Life Groups

handsSmall groups are one of the key building blocks of the church. At St Mags we call these groups "Life Groups". They provide one of the best places for people to connect with God, connect with each other and grow as followers for Christ in everyday life.

We encourage you to think about which group you are involved in each term. 

Being in a life groups helps to:

  • Grow friendships
  • Grow in knowledge of the Bible
  • Allow you a time and place to express your spiritual gifts
  • Equip you to serve your community
  • Help you feel at home if you are new to the area

Meeting in small groups is biblical (Acts 2), practical and proven to deepen relationships and help you grow as a christian.  Small groups provide the cement of the church.  Everyone is invited to join a life group - sign up below.

Barton Life Group

Lead by husband and wife team, Dean and Ruth Allison.

Do you sometimes feel a bit lost and lack direction?  God wants to guide us through the ups and downs of life and has given us the Bible to do just that-  It's like a reliable map from which you can navigate the right way forward, a real traveller's companion.

Join us every Tuesday (Term time only) from 7.45-9.30pm

'Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path'

This quote is found in the Bible: the book of psalms, Chapter 119, verse 105
