|The Church of Scotland Parish of Howe Trinity has several active community groups including the traditional Guild, the After 8's, a Prayer and Worship Group, as well as the Choir and Music Group. All groups are well attended, but new members are always welcome. See below for further details of each group.|
|BIBLE STUDY AND PRAYER GROUPS|
|The church has a bible fellowship whose principal aim is to try
and bring the bible message and it's meaning alive to modern day living. This
group has been meeting every Tuesday for over 12 years and still finds bible
passages that surprise and challenge us today. They do not go in for sermons
and everyone is encouraged to join in the discussion.
The Bible Fellowship meet each Tuesday evening (7.30pm) in the Lounge

|Formally known as the "House Group", the Wednesday
Evening Study Group is an opportunity to meet other people in a relaxed
atmosphere and develop friendships. It is an opportunity for bible study, in
which everyone can contribute their thoughts. It is an opportunity for the
honest facing of doubts and questions. It is a place for encouragement and
mutual support. It is a place where people can come and just be, secure in the
knowledge that they are accepted just as they are.
You are welcome to join us on every Wednesday during school term time - 7.30pm in the Church Hall Lounge.

|Tuesday Morning Bible Discussion Group|
|The choir was re-established in 2000 in order to strengthen the
musical life of the congregation and support the praise.
The choir practices on the first Sunday of the month, and leads the praise at the morning service on the following Sunday, when there may be a short introit or anthem or a new hymn for the congregation to learn.
New members are always welcome. An ability to sing in tune is essential, the ability to read music is preferred, but not compulsory.

|For the last couple of years a small music group has played at
occasional services - usually four or five times a year.
The music group is made up of all ages and any type of instrument. Any instrumentalist interested in joining the group would be most welcome.

Howe Praise is made up of musicians and vocalists who lead contemporary praise
