Sharing Life Together
To see every believer at New Castle maturing in Christ through active participation in a small group of the church called Life Groups.
We believe that growth in spiritual maturity effectively takes place in community with a smaller group of believers sharing life together. These groups (6-16 adults with some including children) put the Christian faith into practice together.

Why do you call them 'Life Groups' instead of 'Small Groups'?
The name of such groups varies from church to church. We call them 'Life Groups' because we want those who participate to learn the joy of sharing life together with other believers.
What is your purpose for these groups?
The primary purpose is to foster growth in spiritual maturity as the group grows in relationship with one another.
What kinds of things do these groups do?
The groups have six primary elements which are: fellowship, prayer, topical studies, evangelistic efforts, serving one another, and growing in life surrender as worshippers.
How often do they meet?
Most meet twice a month but some meet weekly or monthly.
