Groups & Growth
Life Groups form a vibrant community where we can connect with God, his body and our neighbours.
Life Groups in Local Homes
We’re better together and we know that in a big church, it can be difficult to know how to connect with others. Joining a Life Group is a great way to become a part of a vibrant community where you can connect with God, His body and your neighbours. Life change and connection to others happens in circles not in rows! To make it convenient for you, we have Life Groups that meet across the city. Interested in finding out more? Want to get connected? Contact us.
The following questions and answers will help you understand the benefits of joining Life Group.
Who is in my group?
Ideally, each group includes 6 to 10 people who live in the same neighbourhood. Groups are multi-generational, with men and women, married couples and singles, from various backgrounds. This diversity allows you to draw on the wisdom of different life experiences—and share yours as well.
Who leads my group?
Each group has a leader who is a member The Peoples Church and who has leadership gifts, spiritual maturity and biblical training. You may join a group that already has a leader—or you might be just the person to become a leader.
When and where do we meet?
Your group will set its own meeting time and place—usually 2 to 4 times per month in the home of someone who has agreed to be a host. Groups are most meaningful when everyone makes a commitment to meet consistently.
What happens during group meetings?
Life Group meetings provide a place to connect, catch up as friends and enjoy a meal or refreshments, as well as to engage in meaningful discussion that helps you apply God’s Word to your everyday life.
Discussion is based on our weekly sermons, so you have the opportunity to re-examine what you heard from God’s Word and then decide how to put that into action. This is important because the Scriptures teach us: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (James 1:22).
Life Groups can access Sermon Archives and Bible Study Guides updated every Monday.
Rooted Discipleship Journey
Connect with God, the church community and your purpose in unexpected, life-changing ways. Rooted is an interactive, 10-week experience that redefines how people live life and view their relationship with God and others, giving context to what it means to be a part of something bigger.
As you get together with your group each week, you will have the opportunity to share what God has been revealing to you through the week’s readings, journal entries and prayer. You will also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage and guide each member. Please email us for information about our next journey.
