LIFE GROUPS

At the heart of a healthy church is a sense of community

 

At the heart of a healthy church is a sense of community. We connect with God, and He connects us with His family. Christianity is a team sport, not a solo discipline. Together we inspire, encourage and hold each other accountable in our spiritual journey.

To help facilitate this sense of community we invite all who make us their church home to link with a Life Group. Groups meet at different days and times of the week, and vary in size – usually maxing out at around 12 people so that everyone participates.

Life Groups are the primary place where pastoral support and care happens during the tough times, and also the places where we celebrate life and forge meaningful friendships. Group activities typically include opportunity to prayer together and for one another’s needs, and also to study the Scriptures. Many groups discuss the teaching from the previous Sunday and how the principles taught can be applied.

Other times the dynamic of a our Life Groups are simply being together and having fun, or even doing projects together. They really are the heartbeat of our church community and we strongly encourage everyone to link with a group.

If you’d like to know more about our Life Groups and one you could connect with contact the Church Office (P: 07-838 0375, Ext 209; E: reception@hcbc.nz) and one of the Pastors will be in contact to discuss options with you.

ALPHA COURSE

Interactive sessions to allow exploration of the Christian Faith.

We love the Alpha Course!

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that allow people to freely explore the basics of the Christian Faith.

No pressure! – No follow up! – No charge!

On the Alpha course, guests are invited to freely explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over seven weekly sessions with a weekend away.

Each week we enjoy a free meal and a talk on subjects as diverse as “Who is Jesus?”, “How Can I Have Faith?” and “How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?” After the talk, we break into small groups to discuss the content of the talk and share our opinions.

The course is low-key, friendly and fun – and is supported by all major denominations of the Christian church.

Alpha is growing as a worldwide phenomenon – run in 169 countries and attended by over 22.5 million people.

No question is out of bounds, and participants are free to say as much or as little as they wish as they make up their own minds about the teachings of Jesus.

Course topics include:

Who is Jesus?

Why did Jesus die?

How can we have faith?

Why and how do I pray?

Why and how should I read the Bible?

Who is the Holy Spirit & What does He do?

How can I be filled with the Holy Spirit?

How does God guide me to make the most of my life?

Why and how should we tell others?

What about evil and does God heal today?

What about the church & telling others
