Connect Groups at Lichfield Christian Church
Connect Groups, as we call them, are the heart of our church. The goal of our Connect Groups is to connect with God and with others as we look at Holy Scripture thus encouraging us to love God and love one another in very practical ways. Connect groups are open and we welcome anyone who wishes to come to join us. It is a place where we fellowship with one another, support one another and care for one another. True friendships can be born here. A Connect Group consists of a time of Welcome where we start off with a cuppa. Then we move into a time of Worship usually through song. Next we have a time where we can discuss a short passage of Scripture from the Bible which is relevant to today. Finally, pray for one another and the needs of our friends. Participation is optional which means you can just come and watch if that is what you prefer. The length of a Connect Group is just over an hour. The “come as you are” atmosphere is casual, fun and relaxed yet informative, challenging and stimulating. We welcome anyone to “come and see” what a Connect Group is like. It is best to contact us if you would like to join us for the first time in order to confirm that the group is in fact meeting that week as some groups don’t meet every week (esp. during non-term time weeks) while some do. Also, location of the group can sometimes change but in general the groups meet as per below and the church calendar.
