Balham Baptist Church

Where diversity matters

LifeGroups

LifeGroups are a great way to build relationship within our church community. It's sometimes hard to get to know people in a large congregation, so meeting weekly in smaller numbers gives us the chance to really support and care for one another as we 'do life' together.

 

LifeGroups are a source of friendship, support and learning together. They can also be the key to developing connections with those who share your interests or are dealing with similar life issues. LifeGroups are also an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord.
