Home-groups are as important as Sunday worship.

At St Peter’s, Homegroups serve at the heart of the church. This means having a voice in the decision- making process and active participation in working out the church’s ministry and mission. Involvement in a Homegroup is connection with the

heart of the Christian community at St Peter’s.

Distinctive Groups

St Peter’s is a large and diverse church, so it is appropriate that there is variety among the groups. A group consisting of younger adults in their twenties will have a different character to one made up of more senior ladies. That is to be encouraged.

However, all St Peter’s Homegroups share St Peter’s core values and the following is held in common:

  • The Homegroup Leader is appointed and authorised as a leader at St Peter’s and is happy to be accountable in that role.

  • The Homegroup seeks to be active within the church, supporting its vision and working to see it fulfilled.

  • The life and routine of the Homegroup will include:

    • -  Bible application

    • -  Prayer

    • -  Pastoral support

    • -  Evangelistic outreach

    • -  Social activity

    • -  Practical support.

  • The homegroup will model New Testament community life, where all believers take an active role as they explore Christian discipleship and faithfully share their lives and unique gifting.

If you’d like to get involved, just ask at a Sunday service, speak to Katie & Henryk Urban (Homegroup Coordinators) e: katie.urban@stpetersyateley.org.uk or contact the Church Office. We’d love you to connect with this life-building ministry.
