Life Groups are at the heart of our church, strengthening our relationships with one another and with God, by studying the bible and sharing life together. In essence they reflect our vision of “connecting our community with Christ”.
Life Groups offer a place for friendship, encouragement, support, connecting newcomers with our church family, spiritual growth, empowering for ministry, and much more in a small group setting.
Some frequently asked questions:
Who are the leaders? The leaders are members of St John’s who have been identified as gifted in leading small group studies.
How many are in each group? Groups work best when they include between 6 – 12 people.
How often do we meet? Most groups meet once a week.
Where do we meet? Most groups meet in a home, or on the church premises.
Who’s in my group? Most groups are identified according to age and stage of life.
What do we study? Some groups work through the study questions from the Sunday sermon, whilst other groups decide with their leader what they will study together.
What involvement is required? Being part of a life group means being involved in relationships, which involves commitment. Growth and care in the group happens best when everyone is committed to regularly meeting together.
The ‘Women in Fellowship’ ministry has grown out of a desire to draw together the women of St John’s across different ages, life stages and church services. Our aim is to deepen our relationship with God and with one another. Regular events are organised across the year that are specifically tailored to encourage women to grow in their knowledge and love of our great God, as well as provide opportunities to invite friends along. These events are about bringing a community of women together. It doesn’t matter what age, stage of life, or background you come from, all are welcome. See what events are coming up in the St John’s calendar.
The ‘Men@St John’s’ ministry has evolved over time in order to provide a way for men at St John’s to gather, grow and deepen relationships with each other and our God, whilst having fun doing stuff that men really know how to appreciate. Regular events are organised across the year, with opportunities for men from any walk of life to join our growing community. See what events are coming up in the St John’s calendar.
