Growth Groups are a chance to share our lives together as we read the Bible and pray. We meet mid-week in each other’s homes, so in many ways Growth Groups are the back-bone to our church as we really get to know each other.
Growth Groups run for four 7-8 week blocks each year. There are a number of different groups to choose from, most run 7:00-9:00pm but there is also a ladies morning group. There is a little more information here.
Growth Groups are more than just a Bible Study, but studying the Bible shapes everything about them. Usually (but not always) the Bible studies cover the same book of the Bible as Church on Sunday.
Socials are another important part of church life – because we want to get to know each other and share our lives together. We also want our family and friends to see what it means for us to be followers of Jesus so that they too might join us as followers of Jesus. Having fun together helps a lot to that end!
Through the course of a year we have lunches after Morning Church, dinners after NightChurch, Dinners for Eight, ladies socials, men’s dinners, Youth Group socials, KPC Kids socials, ‘play in the park’, a weekend away, or a weekend at home. And of course there’s morning tea and supper every Sunday – good reasons not to rush away after church and stay and talk.
