Home Group - Pray-ers bear fruit

The Home Group

We extend a warm, open invitation to share prayer and fellowship; encouraging one another’s walk of faith, to know God more clearly, love him more dearly and follow him more nearly, day by day.

Meeting on Mondays, from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

God bless,
Laura, Ken and Dawn.

As a new member to St Mary Magdalen, another member invited me to join the home group on a Monday. As soon as I arrived at Ken, Laura and Dawn’s house, I was aware of the warm, welcoming atmosphere, and felt accepted by everyone there. The group is often informal, with lively discussions and films, but there are also times when the focus is on quiet prayer and reflection, especially powerful in a group. For me it has been a wonderful support to general worship.

From a Parish Magazine...

We praise God for blessing us with the continued opportunity and enjoyment of hosting The Home Group. Amid our “Month of Monday’s” inaugural year the concept has developed thus:

Beginning and ending our evenings in prayer, each new duodenary segment of the year is distinguished with “Listening prayer”, emanating from our Lent offerings, as detailed in our April magazine article (which is available at the church website).

During our second Monday of the month we incorporate visual stimulus via DVD technology, presently derived from Testament: The Bible in Animation, a 1996 Emmy award winning series of nine unique thirty minute animated versions of some Old Testament events and characters, produced by Sianel 4 Cymru (Welsh).

Back in 1996 we thoroughly enjoyed, and still do, each eagerly awaited weekly instalment, watching as a family altogether and recording for play back over and over and over... The whole series is available on YouTube.

The third and fourth Monday’s include Bible studies and topical Christian discussions.

When there’s a fifth Monday in the month, it’s celebration time, “Yay”.

The outline remains flexible and malleable, giving God the opportunity to lead and direct us through the promptings of His Holy Spirit.

A Prayer For You:

God bless you in the morning with His presence shining bright,
And make your whole day happy with His radiant love and light...
God bless you in the evening
when the daytime hours depart,
And, like a benediction,
leave His peace upon your heart.
Amen.

Meetings every Monday, from 6pm - 8pm

God bless.
Love Laura, Ken and Dawn.
