Life Groups are an integral part of how we connect at GraceLife. They are clusters of people who gather fortnightly for fellowship and accountability, study and prayer, good times, and support when life gets difficult. At the heart of our Life Groups ministry is the desire to see a community of believers who worship Jesus, love one another, and embody the mission of GraceLife (to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ in authentic community).
Have you been baptised yet?!
Water Baptisms are a key part of the journey of following Jesus, as we make a public declaration of our faith in Him!
If you'd like to be baptised, put your name down at church reception or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Why do we do courses and training at GraceLife?
Part of the responsibility of this community is to equip each one of us for the work of the ministry that God has given to us (Ephesians 4: 11-13). One way that we undertake to fulfil this is through teaching and training, using courses designed to disciple us in many vital areas of our lives.
Who are these courses for?
Everyone!! Who doesn’t need to grow in some area in 2017?
Prayerfully consider which of the following courses would help and encourage you to work with God for change, growth, healing, and maturity this year. But also think about family, friends and workmates who may also benefit and encourage them to come. All are welcome.
How do I get involved?
To apply for any of these courses, complete an application form, make your payment, and submit the form and receipt at reception or place it in the giving box on the wall in the auditorium. For payments online, please make the payment and print the receipt to attach.
Note: If the cost of any of these courses will make it difficult for you to attend, please see Alison. For any further information, contact Alison Pendergrast at email@example.com.
The ALPHA course is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith, and provides an opportunity to fulfill Jesus’ command to “Go and make disciples”. It is designed to engage people, and particularly those outside the church, in a conversation about Jesus; and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a relaxed and safe environment. Commencing with a prayer focus through the 21 days of prayer and fasting (May 15-June 4), the ALPHA course will provide an opportunity for those we are praying for, to be invited to investigate the claims of the Christian faith. There will be many opportunities for people to serve in hospitality, hosting, worship, and facilitating, as part of the course. But most importantly, it will provide a focus and opportunity for all of us to invite unsaved family, friends and community.
