There are a number of midweek groups run as part of the Church. The members meet for bible study, prayer & fellowship, though the format of each of the groups varies considerably. We really encourage people to join midweek groups as these are good places to learn about our faith and to enjoy the fellowship & support of other Christians. Below is some information about each of the groups. If you would like to join a group or find out more about the group then please speak with one of the leaders or contact the church office.
For further information please contact the leaders of the groups through the church office: Tel 01562 887287 / e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
1. St Peters Prayer & Bible Study Group
This group meets on the first & third Tuesday of each month at commencing at 7.30pm. We have approx. 30 minutes of prayer with various members leading. Then refreshed with a cup of tea we then have an hour of Bible study and discussion. We have used a number of the “York courses” and have recently done “New World, Old Faith”. We have found this series thought provoking and a good medium for discussion.
2. Quest Group
The group is called Quest because we wanted a name which reflects our thirst for more knowledge about God's Word. We meet on alternate Tuesday evenings at 8pm at the home of Corrinne and Richard Sarjeant, 44 South Road, Norton. We are a Bible Study Group and have relied for some time on teachings by Biblical experts who could give us insights we felt we might never ordinarily come across. Our group currently consists of 7 or 8 people, but we would be delighted if others would come along and join us. We begin each meeting with a coffee followed by a short prayer inviting the Holy Spirit to guide us during the course of the evening. We aim to finish at 9:30pm. If you would like more information on our group please talk to Corrinne Sarjeant.

We put emphasis on studying the bible in some depth; with a good variety of Old & New Testament & themed studies. Most studies are led by Mary or Malcolm Medcraft, Steven Proctor or Alan Sibley.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at Val Pitt’s house. We welcome all women who would like to come and give it a try. We have recently been studying the book of James and Old Testament Characters and have previously used Lifebuilder study booklets to help guide our discussions. We have learnt a lot about the enthusiasm and witness of the early church and found it challenging and relevant to our lives today. Contact via the church office.
