Home Groups

Our aim is to build a Christ centred community in small groups at West Church with the aims of making all members feel welcomed, cared for, built up, brought closer to Jesus, and “plugged in” to the wider body, as well as to provide a safe place from which members can reach out in their wider communities with the love and good news of Christ.

 

We’re about: 

 

  • Reaching In: connecting with God (upward) and with each other (inward)
  • Reaching Out: connecting with our world (outward), maturing in our faith (forward), and watching our groups grow and multiply (onward)

Home Groups are founded on:

  • Confidentiality
  • Open Communication

  • Participation by all
