The backbone of our groups in Grace Church is our system of Life Groups. Wherever you live, there is likely to be a Life Group near you. Each Life Group is made up of people from all ages and walks of life. Most meet in people’s homes on a fortnightly basis, and each group has leaders (usually a couple) who make sure everything runs smoothly and are there for you if you have any concerns.
Far from being “just another meeting”, our Life Groups are based on the following principles:
- Fun. God save us from dreary meetings where we would rather be anywhere else but have come anyway because we felt we ought to! The single most important element of our Life Groups is that we have fun together – a place to laugh, to chat about our lives and enjoy each other’s company.
- Food. We always share a meal together at Life Group. We have found that people relax over food. So food is not the precursor to the meeting – it is the meeting!
- Fellowship. The earliest Christians devoted themselves to fellowship and so should we. Our Life Groups are a place to show love for one another that goes beyond the superficial. At times of need it is so good to know that there are people ready to pray for you and lend a helping hand.
