Would you like to join a Samuel group this year?
Wondering what God is calling you to do with your life?
Samuel Groups are for single young adults (18-35), who feel they would benefit from having some direction as to what God is calling them to do with their lives. London Samuel Groups for 2017-18 will have their first meeting in November.
Samuel Groups take their name from the story of the Prophet Samuel told in Chapter 3 of the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament. Samuel, still a young boy, hears a voice call him by name and thinks it is the voice of the priest Eli. At first Eli does not realize what is happening but when the call is repeated a number of times he recognizes that this is the voice of God. He tells Samuel that when he next hears the voice he should answer, “Speak, Lord, your servant is listening.”
What commitment is involved?
Participants take time to listen to God and to His Word speaking to their life. They commit to attending monthly meetings with the group, and to meeting individually with a spiritual guide.
What happens in the monthly group meeting?
The heart of the group meetings is a time of Lectio Divina or prayer with the Bible. As well as this there will be some social time, and often a guest speaker and time for discussion.
