The Bookworm Group is the place to come if you enjoy reading and a chance to reflect with others as well as having fun.

People who are interested in joining the Bookworm Group please e-mail Barbara at stephen.hedgecock@blueyonder.co.uk

The Bookworm Group was formed in 1988 by Ray Adams, our minister at the time, with church members who love to read. The rationale was that people who belong to a church need to have a better idea of what and how people outside the church think, especially if they want to interact constructively with the modern world.

Since its foundation the Book Group has convened approximately every six weeks to discuss a book. Through the years its members have been introduced to new authors, books, as well as new countries and cultures outside western culture. Occasionally the Book Group has returned to a literature classic, only to discover how contemporary its themes and concerns are.

The size of the Book Group has stayed stable at approximately nine people through the years. Once every year they meet to suggest books for the following twelve months, so that every person usually contributes one book for the reading list. The reading list for 2016 is as follows:
