Small groups for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and church life development meet regularly. Find out more by exploring our website, or pay us a visit.

For more in-depth teaching and discussion, a group meets at Wesley most Thursday evenings to study a book of the Bible, led by various members of the church. Meetings are 7.30 for 8.00 for an hour, and include refreshments, music and worship. Our current  study is 1 Corinthians.

Wesley Painting Club meets on the first Saturday of the month.
