A growing plant is a good image of what it means to grow as a follower of Jesus. Plants need water, light, and nutrients. As followers of Jesus we don’t just grow spiritually spontaneously - yes God does the growing but some cultivation of the plant is important. Meeting regularly with other Christians to pray, read the Bible, and encourage one another is a key part of cultivating healthy growth in our spiritual lives.
This year at St John’s we are starting up some discipleship groups. These groups will meet weekly to pray, study the Bible, and to encourage each other in faith. These groups will be hosted at different times during the week so there will be lots of options that work with various schedules. The groups will run throughout 2019 finishing up in December and new groups will be formed in 2020. Another component is that monthly these groups will all meet together for a meal and mission activity in our community. If you’re interested in knowing more, and we hope you are, please come along to our interest evening on Wednesday the 20th of February (and if you can’t come but are interested please get in touch with the office).
