 Group Life

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.

Where and when do they meet?

Groups meet throughout the week all around Bedfordshire. Some groups meet more often than others depending on their particular vision, but they all meet regularly to live out their mission, participate in discipleship and enjoy community together. To see all of our groups and their locations please click the ‘MISSIONAL COMMUNITIES' and 'LIFE GROUPS' tab above.

How do I join?

You can sign up to a group during our two weeks of sign up at the beginning of every term on sign up Sundays. When you sign up to a group we ask that you commit for the whole of that term. You can always stay in the same group when it comes to the next sign up or you can change groups!
If you join us at a time when it’s not our sign up weeks, we have the Belong Group open all term long which is a great place to discover connecting to family at King’s Arms. Click the sign up button next to this group to join throughout the term.
We’d encourage you to be asking the question “What is God saying to you and what are you going to do about it?” to help you decide which group to join or whether God is stirring you to lead one.
