Many people at Stirling Baptist have found being part of a small group to be a huge blessing. They are a setting in which you can build lasting friendships and grow spiritually.
We have all kinds of groups: groups which meet for breakfast in the town centre, groups which meet in people’s homes throughout the week, groups for teenagers & students right through to groups for those of retirement age. There are groups who meet together in each of our local regions so there is probably at least one close to you.
We’d love to help you find a small group so if you’d like more information about groups that might work for you then feel free to email [email protected]
There are also groups which meet together over a joint interest. Some examples of these are:
The Book Club meets at 7.45pm every couple of months on the middle floor in church. It's very informal and always includes coffee and cake. We have read a wide variety of Christian books from authors like Philip Yancy, Richard Rohr and many others. Sometimes a title attracts e.g. ‘I wish Jesus hadn't said that’ ; other times, someone recommends a title they would like us to discuss.
Sometimes, we don't like a book or disagree strongly with its ideas.
Mostly, we find them thought provoking and find ourselves reading books we probably wouldn't have chosen ourselves.
This isn't a high powered discussion group, but simply a group of people who enjoy reading and discussing what they've read. If you see a title you'd like to read, just turn up on the night and join in.
Mum to Mum
Join us for a relaxed and supportive bible study with a special emphasis on what God says about being a mum. Meeting fortnightly (term time) on Wednesdays at 9:45am for coffee, cake, DVD teaching and small group discussion. Crèche for 0-5's.It's a great chance to be inspired, exchange ideas and even get that elusive child-free cuppa!. Contact Susie Gooding or Joanne McIlwaine for more information.
Men's Breakfast meets 0800-1000 on the fourth Sunday of most months. It's an informal gathering for a bacon roll, a short time of worship and a talk and/or discussion. We try to make the topics relevant, interesting and challenging... but the main point is that it's a friendly group and a good place for the men of SBC to fellowship together. Anyone new to the church is particularly welcome. Just let us know you're coming so we buy enough rolls! Contact: Roddy Evans via the church office.
At XS we aim to provide a warm and welcoming place where people over 50 can find company, friendship, coffee and a light nutritious lunch. We also provide stimulating activities which are generally underpinned by Christian values
We meet on Fridays in Stirling Baptist Church at 11am ; generally finishing at 2.30pm (There are short breaks at Christmas and Easter and a longer break in the summer months)
XS is run by volunteers who are all connected to Stirling Baptist Church
