Fellowship Groups at St. Wilfrid’s

We have a number of small groups at St. Wilfrid’s

All are opportunities to make friends, find fellowship, pray, and learn from God’s word in a relaxed way. This is vital if we are to be a church that grows and cares for each other as best we can.

They are called Fellowship Groups because we want them to be more than just bible study but about warm friendship with the Lord and each other. Fellowship Groups- hopefully places where people can find encouragement and support- to care for each other and ‘spur’ each other on in the faith.

Here are the current groups we have:

At St. Wilfrid’s we currently have four  Fellowship Groups (some weekly, some fortnightly

We’d love everyone to be part of a group.

If you’d like to join one (or have ideas for a group at another day/time), or simply want to find out a bit more do let us know.

We also run one-off small groups including Evangelism Training, an Old Testament Overview, and Christianity Explained- a down to earth look at the Christian  basics.

Bell Ringing

Bell ringing is a unique, traditional hobby which has been practiced throughout the British Isles for over 400 years. lt is a team activity which can be great fun and provides a service to the Church; ringing for Sunday services, weddings, etc.

Ringing provides a healthy exercise which can be mental as well as physical. You don’t need to be big and strong, it helps if you have a sense of rhythm and reasonable coordination, you don’t have to be a musician.

If you would like to try bell ringing it will involve a weekly commitment – practices are usually on Monday evenings at 7.30 and you must be over 18 years of age and able to climb the 54 tower steps to the ringing chamber.
