GOSPEL IN LIFE GROUP
What is it?
In a nutshell the Gospel in Life Group is people of varying ages and experiences coming together to get to know God better.
Where does the name Gospel in Life Group come from?
It’s from an 8 week course by Timothy Keller on the gospel and how it is lived out in all of life. First in our hearts, then in community and out into the world. We used this material way back when the group didn’t even have a name but it really captures what studying the Bible is all about.
When does it meet?
Alternate Thursday evenings at BBC. Come for 7.30pm and you’ll have time for coffee and chat before things start at 7.45pm. we aim to finish by 9.30pm.
Who is it for?
Anyone, not just church members. If you can come on a regular basis that’s great, but dropping in when you can make it is fine too.
What can I expect?
At the start of the evening we meet as one group and there is time for any general updates and opening in prayer. We then break into smaller groups for study time and discussion. We may be looking at a particular book in the Bible or a theme or topic which affects our daily lives as Christians. Prayer is an important part of our time together and in the small groups there is an opportunity to pray together.
