group, please contact Julia Trigg, Home Groups Co-ordinator, and she will gladly guide you to an available group. You can contact Julia via the Benefice Office.
