Life Groups

We recommend that all our members belong to a life group. These meet regularly (usually weekly) in people’s homes. We may discuss the sermon, work our way through a study guide or discuss difficult questions.  Some groups are more practical going on prayer walks and socialising.  For more information, email our Discipleship Pastor

To create an environment which makes the Christian faith accessible to the average UK man and church a place where they can belong, get involved, make a difference and have fun.

As men within SCF we get excited about doing things together as men. Clearly we get huge enjoyment out of doing stuff with the women and children in our lives, but we recognise that there’s something special about just getting together as a bunch of blokes.

We’re delighted to partner with Christian Vision for Men (CVM) and tap into their resources and events. Together, we believe that we can make a positive difference within our community.

Fun / Social

Every couple of months we get together and do something where we can all just relax, hang out, catch-up and have some fun.


We meet regularly on a Friday evening over a meal and a beer to share and discuss topics affecting our lives and the world around us.


Older people play an important part in our church family across all areas and groups and enjoy different aspect of teaching and ministry as well as social times together.

Tuesday Club
