What is church all about? In fact what is church?
It’s certainly not the building or even the denomination. When the New Testament talks about church it is always referring to Gods people under the Lordship of Jesus Christ living together in fellowship, love and mission.
So how do we do this?
Meeting together for Sunday worship is a start, but the opportunities for sharing at a deep level are pretty limited when you are balancing a cup of tea and a biscuit in a scrum of people.
Personally I have found meeting together with a small number of other Christians on a regular basis has enabled me not only to learn about and appreciate other believers, but also to share at a deep level the things on my heart and to grow in my walk with the Lord.
I would encourage every member of the fellowship to seriously consider joining a home group. If Sunday worship is a priority in your schedule then a weekday home group should be as well. The two complement each other. Sunday services offer corporate worship and teaching, home groups allow you to explore the teaching in more depth and to really get to know your fellow believers so that you can pray for them effectively.
Currently there are three home groups in our fellowship meeting which meet fortnightly under the leadership of Brian Blogg and Robin Ive, Esme Kelly, and Keith and Mary Evans. Their addresses are in the current Messenger magazine.
Seriously think and pray about this. If this is something you would like to commit yourself to, have word with me or any other of the home group leaders. If there are enough people we could even start a new group near you. Keith Evans
