What does Group Life look like at King's Arms?
It's hard to get to know people in a crowd. That is why smaller groups are critical and we encourage everyone across the church family to be connected with a group. We have two main types of groups: missional communities (MC) and life groups (LG). These groups are some of the main ways we care for one another as a church family, encourage each other in the Christian life and live a life of mission together.
Both missional communities and life groups look to have a healthy rhythm of UP: Connecting with God, IN: Growing in our character and OUT: Reaching out to the world around. They are more than just a meeting as we seek to live life together and build genuine relationships with those who are not yet part of the church family. All groups have a foundation of discipleship, seeking God together and building community.
The only difference between MCs and LGs is how they express the "out" part of the rhythm.
Missional communities are gathered around a common group mission or passion impacting an area of society and they seek to influence this area together. We have groups reaching out to pubs, music lovers, going into prisons or reaching the art community, as well as many others.
Life groups encourage and equip people to be missional in their workplace or the area of influence they already feel called to.
