Nurturing Friendships

Next Sunday, as part of our Altar Ego series, we'll be looking at “Nurturing Friendship”. Over the years our home groups have played an important part in helping us do just that. There's no intention to change that, but we should recognise that 'one size doesn't always fit all' - with some people unable to attend due to other commitments, or perhaps feeling more comfortable sharing in a smaller group, etc. Accordingly, we want to explore additional options that everyone could plug in to if they wish. For example - study groups, men’s groups, women’s groups, triplets, special interest groups, mission groups, discipleship groups, task-oriented groups – you name it! But importantly, groups in which we can further ‘Nurture Friendship’, deepen relationships, provide support and be accountable to one another. If you’re interested in discussing more about this, come along next Monday, 5th March, 7:30pm at the Graig - it would be great to have your input.
