MID WEEK GROUPS
We have 5 ‘streams’ that have various study groups throughout the year. The study groups run alongside the academic year. For more info & to find out about the upcoming groups, please pick up a ‘Mid Week Study Groups’ booklet from the Info Point in house.
What Is Wordbuilders?
Wordbuilders is Gateway’s mid week bible study and fellowship meeting. This group focuses on many of the core truths of God’s Word, opening up these truths in a way that makes them relevant and applicable to our lives.
When are the Wordbuilders Meetings?
Every Wednesday from 7.30pm – 9pm.
The meetings start with a time of worship followed by bible study. We then have time for a cuppa together, trying to ensure we finish at 9pm prompt.
EQUIP is our opportunity to act on the apostle Paul’s advice to Timothy to learn about our gifts (2 Timothy 1:6-8), and to study to show ourselves approved in the call of God on our lives (2 Timothy 2:15). Each one of us is given different gifts, abilities and passions. And the church is called to help equip believers in these areas for works of ministry in order to build the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:12).
Through the Equip Focus Group sessions, we will be able to do just that through the in depth study of a wide range of areas (evangelism, prophecy, leadership, pastoral care, altar ministry etc) as well as practical activations where applicable. Equip groups often include home study, which will be essential to fully receive from these groups.
Deeper Life is a Bible study for those who are looking to dig a little deeper into biblical truths. It provides a place where we can explore God’s Word in more depth, and grapple with some of the more challenging topics found in Scripture. Although Deeper Life is teaching driven, it provides interaction and group discussion.
It also has home study projects each week. It is important that members are prepared to commit to this home study, as not doing this work will hinder both yourself and the groups progression on the relevant topics.
Having carefully observed the requests for help and prayer over the years; we have discovered that many of us face common battles.
Our Focus Groups have been specially created to help us ‘focus’ on our marriage, parenting, health, emotional and many other areas of our life. Our Focus Groups give those facing similar situations a support network in each other, as well as an opportunity to meet regularly to study the Word and discuss these issues. Focus groups include home study, which will be essential to fully receive from these groups.
YOUNG ADULTS|STUDY is a focus group for young adults aged 18 – 30, building community with bible study, prayer and support. The study group meets on Wednesday nights after worship in the main Word Builders meeting.
Simon & Rachael Purohit co-ordinate the Young Adults Study group
