Participating in a Bible Study group is a great way to grow in the Christian faith in relationship with other believers. These small groups meet in various locations during the week to study God’s Word, pray for each other, and provide fellowship and support.

There are a range of groups that meet at different nights of the week. Some are men only or women only, others are mixed. Most are in homes but some also meet at the church. They meet weekly during school terms.

As a church we make our bible study materials freely available for other churches and individual Christians to use in deepening their understanding of the Word of God and encouraging growth in Christian maturity and community life.
