Small Groups

“Meeting at church on a Sunday is an important time to get together as a community, receive teaching and fellowship, and worship our God. However, sometimes Sundays can be so busy, and full of different faces, they pass by in a bit of a blur. Sometimes we crave something smaller and more intimate.

Small groups make up the fabric of the church. They are the place where the truest form of authentic biblical community can be fully expressed and worked out. Usually meeting midweek in groups of anything from two to ten, small groups are a chance to create deep friendships, pray and study God’s word in a way that is not possible on a Sunday. They are a place where training and equipping in spiritual gifts can be developed. They are a place where leadership gifts can be encouraged and emerge. They are units where we can engage more meaningfully in mission to those who surround us. Within these groups there is the chance to grow in relationship with God, get to know others and allow others to get to know you. Each group is intentionally different in flavour focussing on the Bible, on prayer or on discipleship itself. This caters for many needs and allows for a focus to make the most of the time together.

 

Do have a look at the groups below and if you are interested please contact the person who is responsible for that group.”

St Ninian’s Walking Group

The Group meets most Wednesdays and once a month on a Saturday. If you want to be kept informed contact Chris and Mary on ccheales@hotmail.com. It is an opportunity to make new friends and keep fit at the same time
> For a long time now we have felt that some people would like to join us for all the fun and fellowship we take for granted, but don’t feel fit enough to take part. With this in mind we hope to start a ‘walkaboutabit’ (a monthly local one mile challenge) that will come eventually under the Paths for All and Arthritis Care initiative ‘Stepping Out’. If you feel you could help with this project please let us know.
> Best wishes,

Hello all
The only rain for weeks last Wednesday found us heading inland to walk up through Ness Glen. It turned out to be a lovely dry day there and a chance to see the ospreys at Loch Doon. This Wednesday 18th July we hope to do a more local walk to take advantage of a low tide and drier paths on the coastal path to Dunure. Starting from Prestwick at 0930 ( meet at St Ninian’s hall, Maryborough Road), the walk is mostly flat on beach, rocky shore line and rough tracks and about 8 miles in length. Return by bus from Dunure, pack lunch and good footwear required. Hope to see you there.
We are suggesting that there should be a cancellation method for the walks should the weather forecast be terrible for the following day. Can we ask that you check
your e-mails after 8pm the day before any walk where we will post a cancellation
or any change of plans. Alternatively you could phone to check on 07954812932Best wishes
Chris & Mary
