Forest & Avon Team
After that we shall join in with the Lent Groups at various venues in the Downton area.Growing Together is an informal discussion group which meets fortnightly on Thursday evenings. Our aim is to explore the Christian faith and relate it to topical issues. We meet in various homes around the village and the meetings are mostly led by members of the group. Everyone has the chance to share their thoughts and ideas if they so wish.
In the past we have used study guides to look at Bible passages, discussed Christian books and thought about the Christian perspective on current events. Sometimes individuals have talked about what they have learned at conferences and study days or shared experiences which have helped spiritual growth.
Everyone is welcome to come along to a meeting please just let the hosts know you will be attending please.
