WestPark Life Groups are where we “journey together” with others. In Life Groups we deepen discipleship, grow in biblical community and step out to share the gospel.
No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to help you take the next step in your relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that the best environment for significant spiritual growth to happen is in a place of authentic biblical community.
Most Life Groups have between 8 and 14 people in them.
Life Groups meet on various evenings during the week and it is the group members themselves that set their meeting day.
This varies from group to group, but most get together two to three times a month. Generally they meet for 1.5 - 2 hours.
Life Groups meet in homes throughout London, but especially in the northwest section.
Life Groups strive to work out a suitable childcare plan. This may involve individual or shared babysitting, or rotating supervision by the group members. We don’t want childcare concerns to hinder participation.
Life Groups study various materials that have been approved by our staff. We have a large selection of curriculum resources available in our library, and an even greater amount of online resources. Some groups work along with the Sunday morning sermon series.
Participation in a Life Group provides you with opportunities to:
Develop meaningful relationships with others.
Apply the truth of God’s Word to everyday life.
Minister to others through prayer and practical care.
Through these features we can live out the great commission (Matt.28:19-20) and the great commandment (Matt.22:37,39).
You can read about our mission and vision here. We challenge everyone who considers West Park their church to prioritize three regular engagements (in addition to their own personal spiritual practices):
Community – in Life Groups we experience authentic relationships and life transformation in smaller gatherings with others.
Discipleship – spending time directly in the Word and/or through a plethora of resources we deepen our growth.
Outreach – participating in opportunities for service we can serve others as well as share the gospel.
As you can see, Life Groups are absolutely vital to our church's overall value's and mission. They are at the heart of what it means to fully participate at WestPark.
