“Pastorates” are what we call our network of mid-week small groups.
They are the place where we share our lives together with people we are growing to know and love so that we can become stronger Christians whatever we face in our lives. They vary in size (from 5 or 6 to 35 or 36!) and form the primary place for people to build relationships within the church.
They are the first place to go for pastoral care when people need help and we therefore encourage everyone (whether you are a member or not) to be part of one. Most of them meet fortnightly on a Thursday evening but some meet weekly on a Wednesday evening. They may vary a bit in style but will include Bible study and prayer, sharing needs together and having fun together, singing together and caring for one another.
People are normally connected to the group that is geographically nearest to them although sometimes this is not practical.
