Life Groups

What’s a Life group?

A life group is a group of people from UCC who gather together at someone’s home to discuss, pray, eat and study the Bible together (usually using materials for the sermon from every previous Sunday). Participating in a life group helps you to build relationships with others while growing as a Christian.

What kinds of groups does UCC have?

UCC has different kinds of life groups gathering weekly or every other week around the capital area. We have groups for men and ladies, mixed groups and groups targeted for families. Check out the list of life groups by clicking the button below.
