Midweek Focus began in November 2016, as an opportunity for members of St John’s with St Mary’s to join together, as the name suggests, to Focus Midweek in love, fellowship, and on God’s word.
Now in it’s 8th month of meeting on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month, from 7pm in the Shill Room, St John’s Centre, it has become a regular feature in our Christian family’s meeting together.
Midweek Focus was never intended to replace other activities, but rather as an extra opportunity for people to meet together, and now on average 20+ people make MF each time it happens.
The evening begins with refreshments, time to chat and catch up, and at 7.30 a time of sharing and praying, followed by sung or said worship. Often there is an interactive Bible study, after which folk break into smaller groups to study and reflect, followed by feedback. A prayer time usually follows based on what we’ve learned from God’s word, with ministry to each other as appropriate.
Midweek Focus is an open group, and everyone is invited to contribute to being part of it. Whether serving refreshments beforehand or leading an evening’s Bible study, all are welcome to be a part of what God is doing in St John’s and St Mary’s midweek.
If you would like to know more, either just come along, or have a word with Dave and Eileen Roper, or the church office 01623 642338. You’ll be made very welcome.
