Here at King’s, we believe that following Jesus happens best when we are actively engaged in other people’s lives. It is in relationship that our faith is truly shaped and nurtured. We hope that our Small Group Programme provides an opportunity to do just that and build community amongst us, helping us to:
: Make New Friends and Deepen Relationships :
: Learn Something New : Grow Closer to God :
Our groups support the vision of the church, which is to share the love of God with both those whom we live and work amongst and with the wider world. For more on our vision, please visit our Home page and scroll down to the ‘Our Vision’ section.
Make New Friends and Deepen Relationships: As we grow in numbers,
small groups help relationships to flourish and everyone to feel that they belong.
Learn Something New: No matter where you are on your faith journey,
we hope there is a place for you.
Grow Closer to God: As we meet, have fun, learn and share our lives together,
we hope that Jesus will become ever more authentic to us all.
We offer groups over a range of venue locations, days of the week and meeting times as well as a number of ongoing and special interest groups. We also have a number of central meetings at the church where all the groups meet together for prayer and worship. Details of the programme for the summer are below.

How do I sign up for a group?

Small Group FAQs
When do the groups start? Unless indicated, groups will start in their usual locations during w/c 23rd April and run for 11 weeks (including 2 Central Prayer & Worship evenings and finishing during w/c 16th July with a Central Meeting) with a break for Half Term during w/c 27th May.
Does everyone have to attend a group? Sundays and Small Groups are the heart of life at King’s, so we would love everyone to be a part of a group.
What am I signing up to? Sign-up is for one term at a time. But for groups to develop friendships and grow in faith together, we encourage everyone to attend each session, if possible, for the weeks the group is running. At the end of the term we recommend that you think about moving on to a new group for the next term, but you also have the option to sign up again if your current group is continuing or to take a break.
What happens after I’ve signed up? The Group Leader will contact you to confirm the details of start date and when and where the group will meet and to welcome you into the group.
Can I join a group part way through the term? Most groups will not be open after the second week so that real friendships can develop, and those that meet in homes may have a maximum capacity and not have spaces available after the sign-up period. We do have other groups, however, that will remain open all term so that new people can get involved at any stage.
Can I join more than one group? You’re free to join more than one group, but we do ask that you make a commitment to attend all the meetings of each group.
I’m interested in leading a group next term. What should I do? Please speak with Paul Thomas or Kathy Nussbaum or email firstname.lastname@example.org about your next steps.
