Small Groups

Growing together in faith.

We have various small groups that that share their lives and grow together in faith. Some groups take a break during the summer months. Please be in touch with the contact person if you would like more information about a group. 

Information updated January 2021


A small group that meets every other Monday evening in the Crypt Cafe at the church. They use a variety of sources for the study of Scripture and conclude with prayer. This group is intentionally limited in size.

Bibles and Bagels

A small group of women that, during the pandemic, meets over Zoom at 8.30 AM every Saturday morning, for "lectio divina" of one of the scripture readings for Sunday, and for confidential prayer. People are welcome to join us anytime!    We used to meet at the church for friendship, bagels and bible conversation.

“Deck Church” is a group for St John’s members in South Kirkendall.  

We meet every Monday from 6.30 till 7.30, presently on zoom—until we can go back to meeting on one another’s decks! We pray the ancient end-of-the-day service of Compline (we each have a copy of the booklet), share what’s going on in our lives, and pray for each other. If you would like to organise a similar group for folk in your neighbourhood, contact John Bowen.
