Why LIFEgroups (Small Group Network)?

We often find ourselves wanting go deeper with God, but have trouble finding the space and the setting to make it happen.


Do you find yourself asking…

  • How can I grow deeper in my faith?

  • How does my faith connect with everyday life?

  • Where is God working in the Church and the Community?

  • What part do I play?

If so, then LIFEgroups is for you.



LIFEgroup has two fundamental purposes for meeting:

  1. The group offers a place of belonging where through commitment, confidentiality and participation, the group becomes a safe place for learning from each other and sharing.

  2. Out of that place of belonging, LIFEgroups second purpose is to grow spiritually, through Bible study, praying for one another and sharing testimonies of how God is working.

When and where?

At the moment, we are running two groups - Morning group and evening group. 

  • Morning group: every 2nd and 4th Friday at 10.30am at St Erkenwald's Church

  • Evening group: every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 7.30pm at St Erkenwald's Vicarage
