Life Groups

Life Groups are what we call our small groups at Christ Church. We meet all around the community and at different times during the week. Take a look below to find out why we think it's so important to meet throughout the week as well as Sunday.

To find out more about joining a Life Group at Christ Church Guildford, contact our Life Group Co-ordinators, Louise Kenyon or Mike Rigby

Five informal Life groups meet weekly or fortnightly on Tuesday evenings, in homes around the Parish, typically 8-10pm.

Wednesday evenings

Two friendly Life groups meet on a Wednesday evening in local homes, one meets monthly, while the other meets every week.  

Sunday evenings

Our Men’s Group meets every Sunday evening during term time for bible study, 8-9pm prompt, at Acre Holt, One Tree Hill, Guildford.  During the autumn term 2019 the group are exploring the books of Colossians & Philemon.

Informal monthly Men’s suppers are held on the last Friday of every month.

All men are welcome, contact Mike Rigby for details.



It is important in the life of Christ Church that we meet regularly on a Sunday but also that we devote time to support each other in faith during the week. The main aim of Life Groups is to study the Bible because we believe that it is through God's Word that we grow and are equipped in our Christian lives.  In a small group it is possible to learn from each other's perspectives on a passage, to ponder the Bible more slowly and apply it more personally than on Sunday in church. Members find great friendship, support and encouragement from being part of a small group, we hope that you will join one to suit you.  To join a group or find out more, get in touch with one of our Life Group Co-ordinators for an informal chat.
