Lifegroups are a great place to make friends, be equipped for the challenges of life and grow in God. They run on a termly cycle, generally for about 12 weeks. The sign up window for Lifegroups opens at 9pm on 9 April. Or to join a Lifegroup mid-term, view the options below and contact Ian Anderson or email churchoffice@readingfamilychurch.org.uk

The “Why?” of Midweek Lifegroups

We want everyone who comes to our church to find friendship, be equipped to follow Jesus and grow in their love for God and His people. We do this through meeting on a Sunday and also gathering in smaller, midweek life groups.

Our Lifegroups are a place to connect around interests; be equipped to follow Christ; and grow in love for God and his people. Sean Green, Elder

Interest

All of life belongs to God and can be done in a way that pleases Him and blesses the world. (1 Cor 10:31). Common interests help foster friendship… and friendship is the perfect foundation for discipling and caring for each other.

Equipping

Life is full of different stages (Ecclesiastes 3:1-11). Some are expected, some are not; some are welcome, some are not. If you would like help to process where you currently are, or prepare for an anticipated stage of life, then sign up to one of these lifegroups.

These groups aim to help people grow in their love for God and His people. This is done through sung worship, practicing spiritual gifts, reading the Bible, and meeting one another's need. If you are looking to grow in your Christian faith in general, sign up for one of these lifegroups.

FAQS

Lifegroups follow a termly cycle and the Summer Term 2017 will start the week beginning Monday 1 May. The lifegroups for the spring term will be listed in April and the sign up window is open from 9pm on Sunday 9 April 2017, so you can choose one that suits you.

Most lifegroups meet during the school term for about 12 weeks. However, the frequency of the meetings is explained in the lifegroup’s description.

Lifegroups are organised by days of the week. You are free to choose a lifegroup by location, focus or leader of the lifegroup. We hope there is something for everyone. Leaders will be available during sign-up to give more details of what they are doing. Some lifegroups have a limited number of spaces so sign up quickly!

Sundays and lifegroups are the heart of life at RFC, so we would love everyone to be part of a lifegroup, but no one is forced to sign up.

Yes, please! We would like everyone to sign up again.

The sign-up is for one term at a time. For lifegroups to develop friendships and grow in faith together, we encourage everyone to attend every session, if possible, for the weeks the lifegroup is running. At the end of the term you have the option to sign up again if the lifegroup is continuing, join another lifegroup or take a break.

The lifegroup leader will contact you to confirm the details of start date, when and where the lifegroup will meet and welcome you into the lifegroup.

Most lifegroups will not be open after the second week so that real friendships can develop. But we have a few lifegroups which remain open all term so that new people can get involved at any stage.
