LIFE IS BEST DONE TOGETHER
“They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…”
Sunday meetings are fantastic for combined worship and hearing God’s Word taught, but it is sometimes not that easy to get to know others in the church
And this is exactly where LifeGroups come in. With over 160 of these in operation, and varying in size from four to 70 people, they allow one to experience a genuine, close-knit biblical community.
For many, Life Groups become a family of sorts. With meetings generally held weekly, people can not only share in the trials and triumphs of life, but also explore The Word and enjoy connecting in a tight-knit community… as well as break bread, in many cases.
Life Groups provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to shine in their particular areas of strength, so benefiting themselves and others in the group.
For as it is so evocatively written in Acts 2:44-47. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
