No study group in Teesside

I'm developing an interest in Anabaptism and would like to be able to take part in a group near where I live [Skelton, Saltburn]. But I think the nearest group is in York. Could anyone advise me if it's possible for a newbie to faciliate the development of a new group, and what support and resources might be available. It would be good to hear, or talk to someone, about what formats have evolved in current groups and generally 'how it's done'.
