Out of the group that was meeting in Stainburn, Workington we have created 2 new groups.
One of these has focused around helping each other achieve goals over a year. These goals are anything from fitness, to learning a skill, becoming better at sharing your faith. As long as the goals are achievable for the person over a year and progress can be measured it can be chosen.
The bible study we do is then focused around these goals, helping us apply the word to our lives. As a group we help each other plan out in small steps how to meet our goals, when we fail, we encourage.
So far it is a work in progress, we haven’t completely worked everything out, but it has had the effect of focusing us.
The group will soon be moving to Woodhouse from Workington, which will be our first small group meeting on the estate.
