St Peter's, Sidford: Regular Bible Study Group
Countless millions of words have been written about Christianity, but the fundamental source of our understanding comes from the Bible, particularly the four Gospels in the New Testament. A greater knowledge of the texts enhances the experience of Christian worship.
A Bible Study group meets, usually fortnightly on Tuesdays, at 10.30am. If you would like to join them, you would be most welcome. Please telephone Janice Salway on 01395 514862 for details and the venue for the next meeting.

St Peters, Sidford: Prayer Group
The Prayer Group meet every fortnight on the alternate Tuesday to the Bible Group, at 10am. This is an opportunity to meet with other people to pray about mutual and individual concerns. Just turn up at St. Peter's Church, Sidford for a warm welcome.

All St Peter's and St Giles group meeting dates are listed on the combined calendar that can be seen on either of the respective church pages.
