Life Groups

What are life groups?
As a growing church, we want to ensure that everyone who joins the St Lawrence Church family has a place to belong. Life Groups are groups that aim to encourage us towards Christian growth and provide opportunities for making a greater impact in our community. If you haven’t yet joined one yet, St Lawrence has groups meeting both daytime and evening throughout the week in homes.

Why join a life Group?
Being part of a Life Group is a great way to feel a part of the church family, build relationships and to grow alongside others in our walk with Jesus. 
How do I join a Life Group? Please contact a group leader or speak to Phil.

connect-alpha

Alpha

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions to discuss the Christian faith in an informal, fun and friendly environment. Alpha consists of 10 talks, looking at topics including 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why and how do I pray?' We meet for dinner and then each talk is followed by discussion in small groups. You don’t have to come for the whole term – just pop along for the first session and see what you think. No pressure.

Who is Alpha for?
Alpha is for everyone; no question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish. We don’t assume any background knowledge of or belief in Christianity and everyone is welcome.
