UNITED REFORMED CHURCH
Study, prayer and fellowship groups
Groups of us meet regularly in people’s homes and on the church premises for fellowship, prayer and study as shown on this page. You will be very welcome to join any of these groups. Contact phone numbers for the group leaders are available from the Church Office.
The following groups are coordinated by Laura Barker
Sunday morning Bible study
This group meets on Sundays at 9:00am in the crèche room focussing on study of the background and meaning for us of a Bible passage, led by a member of the group. Contact Austine Young for more information.
Tuesday afternoon Bible study
A group meets at the home of Campbell and Yvonne McPhee on alternate Tuesdays for Bible study looking at the relevance of Bible teaching to our lives today. Contact Campbell for more information.
Tuesday evening Bible study
A group meets at the home of Steffi Campbell Smith on some Tuesdays for Bible study. We use a variety of source material, some directly related to a section of the Bible and some on more general topics related to church life. Contact Rosemairi Evison for info.
Women’s Bible study
A group meets on Fridays at 9:30am in the Youth Room for Bible study and fellowship. This is a very informal group, and our small size enables us to speak openly in a relaxed atmosphere. Sometimes we do a series studying a Bible book, sometimes we consider a theme. Contact Laura Barker or Maggie Macdonald.
At 9:30am on Wednesdays we meet to pray for personal, local or wider concerns in the Chapel, led by Laura Barker. If you would like prayer for yourself or for someone you know please contact Heather Saint or use our online prayer request form.

Prayers for the persecuted church
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Sunday of most months (check the calendar) in the Youth Room to pray for the persecuted church: our brothers and sisters in Christ who cannot profess their faith or worship without fear of violence or intimidation. We are guided particularly by material from CSW. Contact Austine Young for details.
At 7:45pm on the second Tuesday of each month we meet in the Choir Vestry to watch a film and enjoy fellowship and refreshments. Contact Nigel Dickinson for further information.
On the first Wednesday of each month from October to March we meet in the Tweddle Hall for lunch followed by a talk by an invited speaker. Details in the calendar, or contact Roger Holmes.
TLC: Tea, laughter and chat
On the third Thursday of the month from 2:30 until 4pm we meet in the church for chat, a short feature and tea and cakes. Everyone welcome - young and older people. Contact Jenni Dickinson.
