Debenham 10 Month Groups
Welcome to the list of Debenham 10 Month Groups, we believe that life is better connected and we’d love you to sign up to the groups below…
When: Tuesday, 7:30 – 9:00pm (weekly)
Where: Stonham Aspal
What: For women only! This group is for new Christians or those wanting to go over the basics of belief. It is intended as a next step from Alpha as well as a refresher course for those returning to faith. We will explore what it means to pray, engage with the Bible and make faith meaningful in our lives. Over the course of the year, we will watch the Prayer Course (from HTB), read Velvet Elvis, and use a variety of other materials in order to encourage a robust, exciting faith.
When: Tuesdays, 7:30 – 9:30pm (weekly)
What: This is our first time as group leaders. We will be hosting a group within Debenham, to study, discuss material & resources put together for 10 month groups. Topics can be discussed & decided as a group. We would like to be a place where friendships are made, where we can encourage each other in faith and our relationship with God, whilst also having fun together as we meet up for regular socials.
When: Tuesdays, 7:30 (weekly)
Where: Old Newton
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.
When: Wednesdays, 7:45pm (weekly)
What: Our group is built on the principle of building a strong, supportive community, where each member is valued and encouraged to participate in group evenings. We explore God’s word together using a variety of resources and media, spend time praying together and enjoying each other’s company, with lots of social activities. You will find a very warm welcome if you would like to spend time with this group. We meet once a week, with breaks for school holidays.
When: Tuesdays, 7:30 – 9:30pm (weekly)
What: I am a young-at-heart grandmother (whose lasagne is legendary!) 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, dive into the Bible together and in the process we’ll learn and grow.
When: Wednesday, 10:30am-12:00pm (weekly)
Where: Debenham (Framlingham side)
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.
When: Thursday, 9:30-11:30am (weekly)
What: I am a 44 year old, squishy round the edges mother of two teenage boys & wife to Tony. I have tried to lose weight and get fit the conventional way but lack of motivations means I struggle! I’m looking for people who want to improve their fitness and lose a few pounds while learning what God has to say about looking after ourselves and others. Perhaps we could walk, swim or even try ‘Couch to 5km’ – We will decide together, support each other and built friendships, laughter and a more healthy lifestyle along the way.
When: Thursdays 8:00 – 9:30pm (fortnightly)
Where: Debenham area
What: We will usually focus on a Bible study of some sort to help us grow in our relationship with the Lord, whilst giving time to praying together and socialising to help us deepen our relationships with each other. We will also try to involve ourselves, as a group, with the #ForDebenham days and other opportunities to connect with the community around us.
When: Thursday 8pm (weekly)
Where: Wickham Skeith (but willing to travel)
What: We hope you will join our group for a time of friendship, learning, growing, fun and outreach. We are planning to meet each week, initially at our home in Wickham Skeith but if others in the group are willing to host or lead we would love to meet in your home from time to time. 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!
When: Second Monday of each month (2:30pm – 4:30pm)
What: (Very) Amateur Creative Writing and Creative Prayer Group. For anyone interested in creative writing, whether it’s blogging, poetry, fiction, non fiction, insightful journaling, etc. Also people interested in 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.
When: Wednesday 8pm (weekly)
Where: Framlingham area
What: Why not connect with others that want to encourage & support one another? This is a group where all members are fully involved in group hosting, leading and planning. Each week we will get together and reflect on Sunday’s teaching.
We’ll arrange a time in August to get together in a pub garden to plan the coming term.
When: Thursday 7:30pm (weekly)
What: Andrew and Claire share a passion for worship, hosting and hospitality; we love opening up our home and cooking for others! Nothing makes us happier than sharing good food, building strong friendships and growing in faith. A typical evening will involve singing together, eating together (sometimes a full meal, sometimes just homemade cake!) and learning more about God – together!
When: Wednesday 8:00 – 9:30pm (weekly)
What: A group meeting in term-time for those with a passion and heart for Framlingham and surrounding villages. Creating an environment where we can grow and develop with our faith and friendships, seeking to follow Jesus through sharing his word together and with our communities.
When: Monday, 10am – 12pm (weekly)
Where: Mendlesham every other week, and then other peoples homes.
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.
