Life groups are the best way for disciples of Jesus to learn and grow. Its tough keeping Jesus at the centre of our lives if we're not doing life together with other Christians who support and encourage us. If you call The Billabong your church family, we encourage you to consider joining a life group, or consider whether God is calling you to start your own.
What's a life group? Each group is unique, but you can expect a regular (usually fortnightly) time of gathering, usually with food/coffee, and with conversation around prayer and/or the Bible. Some groups also participate in activities that bless and serve others, while others focus on equipping us to follow Jesus and love others in our everyday lives (whether that be in parenting, student life or navigating retirement!)
Would you like to join a group or talk to our team about starting your own? Contact Luke on 0423 958 973 or firstname.lastname@example.org
