Church Groups

Attending church on Sunday is very important, but it rarely gives ample opportunity to ask questions, to raise or share problems. This is where ‘Church Groups’ are invaluable. A Church 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 Church 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 Church Group may be just what you are looking for. St Mary's has many meetings in Wargrave throughout the week, for both young people and adults. If you would like to find out more, please email or call 0118 901 6720.
