'Small Christian Community Groups              



Small Christian Community Groups meet in fellowship to study scripture, to discuss it and pray together.


There are two Small Christian Community (S.C.C.) groups in Firhouse.  ‘New Dawn’ meets every Monday night at 8.00.p.m. and ‘New Horizon’ meets every Wednesday morning at 11.00.a.m.


At the S.C.C. meetings we come together not just as people from the Parish but as Believers and Friends.  A candle is lit to remind us of the confidentiality and trust we share in supporting one another on life´s journey.  Over a cuppa we share the bits and pieces of everyday life.  We then listen prayerfully to the Word of God in the Gospel for the following Sunday.  We reflect on what it might be saying to us in light of what is happening in our own lives, in our country or the World.  We share our reflections and search for ways we can make a difference to improve situations, be it in our personal lives, in our family, our neighbourhood or the wider society.


The purpose of this is not just to come together to pray which we also do, but it is to follow Christ by expressing an adult faith in action.



We end each meeting by praying for individual, parish, national and international needs.  During the week we follow up on any task that comes from the scripture reflection and we take with us six/eight different reflections to the following Sunday, this together with the Priest´s homily makes our Sunday Liturgies more meaningful.
