Benefice Fellowship Groups

We have a number of Fellowship Groups which provide an important opportunity to gather in small groups to share fellowship, to explore Christian faith and prayer, to build community and to offer support and nurture friendships.

Fellowship Groups can engage with issues of faith and justice through prayer, education and dialogue.

The Fellowship Groups recognize that Christians are called to unity in the Body of Christ and to share in the mission of His Church; they seek to enable each other to integrate Christian faith and sharing into daily living. They meet at varied times, at varied venues, and with varied regularity.
