While Celebrations on Sunday morning are the ‘face’ of our church, life groups (along with programs and activities) are the heartbeat.
Life groups have been slowly redeveloping over the last few years, and now come in many shapes and forms. The Billabong has a strong history of these kind of groups (originally ‘home churches’) for a very important reason; Jesus builds his church to be a gathered and scattered community.
As The Billabong grows, we strongly encourage you to consider joining a life group, or gathering regularly with a few friends and starting your own. www.thebillabong.org.au/dbs gives you a simple guide for learning from the bible together - a great starting point!
Every single Life Group is different - some more traditional bible studies, and others mixing up what they do week to week. Life groups are about growing in faith together, living our faith together, whatever that looks like.
Our current Life Groups are:
