House Groups comprise members of Parish congregations who meet in each other’s houses to study the Bible and other books, to discuss issues raised, pray, enjoy fellowship and refreshments. The sessions are led by members of the group.

There are currently four house groups meeting in the Parish of Abingdon-on-Thames. Meetings are usually fortnightly and in the informal setting of the host’s home. The Desiring Life group meets on Tuesday afternoons in the Parish Centre Lounge.
