Pastoral Groups & Courses

Sometimes we need grace and truth around a particular life challenge like brokenness from the past, relationship breakdown or debt. We run a variety of groups addressing specific areas, many of them two or three times a year.

Freedom in Christ

Freedom in Christ is a discipleship group which helps Christians take hold of the truth of who they are in Christ so they can move on to maturity. Topics include: Who am I now? Choosing to believe the Truth, Demolishing Strongholds, Forgiving from the Heart and Walking in Freedom every day.

Freedom in Christ Saturday

On the Freedom in Christ Saturday there is opportunity to receive prayer to help process past events, forgive and receive healing.


The date for our next Freedom in Christ group is still to be confirmed.


£15 for books and lunch on the Freedom in Christ Saturday.

Restored Lives

Restored Lives is a series of six sessions for those who are separated, those who are currently going through a divorce, or those who are already divorced. The course, whilst based on Christian principles, is relevant and helpful for anyone with or without a Christian faith or church background. Restored lives is both practical and supportive, giving any separated or divorced person the opportunity to discuss the challenges they are facing and the tools to deal with these effectively. Topics include: Facing the effects of separation and divorce, Resolving conflict, Divorce the legal issues, Forgiveness and Moving forward with hope.

The Marriage Sessions

‘The Marriage Sessions’ is a new series of four evening, on alternate weeks, designed to help any married couple strengthen their relationship. Each evening consists of desserts and drinks, stories from couples, a practical talk and couple discussion time in a relaxed atmosphere.

The key themes explored in the four sessions are:

  • Cherish – the forgotten vow and how to keep your love alive
  • Connect – understanding each other and the art of communication
  • Collaborate – dealing with pressure points and handling conflict well
  • Commit – love is a choice when the going gets tough

There is no group work and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

The Marriage Sessions replace The Marriage Course that was initially planned for this term.


Our course starts on Wednesday 8th May 2019, 7.30-9.30pm at the Lee site, and runs on 22nd May, 5th June and 19th June.


£40 per couple, which includes light refreshments and drinks each week and all the course materials that you'll need. If you would like to attend the course but the cost is an issue for you, please contact us using the details below and we will do what we can to assist you in joining the course.


Register online or on a Sunday at the Welcome Desk.
