We come together in the C.B. Howard Hall (i.e. the small hall) around 10am for a cuppa and a chat. About 10:20am we divide into small groups where we pray for each other and our concerns. We then spend about an hour working through questions relating to the Bible passage being studied. Each term focuses on a Bible character, a Biblical theme or a book of the Bible.
In the small groups you will encounter God. You will learn about God and his purposes for us by engaging your mind with scripture in active discussion with 6-10 others. The questions are available ahead of time so you can do some preparation. To finish the morning we come together and one of the group leaders gives a brief – 10 minutes – summary of the main points of the study. At the end of each term we share lunch together.
This is a great 2 hours of learning in a relaxed atmosphere, a time to get to know a small group of women who care for each other and have fun together. It is a non-threatening place where a new believer can put some muscle on the bones of their faith, or a person mature in Christ can affirm their faith and learn more and more about living the Christian life.
Once a year (usually in August) women of all ages—some church attenders and some not—come together and enjoy a Saturday breakfast. While we eat we’re all encouraged to share our own perspectives on the day’s topic—a practical life-related issue. Then come two minute talks from a variety of women ranging in age from early twenties up to their eighties, telling about their life experience of the day’s theme. It’s always astonishing to hear gritty honest comments about what it means to be a follower of Jesus dealing with the issue.
Past topics have included:
- Living with integrity – the practical implications;
- Growing older, growing stronger;
- HOPE in a changing world;
- Perseverance in life’s race.
