Trees cannot bear fruit unless they have their roots in nourishing soil, and if we are to bear fruit we too need our roots deep in the good news of Jesus in the Scriptures.

Roots and Shoots meets one Sunday a month (12.45PM) for lunch and discussion, and one Tuesday evening (7.30PM) a month. Our aim is to put our roots deep into our understanding of faith and Scripture so that we might be fruitful in our testimony to God’s love to those around us.
