We're all different and looking for different things from group life, but we all need community to thrive.
Our groups run on a yearly cycle, from September to July. Below you'll see the different Groups that are currently open for sign-ups. If you'd like to see the full range of our groups including those which are full, click here. If you'd like to be involved in leading or hosting a group, please complete the form at the bottom of the page and Naomi, our Small Groups Co-ordinator, will contact you.
The groups below have spaces for new members and would love to welcome you!
These groups meet weekly or fortnightly. They are relational and social, built around a common activity. This could be watching sport, playing board games, going for a bike ride or something completely different!
Each group is different but the goal is the same: to create space for people to build friendships, to be known. We hope this leads onto natural conversations about life and faith, and that the group becomes a place where its members provide care, support and encouragement to one another.
Here's a list of the current Community Groups that have spaces - click on a group to sign up.
A Connect Group is made up of 8-12 people who commit to meeting regularly to explore topics, study the Bible and pray together. Socials and time serving the community as a group create space to deepen relationships and have fun. The goal is to explore and journey together, growing in your faith and being accountable to one another. Find out more about Connect Groups here.

We have multiple opportunities if you are interested in exploring faith or finding out more about Christianity. Just Looking is a group running this Autumn term in the Library at FBC, and in the Spring term we'll be running Alpha.
