Small Groups at The Point

We encourage everyone at The Point to be part of a mid week Small Group, there are about 15 groups to choose from, or why not start your own!  The new vision for Small Groups is a fresh focus on spiritual growth and transformation for every member.  All the groups are using new material from The Bible Society this term called the Lyfe Course.  If you would like to join a group or find out more, please contact John Naudé john@thepointchurch.co.uk and/or check out the small groups page on the website: http://thepointchurch.co.uk/get-involved/small-groups/
Here is a summary of Lyfe: A new 12 week course created by the Bible Society for small group to grow in discipleship, looking at 6 aspects of our spiritual life (2 sessions on each).
  • Still Lyfe (Focuses on prayer and invites us to keep our hearts and minds focused on God);
  • Real Lyfe (is about the re-formation of our heart, a transformation from the inside out);
  • Spirit Lyfe (invites us to be empowered and fuelled by the presence and power of God);
  • Just Lyfe (promotes a life of compassion, extended to every sphere of life, motivated and empowered by the love of God);
  • Word Lyfe (invites us to be immersed and formed by the Word of God and to living out the good news of Jesus);
  • Whole Lyfe (brings life and faith together, helping us to see God in everything we do).
