The group I lead calls itself 'Emmaus'. This reminds us that Jesus walks with us.
The group, which has existed for several years, having re-formed several times because of growing numbers, meets fortnightly on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays - and the 5th when there is one. We meet in the homes of various members.
There are 8 committed members and several others often join us for social events.
We follow a Biblical model based on 1 Corinthians 14:26:
"When you come together, everyone 'has a' hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation.
All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church."
This means that we sing (?!! - not very well, but God loves His crows as well as His nightingales!) We share news, views and experiences, study the Bible and pray. There is a strong sense of support between the members and we hope to encourage more into our group.
