Community Groups meet in the homes of members of the church across the city, usually twice a month during school term time and new members are always welcome.
In addition to a time of studying the Bible and praying together, Community Groups are also a great place to meet new people from the church. You won't be asked to do anything that you don't feel comfortable with, but you will find them more interactive than church on a Sunday.
There are currently 10 Community Groups in Smithton, which are roughly based on school catchment areas for where people live. Each person in the church has a designated Community Group, which is usually their closest group, but we would encourage you to join a group where you can participate most.
The groups are:
- Balloch Ian MacGillivray
- Cradlehall Scott Lauder
- Westhill Charlie Anderson
- Woodside James MacArthur
- Inshes Bill MacLelland
- Kingsmills Neil Angus
- Inverness South Willie Forbes
(Milton of Leys/Strathnairn)
- Holm Angus Macleod/Alastair Wilson
- Scorguie David Sutherland
- Black Isle Donnie Maclean
You can find out more about the local groups, by sending an e-mail to any of the leaders above.
At the moment we are studying 1 Corinthians using the study book “Challenging Church”. Copies are available from group leaders or reception (£2).
For for more information on the Community Groups you can send an e-mail to Ian MacGillivray, the elder in charge of leading up the Community Group programme.
