Informal, low-key gatherings of
6 to 12 people

The “OmBrom” joint housegroup is an informal, low-key gathering of 6 to 12 people from Ombersley Road and Bromyard Road Methodist Churches which meets weekly in members’ homes. Within an unthreatening environment we share our concerns and pray together; and explore aspects of our Christian faith and discipleship, with the Bible as our guide. Sometimes we study a book of the Bible, or the relevant lectionary readings for the coming Sunday. In Lent we often follow one of the recommended study courses – e.g. York courses; from time to time current issues form the basis for our discussion.

We see housegroups as an essential part of the life of the church community. Our purpose is to support and encourage one another in our Christian pilgrimage, and to seek to discover what God is calling us to do in our different contexts. There is often a global dimension to our discussions as we consider issues of justice and peace.
