Groups

We encourage everyone to be part of Pop-Up Church groups as the primary way to stay connected to one another.

Covid-19 has meant that many of the traditional ways of running groups have had to change or stop for the time being. With the exception of Pop-Up Church groups (which are now operating virtually), most of the following groups are suspended until we are clear that we can safely meet again in person and enjoy doing so!
