Life Groups at FBC are a fundamental part of our calling to authentic discipleship.
The groups provide a place where we can walk together as disciples of Jesus Christ and work out how to live the Christian life.
Our Life Groups operate with the following values:
Learning is for everyone
Learning in community
Learning through doing
Learning leads to growth
There are currently eight Life Groups at FBC meeting across the week from Tuesdays to Thursdays, most in the evenings, and one during the day.
The groups do not have dedicated leaders as such, but various roles are shared by the members. Group Mentors support a number of groups to ensure the groups flourish. Each autumn there is a sign-up process so that all the groups can start afresh, and members have the opportunity to move to another group if they think this will help them in their discipleship.
Each group has a great deal of freedom to work out how it will operate, but material is provided during term-time matching the preaching themes for those groups that wish to use it.
If you wish to be part of a group please speak to one of the Elders
, and they will happily suggest a group you can join.
