Life Groups – Overview

 

At Mariners, we run a wide range of Life Groups for people of faith and for people of none! The main purpose of the groups is to provide ways of connection in a society where there is an epidemic of loneliness, and not just among the elderly.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • All Life Groups will run termly for between 8-10 weeks only. They will have a clear start and end date.
  • People then sign up for groups for the next term. You’ll need to do this, even if you want to stay in the same group.
  • The same group might run the following term, but it might not. New groups might be introduced. It is very fluid!
  • The choice of groups will fall into four categories:
  1. Course Life Groups, eg Alpha, Keep your Love On, Apologetics, Money course.
  2. Faith Life groups, with a focus on a Bible book or theme, or a Christian book.
  3. Interest Life groups, eg cycle repairs, health & nutrition, badminton, prayer walking, helping refugees, serving at Gloucester Foodbank.
  • Details of the Life Groups under each of these categories can be found under separate tabs on this website under ‘What’s On’.
  • Each group will only run in a given term if there is enough take up for it.
