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.

This term's Pop Up Groups start in the week beginning in April through to July 2017(but check the start date with the group leader)

Man of God

What makes a real man? There is no shortage of role models on offer.  But do they line up with what God wants us to be? The aim of this series of 10 Bible studies is for 21st century men to be set free from the slavery of human expectations, and enabled to live purposefully and confidently for Christ as true men of God.  These Bible studies do not set out to be politically correct; they set out to be faithful to God's word.

Freedom in Christ

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.

Amazing Pop-up for those who hate the idea of groups

Is this you? You'd feel embarrassed in a group. You hate answering questions. You think you don't know anything. You think religion is a private matter. You'd never want to read aloud.  I've been coming to Holy Trinity for years and that suits me fine.  It's too late now, anyhow I don't like going out in the evening.
