Home and Prayer Groups
We have a number of house groups who meet together regularly to study the Bible and pray together. For new enquiries please contact: email@example.com
St Helen’s Church arose out of a new housing development in the area bounded by Warwick Rd, Seven Star Rd, Lode Lane and Dovehouse Lane.
After the Second World War, there were lots of young families finding friendships in the area. Several of them got together as a prayer group, where they could nurture their faith in less formal surroundings than were available in the Parish Church. This group grew apace and soon they got too big for meeting in private houses. Meanwhile, a plot of about one acre St. Helens Road had been given to the Parish in 1948 by The Revd R H Couchman.
After much discussion and negotiation, a second hand hut was bought and erected on this plot, mostly by do-it-yourself labour and St. Helen’s Church proper was born. A second hut was added later and a permanent structure built in the mid 1970s.
A new youth hall integrated with the main building, and was dedicated in November 2001. Except for the chapel, which is retained as a place of peace and tranquillity, the buildings were built for multi-purpose use and there are few times when the halls are not occupied by some group, many of them secular.
