Small Groups

Midweek Bible studies are the lifeblood of our church, allowing time to explore the Bible and for mutual support and fellowship.

 

Many of our Bible study groups are still meeting via video conference during the period of “social distancing” restrictions.

 

If you’re already in a Bible study group, contact your group leader for more information. They will let you know if your group is meeting by video conference, and help you navigate the transition.

 

Not in a Bible study group? Email office@stjames.info and let us know, and we’ll allocate you to a suitable group.
