Who are we?

An assortment of Christians from the Charnwood Forest area of Leicestershire, England. We are from a number of different church types ("Denominations") though some have no particular Church affiliation. Some have been Christians for many years while others have just started to explore the teachings of Christ. Our meetings, which are informal, include prayer and study of the Bible with discussions about our faith and how it informs our daily lives.

We have no written constitution and no explicit geographical limits!
