At Luton, Sister Janet Norman is hoping to recruit new members from local parishes - contact her on 01582 897378 on email firstname.lastname@example.org .
One thing that seems to be a common factor is the size of the group. Both groups had only 4 members. The same thing happened to a small parish Lectio Divina group I belonged to - long term sickness or a death of a member can cause terminal damage to a group. If your group has more members, do try to form a small committee so that there is always someone to carry on leading the group. The closure of your Ascent Group can cause a big gap in your life particularly if it also provided social as well as spiritual activities, but adding the social dimension can really add to the attractiveness of Ascent to other parishioners.
