Small Groups at LRBC

There are plenty of opportunities to gather in Small Groups throughout the week.
We have regular adult groups for prayer, worship, communion, discipleship and study. We also have social and fellowship groups including walking groups and curry nights to highlight a couple.

Small Groups Test (Feb 2022)

We are exploring the migration of Small Groups into ChurchSuite and making them available to Church Members and Regular Attendees in the My ChurchSuite app. We are starting with a small number of current groups. You can find them in the app via the new ‘Small Groups (test)’ tab.

If you don’t have the app installed on your smartphone or tablet you can also login here.

You can see the current list of Small Groups within the test here.
