Small Groups and Discipleship.

A big thank you to everyone who has filled in a survey for our Hope small groups which has been really helpful in highlighting our current strengths and needs. If you haven’t yet managed to fill it in then please do take a few minutes—it really helps us. For those who don’t have online access we have paper copies available for you to complete today.

Throughout the early part of 2017 we are taking time to consolidate our work and to make sure we have the structures and processes in place as part of laying the foundations to facilitate further growth and the development of small groups will always be central to those foundations and to our vision.
