Activities and events for Adults

3 types of groups

Classic Life Groups – These groups aim to help people grow in their love for God and His people. This is done through worship, practicing spiritual gifts, reading the Bible, and meeting one another’s need. If you are looking to grow in your Christian faith in general, sign up for one of these Life Groups.
Equipping Life Groups – Life is full of different stages. Some are expected, some are not; some are welcome, some are not. If you would like help to process where you currently are, or prepare for an anticipated stage of life, then sign up to one of these Life Groups.
Interest Life Groups – All of life belongs to God and can be done in a way that pleases Him and blesses the world. (1 Cor 10:31). Common interests help foster friendship… and friendship is the perfect foundation for discipling and caring for each other

To join any group please contact the host or co-ordinator of the group or email lifegroups@coshambaptist.org or call the Church Office on 023 9232 4688

Life Groups offer opportunities to encourage and support one another, occasions to study the Bible and pray for each other and times to ‘do life’ together!
