Life Groups: What to do
LIFE GROUPS What to do 1

Apostles were the ‘sent out ones’ of the early church. Paul and the other apostles undertook great journeys of faith. They found ways to tell people about the message of Jesus and took time to show the love and power of Jesus in many communities and villages. Dignity has developed Journey, a course to help you follow in the footsteps of Jesus’s earliest followers. We want you to learn how to take that step for yourself. You will be able to do the learning right where you are, even with the friends around you. As the course progresses you will share the message and everyday love of Jesus to the villages and communities around you.

Life Groups: What are they? How do they work?

There are a few simple principles at the heart of every Life Group. If you want to understand or share these in a bite-size format, this leaflet is just what you need!

Love Your Village

Love Your Village is a 10 week study and group discussion resource that not only helps people to understand what they could do in their community, but more importantly, why they should do it. Each study session includes whole passages from the Bible and activities designed to help people interact with the Bible, each other and God. Illustrations from every day life, memory verses, sketches and interactive prayer are used to bring the group together and make everyone feel involved. Every week there is also an application session, to help apply the study material to everyday village life.
