Fellowship groups are one of the most important ways that people connect and grow in their faith together.
Whatever your age, stage of life, or interests, there is a Fellowship group for you! Further down we have provided a short summary of each of the groups running at Maze
Our Current Study
Sixty-six books written by forty people over nearly 2,000 years, in two languages and several different genres. A worldwide bestseller published in countless sizes and bindings, translations and languages. Sworn by in court, fought over by religious people, quoted in arguments. The Bible is clearly no ordinary book. How can you begin to read and understand it as a whole?
In our next study we will be looking at the big picture–showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. We will gain both the encouragement and the tools to help you read the Bible with confidence and understanding. Above all we will be pointed to the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.
Perhaps you’ve been interested in joining a group, but haven’t done to this date. We are coming together as one to start this new study on Thursday 26th January 7.30pm in the church. This is an easy night to see what sort of thing happens at the groups, meet the leaders and others who attend, and perhaps you might want to get along to one of the groups afterwards. Come along! No requirement to attend one of the groups afterwards!!

We have a good mix of ages and a few couples with kids who take it in turns to come – we are a relaxed, informal bunch who put a focus on growing in our Jesus centred faith, allowing God to speak to us through the word, but also supporting one another prayerfully and practically, with humour and humility as core values within the group trying to achieve this all on a fortnightly basis, aiming to finish at 10
Kathryn Kelsey’s group meets in the church crèche on Friday at 9:30. It is made up mainly of mums with babies and preschoolers – anyone is welcome as long as you don’t mind a bit of noise! The kids play while we study the Bible. Our aim is to be a place where even when life is busy and chaotic, we can still find a space to study God’s Word, whilst supporting and encouraging each other in this particular stage of life.
