Small Groups at St. Paul's Newmarket.Learning and sharing in a small group setting helps an individual grow spiritually and brings encouragement and support in the challenges of life. On Thursday mornings a Lectio Divina (praying-through-Scripture) group meets in the Rectory and in the late afternoon a Contemplative Prayer group gathers to center on God in twenty minutes of silence with an accompanying teaching component. Both groups include a time of fellowship over tea as a part of the experience. Other small group experiences, which may be more task-focussed, may take place either at the church itself or in a parishioner’s home.
