Life Groups

Become Season

In the January to March, new-year-new-you city rhythm, we seek to focus on becoming more Christlike.

We are called to be conformed to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29); to behold the glory of the Lord and be transformed (2 Corinthians 3:18).

To help facilitate this we run outstanding online courses (see below). People sign up to the one they like the most, assuming it still has space (so it’s wise to commit early to avoid disappointment).

Life Groups mix up in this season, so we can enjoy getting to know others outside our regular group context. Contact through WhatsApp groups and socials continues of course with our Life Groups, including a half term Life Group get together, so we can share and celebrate our learnings with each other.

We hope you’ll find a course for you in this season, but if you don’t, please let us know what course(s) you’d like to see in the future and we’ll see what we can do (maybe you could even lead it next time).

Below are some of the courses we typically run.

Courses

Missional Life

This 12-week course will help you to live a more compelling and consistent Christian life. It addresses questions of angst, calling and ambition, and covers topics like identity, justice and work.

Prayer Course

A brilliantly practical 8-week course that takes you on an immersive journey through the Lord's Prayer covering topics like why pray?, unanswered prayer and spiritual warfare.

Read

These 8-weeks will help you to read all of your Bible more effectively, accurately and devotionally. You’ll learn how to get an overview of a whole book, plus new tools to read narratives, laws and poems. And you'll discover connections from the Old Testament to Jesus and on to modern-day Christians.

Steps

A 12-week journey to freedom. All of us struggle with thoughts and behaviour patterns that prevent us from enjoying life to the full: low self-esteem, lack of confidence, fear of rejection, anger, addiction, control, and more. STEPS is a tried and tested life-changing course designed to help you address these challenges in a positive and affirming way.

Tactics

In this 8-week course, apologist Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to manoeuvre comfortably and graciously through minefields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the tables and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus. You do not need to be a confident conversationalist or evangelist - the course aims to equip and encourage those of us who feel timid and often out of our depth.

The Marriage Course

A 7-week course designed to help married couples invest in their relationships and build even stronger marriages. The course helps couples to: communicate more effectively; understand each other’s needs; resolve conflict; recognise how upbringing affects your relationship; develop greater sexual intimacy; and much more.

Wellbeing

The 8-week Wellbeing Journey explores holistic wellness: body, mind and spirit. It’s based around seven key areas of wellbeing – the wellbeing mindset, physical, emotional, spiritual, relational, financial and vocational – to help you discover how to run on a full tank.
