Together Bringing Life To Our City
Small Groups – Big Vision
Life groups are small groups of 8-14 people who meet together every week in homes across London. We want the mission of these midweek groups to reflect the mission of our church; to dwell in the presence of God, pursue the way of Jesus, and cultivate a purpose of bringing life to our city, making amazing friendships in the process! So what does this look like?
Together we can experience the dynamic presence of God. We do this through gathering with others to worship, pray, listen and receive, to help us grow in deeper in relationship with Him.
Together we can follow the way of Jesus. Our Life Groups play a vital role in the transformation to become like Jesus. We do this by practising spiritual rhythms, studying the Bible, and becoming like Jesus.
Together we can actually do what Jesus did! We are called to continue His work on earth as it is in heaven. We do this through regular times of serving, blessing, and praying for our communities.
As part of creating space for discipleship and prayer huddles, as well a more sustainable church rhythm, all our groups take a pause once a month. This will start on the 4th week of October. For more details speak to your Life Group Leader or call the office.
WHEN DO GROUPS RUN?
We have 2 terms per year and signups during September and January.
- Term 1: 24th September – 4th December 2019
- Term 2: 20th January – 12th July 2020 (With a break during Easter)
Between term times there is normally about a 6-7 week break, where group leader can take a rest and we host different training events for our leaders and the whole church.
WHY IS THERE A SIGN-UP FOR SOME GROUPS AND NOT OTHERS?
If a group has spaces then the sign up button will allow you to join. If it says ‘closed’, this means that the group is full and reached it capacity.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A GROUP IS FULL?
When a Group is full the ‘sign up for this group’ button will say closed, we would encourage you to look for another Group that you feel you could make a home in.
I’M NOT A MEMBER OF V61, IS IT OKAY TO JOIN GROUP?
All of our Life Groups are aimed at building community within our church family. By joining a group you will be joining the community here at the church. Our social groups and courses are open to bringing along your friends – More details in their description or just speak to the group leaders.
THE GROUP I’M IN ISN’T FOR ME, CAN I JOIN ANOTHER?
Yes, there is no pressure to remain in a Group you are already part of. You are free to sign up to any Group you would like.
CAN I ATTEND MORE THAN ONE GROUP?
Yes, you can sign up to as many Life Groups as you would like, but please be aware of others who may want to join – especially if there are not many remaining spaces in that group. You may also find it better to be fully committed to one Life Group, than half committed to two or three Groups.
