What is a Life Group?

Building meaningful relationships is a priority for us and we do this through our Life Groups. These are small groups which meet both here at the church and in people’s homes; they provide a way for individuals and couples to connect with other believers through food, fellowship and Bible study.

Life group members encourage and support each other, providing a sense of family in the larger body of believers. Our life groups also play a vital role in the various outreach ministries of Life Church.

For more information, or to start your own group, please contact Bobby Sebastian, our Life Groups Director
