Life Groups

What is a Life Group?

A disciple-making team in which every person is:

  • Growing in their knowledge & devotion to Christ through the Word and prayer
  • Learning to win and build disciples for Christ together

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to grow as a follower of Jesus, young or old, visitor or long-term attender.

How do they work?

Life Groups will meet weekly or fortnightly for the purpose of:

  • Engaging with the Word and fervent prayer (this is what God uses to bring about radical change in our lives)
  • Caring pastorally for and encouraging spiritual growth in every member of the group
  • Working as a team to reach new people for Christ
  • Learning how to welcome newcomers to church and the group
  • Training and encouraging each other to be involved in the ministries of New Life

When do groups meet?

At a time convenient to each group. It could be on Sundays or during the week and will last for about 90 minutes. We hope people will stick to one group and really get to know the people in it over time. Groups will be led by leaders who have been trained and will continue to meet for training.

What is the format of the meeting?

Every group opens with fellowship over coffee/tea/drinks and sweets/cakes/nibbles. This will be followed by a time of Bible Study, followed by a discussion on disciple-making, and finally a time of prayer.
