Life Groups are smaller mid-week gatherings which happen across Loughborough, Leicester & Nottingham. They take place in people’s homes – or for some, in coffee shops around town. There are usually around 8-12 people in each Life Group and they’re such a brilliant way of connecting into the Junction Church community. Three words sum up what Life Groups are about: Snacks, Chats & Prayers.
Food is a really great way to relax and get to know other people. In the bible, Jesus had some of his most meaningful conversations over food! So each Life Group enjoys great snacks. Who doesn’t love these, hey?!! Eating together gives us the chance to relax and unwind after a busy day. There’s nothing better than getting together with a bunch of great people during the week and treating yourself to some nice food.
Life Groups are relaxed and conversational. The chats are usually based around the theme from the previous Sunday and how it applies in everyday life. However, there is no pressure to contribute to this. If you want to just listen to others, that’s fine. If you feel you’d like to share some thoughts, that’s fine too. It might even be you have a question you would like to ask. We can’t promise the answer – but we can certainly chat about it. This is such an amazing way of sharing and growing in faith.
There is nothing better than to have people around you who pray for you. Prayer is simply a conversation with God. It really works! We encourage people to pray about everything – whether it’s a challenge or a decision you have to make. The great thing about Life Groups is that each one includes time to pray. This is not intense and it doesn’t go on for a long time. Prayer is simply an opportunity to ask for God’s help.
Church beyond Sunday’s…
Church is more than just Sunday services. Sunday is like the big family get together – and we LOVE it!! However, Life Groups are such an incredible way of connecting into the life of the Junction Church community during the week. You’ll make friends and grow in your faith.
