The most important part of any local church, and life in general for that matter, is relationships! What kinds of relationships? Real relationships that encourage us to grow spiritually and know God intimately. Besides loving God Himself, Jesus’ first commandment was to love each other. Our Friends Groups are all about relationships and learning to love people and serve them as Jesus did. Belonging to a group of like-minded people who genuinely love and care for each other, enables those who are new to The King’s Chapel to get connected and find belonging— especially those who feel isolated or live away from family and friends.
Everyone at The King’s Chapel is encouraged to be an active part of a group – from new attenders to long-time members. You are welcome and wanted at any of our Friends Groups!
These small home fellowship groups meet for the purpose of:
- Caring for people
- Making disciples
- Receiving personal ministry
- Growing in Christ through learning and applying the Word of God
- Discovering and using spiritual gifts
- Promoting friendship
- Build community
- Mentoring future leaders
Why Friends Groups?
Continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. NKJ
What is a Friends Group?
A Friendsgroup is a small home fellowship group of around 5 to 15 people led by one or more leaders.
What happens at a Friends Group?
Fellowship, worship, group discussion of the Word, and personal prayer – all within about an hour and a half.
Why do I need to be in a Friends Group?
It is part of the vision of our church. We all need a pastor to care for us and teach us to use our God-given gifts. We also need to have real relationships with others in our local church and endeavor to be a blessing in their lives too. Friends groups help everyone in the church to feel as if they belong as it creates opportunity for friendships to grow as we all grow together in our walk with Jesus.
How do I dress and what do I bring?
Dress casual. Bring yourself and your Bible if you would like.
May I bring a friend the first time I come?
Of course! You are welcome to bring a friend anytime.
Can I get prayer for my personal needs?
Yes! If you want to be prayed for, just ask. Our Rock Groups are the best place for personal prayer.
