We believe life-change most often occurs when truth is shared in the context of a relationship (Acts 2:41-47). Small groups are an ideal environment for truth and relationships to come together, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to transform us into the image of Christ. Our vision is to see community groups from throughout the five county regions of Living Hope. We hope to see people join a community group near their home, so as to reach out into their community with the grace and truth of Jesus.

Small groups at Living Hope generally meet for about 12 weeks, usually in someone’s home and discuss Biblical teachings and grow together as they grow closer to Christ.


Acts 2:46 And they met in the Temple and house to house
