POPUP Groups

POP-UP Groups 2017

What is a Pop-Up group?

A Pop-Up group is a short-term small-group that meets for about 12 weeks to try something new while exploring a fresh aspect of the Christian faith.  

Pop-Up groups are all about variety. Naturally, every Pop-Up group will involve the Bible, discussion and prayer in some way.

Some groups will do in-depth bible study, others will be based around a hobby or activity, like a book club or crafts or board games or sport of some kind.

Others might be about serving the church or the community in some way or just spending time together socially. There are loads of possibilities.

Pop-Up groups are also a great way to make new friends, to try something new, learn a new skill, get out in the community and to grow in your faith.

What happens when the Pop-Up group finishes?

Everyone takes a break for about a month and then signs up for another one, if they want to.

Pop-Up groups will generally break at Easter, Summer and Christmas.  These breaks come either at naturally busy times in the church - when lots is already happening - or during the holidays when people are away.

How do I join a Pop Up group? 

Take a look at the list of Pop-Up groups on offer in this leaflet.  Choose a group and tick the box of the Pop-Up group you'd like to join.  Put your contact details on the bottom and hand the form to Barbara Leppard who will arrange for the group leader to contact you.  Alternatively speak to the leader of the group you want to join.

If you would like to invite someone along who isn't a church member that's fine, but please ask the group leader first because some groups have limited spaces.

The Autumn term's Pop Up Groups start in the week beginning in 11th September 2017 through to 15th December 2017 (but check the start date with the group leader)


Practicing The Way

This is an opportunity for all the church membership (Christ’s Apprentices) to take part and prepare for the Lord’s transformation of Weston.

This is a series meant to reshape the way we live as followers of Jesus. Becoming an apprentice of Jesus requires that we actively work to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and carry out his Kingdom vision for the world. We want to follow in his steps so closely that we become covered in the dust of our Rabbi. Listen along as we discover how to practice the way of Jesus, together, in Weston.

Freedom in Christ –contact Daron

Through His victory on the cross over sin, death and the devil, Jesus has already set us free. But sometimes we don't feel free! Perhaps we feel "stuck" in habitual sin, negative thoughts, fears, unforgiveness or condemnation. Maybe we are bogged down by the "cares of life". But we do want to grow, mature and bear fruit.  The good news is that when Jesus said that knowing the truth would set us free, he meant it!  This course will help you grasp the amazing truth of your new identity in Christ, teach you to uncover and resist the enemy's deception, and help you move on so that you can become the person God created you to be.

When: Thursday evenings at 7:00 to 9:00pm

Where: The Vicarage
