Lifegroups title version 2

As Christians we need a place to grow together in faith, share deeply our joys and struggles and be encouraged to reach out and share Jesus with our community.  Lifegroups do all of these things.  Lifegroups are mission-focused groups that give opportunities to encounter God, equip one another and engage with our community.


Lifegroups aim to: 

1. Encourage members to grow in their faith
  • through bible study
  • through prayer
  • through exercising spiritual gifts
  • through mission
2. Build honest and committed relationships
  • through meeting regularly
  • through caring for one another
  • through working together
3. Focus on a specific mission area in order 
  • to bless our community
  • to serve the poor and needy
  • to help people come to faith in Jesus
