St Paul's Discussion Group

Home Groups

St Paul's home group offers participants an opportunity to study various aspects of theology, religion, social issues and the Bible and their relevance to modern life.

They are a delightful way of offering hospitality and sharing hospitality. They can also give us a chance to meet regularly to look at questions of faith and to share our unfolding Christian journey. Please consider inviting a few to meet regularly - maybe over bread & soup to keep the catering simple.

Various groups continue growing out of one-off study groups like Lenten or Advent discussions


They also offer an opportunity for the members to develop close friendships. One home group (called the Hilton Home Group, though few us of us acually live there!) at St Paul's has met every Friday night since Lent 2007. Participants bring food to share at 7pm. We catch up with each other's lives, then continue an exploration of the discussion topic.

In 2008 we have considered the notion of poverty as outlined in St Luke, and then Phillip Yancy's, What's so Amazing About Grace?, prayed and read next week's readings.

In 2009 we read through the Book of Acts. Then in the latter part of 2009, Home Group considered what Faith and Finance: Christians and the Economic Crisis from Sojourners

2010 we have been presenting differnet passions: exploring different ways to come to prayer, Joy in Christian journey, what is the Kingdom of God, and even had a laughter session!

We also have projects together like helping with the Fair. You are welcome to join in at any time.


Other discussions are continued on St Paul's on-line Discussion Forum, and participants are invited to join this chat room as well.
