Our Life Groups (small groups) are gatherings of 8 or more people, primarily from the same geographical area, meeting in various homes or locations on a regular basis. They provide an opportunity for intimacy with God and each other, reflecting on the Scriptures, praying together, mutual support and encouragement, and avenues for practical love and service – to one another, and to the community around us. In short, they are basic Christian communities where discipleship, fellowship, ministry, and evangelism are to be modeled and carried out.
