Small groups are very important to us at St Mary’s.   

As a town centre church we have found that small groups are one of the main ways that people get to know each other as part of the St Mary's family and we have a number of groups where you will find a warm welcome.

We also have some exciting developments with new groups launching very soon.  
To find out more, or to join a small group please contact Eleanor, our Small Group coordinator via the church office.


Short Term Groups

RARE Christians

Time & Place: Wednesday 2nd October to 27th November. 7:45 - 9:30

RARE Christians, the home group that Cathy Nobles will be leading with Jessica Rowlands assisting. It is open to those who have participated in the past Joyskills classes as well as others who have not but want to get involved.

Our gathering together will be similar to what we have been doing in practicing the Joyskills including the journalling we learned. We will be looking at the issues that were raised by the lessons in the Joyskills course on Maturity Matters. With the joyskills we will be looking at how to tackle some of the issues that those lessons raised.

Mike and Ruth plan to come in once a month to lead us in what is called a Momentum Group. It will be another way.

Group Leaders: Adele Connelly & Clive Barrett       

Time & Place: Thursday evenings in various locations around Luton

In our group we like to take time to go deep into the Word, although we also take time to get to know each other, to eat together, to pray for one another, to take an interest in one another’s lives and to worship together.

Our aim in it all is to deepen in our discipleship of Jesus - to enjoy who God is, what he has done, what he is doing and what he wants to continue to do in our lives by the power of his Spirit in us.

Group Leaders: Alison Elliott & Chantal O’Donnell

Time & Place: Fortnightly on Wednesday mornings near L & D Hospital

We believe we need to continue to seek the heights and depths of God’s love. It’s an ongoing journey of discovery for us all.We’re young at heart. We may be limited in some ways, but we can pray, support, listen and encourage – so that’s what we do! We’re ‘family’ to each other and rejoice that we are able to trust one another enough to share honestly our hopes and fears and ‘seeking.’
