Within a large church like St Ebbe's, small groups are really important in helping us know and support one another. Fellowship groups meet in homes around (and beyond) the city to study the Bible and to pray together. Groups are tied as much as possible to particular congregations.
Fellowship Groups for members of the 9.45 and 6.30 Congregations
There are a number of groups scattered throughout the city and beyond, in places such as Bicester and Abingdon. For more information or if you would like to join a group, please email Pete Wilkinson. Please see the current term card to find out what we are studying.
If you are a woman who would like to meet with others during the day, you might also be interested in midweek meetings for women.
If you are in your 20s-30s, you might also be interested in Roots.
Fellowship Groups for members of the City Congregation (4.30pm)
‘Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.’ (Matthew 7)
It is our desire to be wise, to be those who hear Jesus's words and put them into practice. We recognise that in life’s busyness we hear God’s word and unintentionally fail to put it into practice.
To help us do this better, City fellowship groups LEARN LESS, WELL. The comma is key!
Each month looks like:
Week 1 - CPM - monthly church prayer meeting
Week 2 - learn less, well. Look back at Sunday's sermon, go deeper and think what next...?
Week 3 - Mission - together seeking to befriend unbelievers, and reach out to them together
Week 4 - learn less, well
If you are a part of City, speak to Matt Pope about joining a fellowship group.
