If you're looking after little children during the day time, you're really welcome at Mini Phillies, our free 'stay and play' group. We have toys, singing, snacks and craft for the little ones, and sofas, hot drinks, and adult company for you
Life Groups are communities of 6-12 people meeting most weeks in homes and locations around Toxteth, and more recently on Zoom.
Life Groups are about friendships that help us follow Jesus. When we meet, Jesus speaks through the Bible to help us. But our groups are much more than Bible studies. They're places where we connect the good news of Jesus to each other's lives and put that gospel into practice together. That makes them ideal both for people already following Jesus and for people who want to know what following Jesus would mean for them.
Each group has its own personality – shaped by its members – but all have trained leaders who receive ongoing support and oversight. Therefore these groups are at the heart of our church’s pastoral care.

What to expect? We keep things simple and informal. People wear anything from T-shirts to suits. No-one has to say or do anything that might embarrass them. You are welcome to bring kids of any age and it doesn't matter if they make noise. Services normally run for an hour, and here is how we typically spend that time:
We share news We sing together We confess our sins The Bible is read aloud and preached Someone leads us in prayer People might be baptised or we might share the Lord's Supper We interview people
