Discipleship refers to the ways we meet the God of Jesus Christ and seek transformation by the Holy Spirit to become more like Christ each day.
We offer food for the soul in our annual Lent study course, the small groups that follow our Wednesday night Bread for the World service, in our regular meditation group and regular silent retreats, and in Great Sacred Music on Thursdays. Specific attention is also given to nurturing the spirituality of our children.
There is food for the mind in our Autumn Lecture Series and our Theology Group on Sundays. There are Study Groups for all ages, Bible Study Small Groups, a Children’s Club, Confirmation Classes each year, and many other workshops, seminars and events. There is fellowship and companionship in our Open Circle, Archers, and Club Wednesday gatherings, and in the creative sharing of our Artists’and Craftspeople’s group. The parish away day and parish weekend are times when all aspects of discipleship come together in wonderful ways.
Giving money is part of belonging. Many people at St Martin’s regard participating in the congregational giving scheme as an integral part of their discipleship. See here about how to make a regular contribution to our church.
The clergy are always happy to meet individually with anyone seeking discernment, guidance, or a listening ear. Our lay chaplains are in church on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10.30am-12.00noon.
