LifePods

LifePods are the heartbeat of our church. They are small groups that meet in people’s homes during the week to build friendships, to support and encourage one another, and are the best way to feel at home in the church. LifePods are a safe and informal environment to learn and grow together through prayer, Bible study and discussion.
