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).

We have several midweek life groups in people’s homes as well as interest life groups. All groups will be open to all ages. The midweek life groups will run term time until July 2019 (a full ministry year) to provide continuity, while our popular interest life groups will continue to provide you with a chance to try new things and/or provide you with a forum for introducing friends to Mariners who are perhaps not yet ready for Alpha.

Midweek and Interest Life Groups will meet alternate weeks, so you can attend both types of group but still only be out once a week. There will be 5/6 weeks of each type of life group in the Autumn term.

Purpose of Midweek Life Groups
  • Meaningful friendships can develop (in a way that brief encounters on Sun does not allow). To socialise and have fun, is another way to put it!
  • Mutual support and encouragement. Pastoral care for more challenging needs is available elsewhere in the church
  • Learning and growing together in the Christian faith. You might look at a book of the Bible, eg Acts. We’ll be preaching through this on Sunday mornings. Alternatively, you might look at a theme from the Bible, eg prayer or spiritual gifts.
