As well as providing Sunday services, we co-ordinate a number of smaller groups that meet regularly through the week to help people grow in their faith and connect with each other. These groups are an enjoyable yet essential part of our church life. Groups meet in a variety of suburbs and around different topics, interests or stages of life.
When groups meet, the time typically includes refreshments or an enjoyable activity, sharing weekly highs and lows, discussing a Bible passage and applying the principles from it to our lives.
Our goal through groups is to discover who God is and grow to become all that He wants us to be. It’s the place where the rubber hits the road; where our faith gets practical and is applied in our lives. We also regularly encourage one another by praying for and helping each other out in life’s challenges. It’s also a great place to bring questions of life and faith as no question is too difficult or too basic.
Here are a few quotes from people who are part of Discovery Groups this year:
“I like the format of the group. There is also an emphasis on applying God’s word in our everyday lives – it’s not just a theoretical study”.
“My closest friends at church are the ones in my Discovery Group where we have explored God’s word together and shared life’s blessings and challenges through prayer time”.
