Small Groups in Fisherwick
We currently have a number of small groups in Fisherwick and they vary in location, size and style. They all have the same focus: to encourage one another to become more like Jesus and live life to the full (John 10:10). They are a great way to make friends and grow in faith together in Fisherwick.
Peter Scullion coordinates the Small Group ministry. If you’re interested in joining a group please contact the church office for information.
Monday: East Belfast @ 8pm fortnightly-Men’s group
Leaders: Peter Scullion & Paul Hutchinson
Our men’s group meet every other Monday evening in East Belfast and enjoy discussion, good coffee and a wide selection of traybakes. This year we are reading “The Jesus I never knew” by Philip Yancey, tying in with the study of Theology on Sunday evenings. A devotion to follow Christ, a desire to become a better Christian and an appreciation of doughnuts are essential for any potential members.
Tuesday: East Belfast @ 8pm 2nd and 4th week of the month
Leader: Cindy Bennett
We meet in the Stormont area of Belfast. We’re all different ages and we’re not too interested in what football team you support…but we are interested in getting to know each other and have fun while we do so! This year we are delving into the gospels together as a means of encouraging each other to live more like Jesus. All and sundry are welcome!
Tuesday: South Belfast @ 7.30pm monthly
Leaders: Roma Cullen and Desiree Giordano
Tea, coffee and general discussion on topics of faith which we are interested in and encouragement of one another.
Tuesday: At Fisherwick: 8pm termtime
The NET is an informal, student gathering for those who want to discuss and share what they believe. Whether you are exploring the Christian faith or a long-time Christian, come along as we explore what we believe and why we believe it. It is an opportunity to make good friends and grow in your faith over tea and biscuits.
Wednesday: East Belfast@ 7.45 pm – two Wednesdays each month
Leaders: Linda Little and Louise Scullion
Women’s group. We encourage and support each other as we study the bible/ Christian books, discuss, pray and have fun together.
Thursday: South Belfast @ 7.30pm weekly
Leaders: Mark Hayward and Danielle Watson
The focus of our group is on friendship and encouraging each other to follow Jesus. We’re discovering how to live out Christian community and allow our faith to impact the world around us through our daily lives. We often share meals (we love to eat!), pray with each other and study the Bible and Christian literature together.
Thursday: South Belfast @ 7.30pm monthly
Leader: Alan Hewitt
We are a group of older people (average age probably at least in the 60’s) but anyone is welcome. There is always a lively discussion and no shortage of opinions. We tend to follow the teaching series on Sundays, but sometimes have a one-off subject.
Friday: Wilson House @ 11am fortnightly
Leader: Rosemary Wilson
The Friday Morning Group meets alternate Fridays at 11.00 a.m.in Wilson House. Very importantly, the meeting starts with coffee, scones and chat. In the last five years we have studied each of the Gospels in detail often to be puzzled by Jesus’ references to the Old Testament. Thus Michael’s study of the Tabernacle and all its symbolism at the Morning Service is to be our theme for the autumn. As well as study, discussion, challenge and prayer are important parts of our fortnightly meetings.
The Group is made up of about 15 mostly older members of the congregation, both male and female. However the not so old are also very welcome for those free on Friday mornings!
