Small Church Communities
A Small Church Community (“SCC”) is a group of six to twelve people who meet regularly (weekly, every two weeks or monthly) to explore applying the gospel to all aspects of their lives. Through praying together, reading scripture and sharing faith experiences the SCC develops individual spiritual growth, active involvement in the life of the parish and a desire to carry the Christian message into the wider community. There are also seasonal SCC's for Lent and Advent. Contact: Marion Williams
