Attending church on Sunday is very important, but it rarely gives ample opportunity to ask questions, to raise or share problems. This is where ‘Home Groups’ are invaluable. A Home Group is a group of Christians who meet to learn together and from each other, in the more personal and relational setting of someone’s home or online.
Why join a Home Group?
The groups vary in flavour but the aim is always to grow in the Christian faith, and be encouraged to live out that faith in everyday life. The groups fulfil a very important pastoral role too, in supporting each other through life’s ups and downs by prayer, practical support and friendship.
Maybe you travel to another church, but would like to form friendships with Christians more locally? Maybe you find large gatherings difficult or find Sunday morning church uncomfortable? A Home Group may be just what you are looking for. St Mary's has up to 10 meetings in Wargrave throughout the week, for both young people and adults. If you would like to find out more, please or call 0118 901 6720.
Our groups meet regularly throughout the week. Not all are every week, so please check with the group leader as to specific dates.

The group now meets on a Thursday afternoon for a varied programme.
On the first Thursday of each month, we have "Coffee, Cake and Conversation" which includes a short, fun Bible-based activity or quiz.
The second and third weeks will be Bible Studies where we study a topic or book during each term.
The last week each month will be a more informal look at different Bible passages in smaller groups, where we can discuss, listen to each other, and consider what the passage is saying and think about how we might apply it in our lives.
New members are always very welcome to come along and try us out.
