Life groups are simply great places to connect, to experience and share our life in Christ. From New Testament times, the people of God have gathered together in homes to learn and grow, to care for and encourage one another, to worship and pray, to build robust personal relationships and to engage in mission. In a large church such as ours, Life groups are vital for growth and care, belonging and contribution. When our Life groups are full of life, there is a greater sense of vitality in our public worship and in our mission to our neighbours and workplaces.
What is a Life Group?
A Life group is a group of people from within our wider church community. Group membership varies from 6-14 people. Groups meet weekly or fortnightly, in the evening or during the day. Life groups are safe places to grow spiritually, share of ourselves and be encouraged to live out our Christian commitment.
What happens during a meeting?
A typical meeting includes time to chat and listen, learn from the Bible, share and pray as people feel comfortable. Some groups meet at other times for social events or to be involved together in ministry and service.
What can I expect from a Life Group?
To be part of an extended family marked by friendship, mutual love, commitment and confidentiality among members of the group.
To have the opportunity of giving and receiving spiritual and practical help.
Which Life Group should I join?
Availability varies from time to time, but there are many types to choose from. For example, young adult groups, morning groups with childcare, men's groups, women's groups, mixed groups and family groups.
