Home Groups

As part of our Christian discipleship at St Giles every member of the church is invited to be part of a small group that meets regularly to study the bible, pray, worship and encourage one another in their faith. Not only is this important to help us grow in the Christian life, it also provides the place where we can be accountable to one another and receive and give pastoral care and support in a way that is not possible within the church as a whole.

Home Groups

Home groups can have up to a dozen members and meet on a regular basis, normally in a home, to study the bible, to worship, to share and pray for one another. Study questions help groups to dig deeper into our Sunday teaching programme. From time to time the whole church is encouraged to study a course together.

All our groups have their own individual ‘flavour’. Some are made up of church members from a particular location; others consist of members of a particular age group. Each group decides themselves what social and outreach activities they want to do.

We would love to link everyone to be part of a small group at St Giles.  We realise that it is only when each and every member of our church gets involved and plays their part that we will see the full outworking and unfolding of our vision in Northampton and further afield. Belonging and contributing in a Home Group is an ideal setting to learn to grow and encourage one another in these challenges.
If you would like someone to help you to find a suitable group you could:

  • Contact any of the Home Group Leaders (contact details on this leaflet ) and arrange to visit (or chat first over coffee).
  • Speak to the Sunday welcome team who will help you to find your way around the advertised groups and introduce you to group members.

If you have any particular questions, email our curate Tim who oversees home groups here at St Giles,  Home Groups
