Home Groups allow members of the congregation to study parts of the Bible or elements of the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal setting. The groups choose their own topics to discuss and are supported by the Cathedral clergy with occasional visits and teaching. They meet throughout the year in the informal setting of individuals’ homes or a room at the Cathedral and each group has anything between four to twelve members. Some groups meet in the mornings, others in the evening; weekly, fortnightly or monthly – there is a day and time to suit everyone. Currently, there are over 100 people in 10 regular Home Groups and more starting soon!

Key benefits include:

  • A comfortable environment in which to get to know other members of the congregation
  • Spiritual growth with the opportunity to discuss the scriptures
  • The discipline of regular Bible study
  • Fun and mutual support

The principles all members of the groups seek to follow are:

  • We are all on a journey and nobody knows all the answers
  • We respect each other’s views
  • We express our own opinions with generosity and gentleness
  • We give space for all to share their thoughts or remain silent, as each individual chooses;
  • We respect the confidentiality of any personal information that is shared.
