Why be part of a home group?
Home Groups are there to help us live out what it means to love God and love each other. They are where people are cared for pastorally. As we each connect in a Home Group we have the opportunity to encourage each other to follow Jesus in all the challenges of everyday life, to “spur each other on towards love and good deeds”, and to be equipped to go and share our lives and the gospel with our friends and neighbours.
What happens in a Home Group?
Think of it as a weekly gathering of friends who are looking to deepen their relationship with God through sharing their life experiences, studying the scriptures, caring and praying for one another, discussing what it means to be a whole-hearted follower of Jesus Christ, and learning how to make it real in our daily lives. And usually there’s coffee.
Who can attend?
