We hope the group will support and pray for each other as we journey together. Our details are on Church Suite, or please feel free to come and talk to us at church!

emma & richard marsh

Get In Touch

When: Tuesdays, 7:30 (weekly)

Where: Old Newton

Spaces: Ten

What: We want to be a group that focuses on one another, in prayer, care for each other and the community around us. To look at how we as Christians can make the lives of those we come into contact with a better place, so that they ask, what is so different about us? We will aim to do things that will help us know how to answer their questions and introduce them to God.

hazel cameron

Get In Touch

When: Monday, 10am – 12pm (weekly)

Where: Mendlesham every other week, and then other peoples homes.

Spaces: Ten

What: We are a group that want to go deeper with God, whilst we share life, do study, and do craft together.  We will alternate our weeks so that one week we will do study, and the following week we will be doing craft together.  You don’t have to be an expert at either.  This is a place to come together, connect, grow both in knowledge, understanding and relationship with God, whilst also sharing craft projects.

Sue johnson

Get In Touch

When: Tuesdays, 7:30 – 9:30pm (weekly)

Where: Mendlesham

Spaces: Eight

What: I am a young-at-heart grandmother and my passion is to teach and encourage others. This group is for the young of faith, or those wanting a reminder of the foundational truths found in the Bible. We’ll ask questions like, “Who am I? How does God see me?”; “Does God talk to me? How can I hear Him?”; “What is the armour of God and how do I put it on?”; “What are the gifts of the Spirit and how do I use them?”  We’ll often eat together, frequently laugh together,  learn and grow.

Chrissie pignon

Get in Touch

When: Wednesday, 10:30am-12:00pm (weekly)

Where: Debenham (Framlingham side)

Spaces: Fifteen

What: A daytime group for ladies at all stages and ages of life, with a ‘come when you can’ attitude.  We’ll start with coffee and chat, but our time together will include reading the bible, sharing and praying with each other, and each others needs.  It’s a place to be welcomed, loved and encouraged, to listen, share and pray together.  Bring your little ones, come when not at work, retirees; come to enjoy a breathing space and Christian fellowship.

shirley humphrey

Get in Touch

When: Second Monday of each month (2:30pm – 4:30pm)

Where: Gislingham

Spaces: Eleven

What: (Very) Amateur Creative Writing and Creative Prayer Group. For anyone interested in creative writing & creative ways to pray for themselves and for others. This will be about praying in ways that are outside the conventional box. NO great talent for writing or grasp of how to pray is required. This is for anyone with an imagination and desire to write for their own pleasure and who would like to explore going deeper with God in prayer. It will hopefully be a place of encouragement and accessible to those who have never prayed out loud before and are timid about doing so, as well as for seasoned pray-ers.  Fellowship and developing friendships will be a key aim of the group.

Justin & Nicky Smith, Mike & Jane Ryder

When: Wednesday 8pm (weekly)

We’ll arrange a time in August to get together in a pub garden to plan the coming term.
