THIS PORTFOLIO HAS THE FOLLOWING MINISTRY GROUPS IN IT:
- Bible study groups
- Companions In Christ groups (Errol & Kay Peace)
The original twenty-eight week Companions in Christ foundational resource grew from a vision long-held by Stephen D. Bryant, editor and publisher of Upper Room Ministries. Stephen’s vision was to see our churches led differently - out of a spiritual formation paradigm. The hope was that as the church was led formationally, we would become the transformed community, the presence of Christ in the world. Being led formationally included spending time together in community, practicing daily habits of personal listening to God, and creating space to listen to God together that would move us to action.
We currently have two active CIC groups. More information at website: http://companionsinchrist.org
- Other Bible Study groups
Mr. Ts’eliso Leballo is leading Bible Study group meeting on a Tuesday evening. He is presently preparing the group for further study by going through the structure and books of the Bible. The other bible study group existing within and outside the Parish is Women of Grace which meets on alternate Wednesday evenings.
- Growing the church
The Alpha Course is open to everyone interested in discovering what Christianity is about. Come, relax, eat, share your thoughts and explore the meaning of life. The Alpha course group usually meets once a week for 10 weeks, and includes a one-day or weekend getaway. At each session, people enjoy great food, laughter and learning in a fun and friendly atmosphere where no question about life or God is seen as too simple or too hostile questions like: Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? St Francis has run Alpha before and the two Companions in Christ groups currently meeting were formed after this Alpha Course.
