Life Groups

Life Groups are arguably the core activity of our church, with most of our members involved in one.

Life groups exist to study the Bible, encourage members to grow in their Christian faith, and develop deep friendships, with partners and friends being welcomed to occasional socials. During lockdowns, Life Groups have continued using Zoom. We are now mostly back to face to face groups but this looks different in each group, sensitive to people's needs and feelings about the relaxation of restrictions. Please contact us if you are part of our church family and are not yet in a small group. We can help you find a group where you feel at home.

Missional Groups

The first week of each month Life Groups don't meet, to allow people to be involved with one of our Missional Groups, which are as follows:

  • Benson (local Christians getting together to impact their village) - contact Nick Gough
  • Berinsfield (in partnership with other churches to impact the village) - contact Pastor Simon
  • CAP (supporting the work of our debt centre) - contact Rachel Tole
  • Families outreach - contact Suzie Willers
  • Kintsugi Hope (wellbeing, mental health) - contact Sue Bright
  • Prison Fellowship (supporting the chaplaincy at Huntercombe) - contact Karen Goode or Nick Chancellor
  • South Moreton Boxing Club (evangelistic events and charity work) - contact John Houston

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30am with a warm welcome from our Pastor or another member of our team. Then we have a time of sung worship, led by musicians. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the Bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is Bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:
Under normal circumstances you can expect to find the following groups on a Sunday morning, though during the pandemic we are doing our children's work in different ways and at different times, so it's best to contact us for more up to date information.

  • Creche (0 months to 3 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their grown-up at all times.
  • Splashgang (school years R-2)
  • Supergang (school years 3-6)
  • Young people (school year 6+)

Children stay with their grown-ups at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. Someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, Bible stories, praying, music, craft, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.


Getting Connected

Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our life groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out our Life Groups page and contact us. We can put you in touch with a life group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
