What are Life Groups?
We believe that ‘doing life’ together as God’s children is essential to growing in our Christian faith and becoming disciples who make disciples. Life Groups stand at the heart of life in Bangor Parish and offer the chance to do just that, as we experience and share God’s abundant life in a smaller setting than our Sunday services.
Life Groups are informal and supportive small groups that provide the opportunity for real and lasting friendships with people who will journey with us through the ups and downs of life, show us Christ’s love, and challenge us to grow in faith and love. Through Life Groups we expect to see transformation in our lives, our church and our world as we put Sunday’s teaching into practice, learn to serve one another with the gifts God has given us, and reach out with the Good News of Christ.
What do they do?
Life Group meetings offer the chance to get to know one another better through sharing our lives over coffee and biscuits, enjoying a time of worship, studying God’s Word as we apply Sunday’s teaching, and caring for one another through prayer and ministry. Along the journey there will be opportunities to serve one another and our church family, to reach out to our world together with the love and good news of Jesus Christ, and to have fun together too!
How often do they meet?
Life Groups meet weekly over the course of three 6-8 week terms: October-November, February-March, and May-June.
