Ladies Who Zoom
This group is for ladies who love to do life together, especially for those who wouldn’t normally get the chance to attend an in-person group. We take a book and study it individually, then come together to discuss what God has been speaking to us about in the week. This term it’s “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry” by John Mark Comer.
Pause & Ponder
A group where we take a Pause from our busy week and take a relaxed approach looking at God’s word. We stop to Ponder on how God’s word works in our lives and we, in turn, in our community/everyday life. Join us for 45 minutes every fortnight.
Connect & Refresh
Maybe you’re new to the Kings Arms or a student in the area – come along to eat, be encouraged and connect! Meeting fortnightly we’ll have a meal together, pray and encourage each other.

Cars need an annual service and MOT. Likewise, it’s good to pause and reflect on how we are doing spiritually. Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount; a rich resource in how to be spiritually healthy. Jesus covers rest, the Kingdom, prayer, fasting, judging and loads more – we’ll talk together, pray for each other and check in on how we are doing.
Coffee, Comfort & Courage
Sit down together with your coffee, your Bible, and some Christian friends (via Zoom). When times are hard, we can comfort each other with the COMFORT the Lord has given us. We will pray together and meditate on God’s word expectantly: “Wait on the Lord: be of good COURAGE, and HE WILL STRENGTHEN YOUR HEART”. – Ps 27:14.
