      Our midweek small group Bible studies are really important to our church life together at St Helen's. Most of us find that meeting up with a small group of people during the week to help one another understand God's word better and to pray together really helps us to grow in our relationship with God and with one another. They are a great complement to our Sunday meetings and as we read, think, pray and serve together so we become more the church God would have us be.

      All RML evenings start at 6:45pm, when we enjoy a hot meal together before the study, and are finished by 9pm.

      RML Romans follows on from RML Mark, taking us deeper into God's Word as we look into what it means to live as a Christian, using the book of Romans. We meet once a week across the year, with the opportunity to go away together for three weekends each year, one each term, considering key topics - Church, God's Sovereignty and Evangelism. We would love you to join us.
