Project Description

Life Groups at Woodville Baptist Church

Life Groups at Woody are a great place for building relationships and supporting and encouraging one another as we grow in faith. We currently have four life groups, meeting on weekday evenings.

Some of the groups may have a waiting list, but if you are interested in joining, let us know.

The groups aim to reflect 5 core values –

  • Christ at the centre
  • A community of honest, supportive relationships
  • Every member growing in our faith
  • Every member using and developing our gifts
  • Every member involved in sharing our faith with others

The current groups are:

Framework for Life: Biblical Discipleship and Discussion

Leaders: Rob Knowles, Howard & Annette Dickins.

This group aims to bridge the gap between the world of the Bible and our own contemporary culture through the examination of holy scripture. Mission involves sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ which concerns his identity, life, death, resurrection, and future role as Judge of the world. God’s plan contrasts utterly with our trans-post-modern world, which we must learn to interpret if we are to understand how precisely to apply the Gos- pel of Jesus Christ in mission.

Meeting as a ‘house group’ every three-four weeks, a ‘Theology Night’ every six weeks and at regular church prayer meetings.

Freedom in Christ

Leader: Denise Davies

This group meets weekly and uses material from the award-winning Freedom In Christ Discipleship Course; a proven and effective way to help Christians become fruitful disciples.

It involves 13 sessions and a personalsession of ministry called the ‘Steps to Freedom in Christ.’

A number of people in Woody have completed this and found it very helpful.

Caru (Welsh for ‘Loved’)

Leaders: Anthony and Ingrid Patterson.

The focus of the group is help each other grow in our development of an authentic relationship with God, each other and with people within the communities we’re part of.

Our heart is to enable each other to grow in our understanding of biblical truth, and to discover our gifts and the ways God is encouraging us to use them daily.

British Sign Language Group

Leaders: Betty and Jonathan Bosman.

Every week we learn how to use sign language in church and elsewhere, including singing worship songs and praying in sign.

During the holidays we meet at the pub or each other’s homes for social evenings, getting to know each other better in sign! This course helps people build confidence in communicating with the Deaf and starting to learn to interpret.
