During this Coronavirus outbreak no homegroups are meeting physically but several are still meeting virtually. Sign up to our Grapevine email news for further details.
Attending church on Sunday is very important, but it rarely gives ample opportunity to ask questions, to raise or share problems. This is where ‘Home Groups’ are invaluable. A Home Group is a group of Christians who meet to learn together and from each other, in the more personal and relational setting of someone’s home.
Why join a Home Group?
The groups vary in flavour but the aim is always to grow in the Christian faith, and be encouraged to live out that faith in everyday life. The groups fulfil a very important pastoral role too, in supporting each other through life’s ups and downs by prayer, practical support and friendship.
Maybe you travel to another church, but would like to form friendships with Christians more locally? Maybe you find large gatherings difficult or find Sunday morning church uncomfortable? A Home Group may be just what you are looking for. St Mary's has up to 10 meetings in Wargrave throughout the week, for both young people and adults. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Revd Steve Turville on 0118 901 6720. Current dates of their meetings can be found in The Calendar (under the "What's On" menu).

It is with great delight and thanks to Sheila and David Williams that I can offer us a chance to hold a 'zoom' breakfast on May 2nd at 9.30 in the morning. You will need to provide your own breakfast and coffee......We can start with a bit of sharing about how God has spoken to you at this time and then move on to Nicky who will be joining us from Australia (if all the technology works). She will be able to share more about their trip to Japan and how YWAM is adjusting and changing due to the current crisis.
As David Williams has a business Zoom account we will not be limited to 40 mins so have your questions ready! We will be able to do a virtual handing over of Piggy Fleur and her contents.
We hope that you will be able to join us on the morning.
Sheila will send out an email with the zoom link closer to the time.
With prayers for Gods Blessing to be upon you and your families at this time.
