Midweek ministries

Small Groups

There is a Zoom Home group that meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month from 7.30pm to 9.00pm The members of the group come from different parts of the city, and find it convenient to meet online without having to leave home!

Different people help to lead our meetings. We focus on reading the Bible together, listening to each other and sharing our thoughts on the passage(s) we are studying. We try to make time for ten minutes or so of prayer at the end of our meetings.

If you are interested and would like to know more, please get in touch.

Central Fellowship Group:

Usually meeting from 7:30 to 9:00pm on alternate Mondays on site at CRBC (in the Lounge) the group works through a Bible study guide either on a topic or a particular character or book in the Bible. Group members take it in turns to lead (but there’s no pressure to do so!), and the gathering normally close with a chance to pray for each other and any known issues within CRBC or the wider world. The group generally meets during term time and likes to end each term with a social! If you’d like to know more or join in, please do get in touch.

Prayer Meeting

Meeting from 10:00 -10:30 in the Lounge every Thursday during term, a group of between 8 and 16 people meet to pray for anything and everything! We often start with a leader providing a short reflection on a Bible verse or something that helps us consider God’s character and nature, before bringing our praise, thanks and concerns to God in prayer. The group has a special focus on praying for those in need in our fellowship, and the work of BMS World Mission. If you’d like to ask any questions about the group or wanted further information, do get in touch.

Munch Club

As a group for anyone 55 years old and over, Munch Club meets from 11.30am-2pm on Tuesdays during terms time, to create a chance to socialise and to share in a wonderful three-course meal, all for only £3.00! Guests are welcome in the Lounge from 11.30am, for tea, coffee and chat, where there’s often a short talk or interesting presentation on a whole range of themes from 12.00pm (or you can arrive at 12:30 in time for the food).

Munch Club is a great opportunity to meet new people or old friends, to share a delicious meal around a table, and enjoy being waited on! There’s typically about 20-30 people who join in, with a wide variety of food served (where allergens are published on the weekly menu).

Andrea Hanson leads the volunteer team that provides Munch Club; please do let us know if you’d like her to get in touch with you, if there were any further question about Munch Club, or specific needs you wished to discuss.

Farsi Group

The Farsi group meets each Thursday in school term times, from 7pm to 9pm in the upstairs Conference Room. Coffee and/or tea are on offer at the start and end of the meeting. Our aim is to welcome Farsi speakers and provide a space where they can meet to encourage and support each other. We focus on worshipping God together, studying the Bible and praying for each other. Over the past two years we have looked at various topics, most recently considering worship, Bible study, fellowship and witness as part of the life of the church and of each Christian.

For more information about the meetings please do get in touch.


A few times each term we enjoy social events as a church, gathering for things like a Pizza and Quiz Night of a Heritage Open Day… Have a look at our <Facebook page> to see what’s planned next, or what we’ve been up to in the past!
