LIFE Groups 

Why LIFE Groups?
On an average Sunday we have over 450 people worshipping at Bath City Church across the two meetings, so it can be easy to get a little lost. We were never designed to be alone or to go through life, and the challenges it can bring, on our own.

We have recognised that small groups are a critical part to effectively achieve our vision to build a radical, relevant church that empowers people to express God's heart, fulfill their dreams and change the world.

Vision
To provide a safe environment for every believer to mature and thrive, both spiritually and emotionally; to foster healthy, authentic community in an atmosphere of mutual respect, honour and trust; to provide an environment of discovery, practice and development of sipirtual gifts, callings and destiny; to identify, develop and mulitply leaders.

Encounter
We want everyone to encounter the life transforming presence of God in community with others

Equip
We want everyone to be equipped to fulfil the dreams and passions that the Father has place in our hearts

Empower
We want everyone to be empowered to change the world around ourselves in our own sphere of ministry

Express
We want everyone to express the likeness of heaven, here on earth
