Life Groups 

Life Groups are an important part of Church life; meeting together on a regular basis, usually in someone's home.  Being part of a life group enables you to build strong relationships to support and encourage each other through life and in your walk with God. It is also a place to delve deeper into God's word through studying the bible and praying together.

There are Life Groups available on different days of the week, during the day and also in the evening.  Our aim is to make life groups accessible to all members of the Church.

If you would like to be part of a Life group or would just like to know a bit more about it please contact Pat House via the Church Office.
