Places of Liberty, small groups

Back at the start of Liberty Church being birthed, a prophetic word was spoken into out house around 'Places of Liberty'.

Alongside our "Sunday expression", we have 'Places of Liberty' in the form of small groups taking places all over our city and further! They are a great place to build friendships, grow in faith, be involved in the life of the church and also invite friends to!

Winter Term 2021

Our Winter Term 2021 commences week beginning 25th January until week commencing 22nd March.

Some of our groups are at capacity for this term, but check out all the others which we would love you to be a part of below:

Divine Healing the Biblical Way

David Barclay & Phil Boalch

  • Location: Gaer Christian Centre
  • Day: Fridays
  • Day: 7.30pm

We will be joining together on Friday evenings to go through some teaching and training around the basic principles of divine healing, aiming to quickly equip Christians to walk in and administer healing to others. The aim is the bring knowledge of the power of the Holy Spirit and how it was never God's intention for us to walk powerless against the works of the enemy, declaring liberty of the captives.

We would ask you to commit to the 9 weeks and also some material within the week.

Family Group

Simon & Hannah Smith

  • Location: Outdoor Walks
  • Day: Sundays
  • Day: 2.30pm

Join us as families as we go for walks and talk about life and all God is doing! We will be walking on pram friendly terrain with a stop off for a hot drink (bring your own flask!), so wrap up warm!

FIGHT (Men's Group)

Martin Flynn

  • Day: 7pm

This study will uncover who you really are - men created in the image of God with a warrior’s heart.

Fight.

Keys to Freedom

Rob & Christine McFarlane

  • Location: Online via Zoom
  • Day: Mondays
  • Day: 7.30pm

Keys to Freedom, from Mercy UK, is an nine week interactive course that provides opportunity to learn the tools that God has made available to us through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It takes Biblical principles and applies them to our live to enable us to navigate our way into a place of freedom, wholeness and transformation.

The course does not bring instant answers or a formula to follow that guarantees a trouble free life but it will empower and inspire you with hope. The keys to freedom that we will unpack together during this nine week journey will educate, equip and empower you with tools that should you continue to use them, will bring lasting change and breakthrough.

The principles or keys that we will explore are:

  • Recognising the voice of God

  • Committing and connecting fully to Christ

  • Renewing your mind

  • Choosing to forgive

  • Healing life's hurts

  • Breaking generational patterns

  • Using your authority in Christ

  • Maintaining lifelong freedom

We will focus on one chapter each week, with 5 days of study and there will need to be some time set aside (perhaps 20-25mins each day) where you will study each key. You will be asked to look up passages in the Bible and challenged to apply the principles to your own life, with the opportunity to reflect and journal your responses as you go along.

We will meet each week to review the chapter and encourage one another in the journey. We ask you to commit to the full 9 weeks.

If you are interest in signing up for the course but have further questions, please drop us an email to [email protected]

(You will be required to purchase your own workbook at £8.00)

Every Man a Warrior is an incredible tool that points you towards Jesus, it's all about becoming and raising biblical men.

Kobby Poku

  • Location: Gaer Christian Centre, Newport
  • Day: Tuesdays
  • Day: 7.30-8pm

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Psalm 11:3

Our continual triumph in our Christian walk or journey is ultimately based on the solid foundation laid by Christ, which is seen through God's Character, His Word and the believers identity.

In the prayer small group, we will be focusing on these three key subjects which I call the 3 H's of prayer:

  • His Character

  • His Word

  • Him in us (Our identity in Him)

(After the small group we will be joining together with others to pray together from 8-9pm at the Gaer CC)

We would love to see you there!

Raising Faith

Jody Jones & Lana Fisher

  • Location: Online via Zoom
  • Day: Thursdays
  • Day: 7.30pm

The Raising Faith sessions are all about equipping and empowering Christian families to create strong and healthy foundations of faith.

We'll be chatting about topics such as:

  • Building faith through everyday life

  • Different ways we connect with God

  • Dealing with doubts and questions

  • Belonging in the church

When we are able to, we also hope to gather as families throughout this term for a walk outdoors.

Soul Care - Slowing down for connection

Heath van Staden

  • Location: Gaer Christian Centre, Newport
  • Day: Thursdays
  • Day: 7.45-9.15pm

How do we stay healthy, while navigating life and our journeying realities? You are a new creation, whom the Holy Spirit dwells within, and you are able to have those real conversations which matter.

Together we are going to slow down to connect and begin to understand the gift of limitations and much more. Let's explore the scripture together and make it practical.

Victorious Living

Paula and Michael Barnes

  • Location: Online via Zoom
  • Day: Thursdays
  • Day: 7.30pm

Over this term, we will be focusing on Ephesians 6:10-18 and living victoriously. We will start off with getting to know each other and run through how to study the Bible and the study outline. After this we will all focus on the scriptures for 7 weeks and discuss what we see, how we can apply it to our lives and pray together.

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Phil Boalch

  • Location: Gaer Christian Centre, Newport
  • Day: Wednesdays
  • Day: 11am - 12.30pm

Our Wednesday morning study group will be focusing on "Walking in Love", based around 1 Corinthians 13. We will be looking at what love is, what love is not, love in relationship to spiritual gifts and also how do we walk in love.

There will be a place to discuss and ask questions... we would love to see you there!

Wednesdays Together

Gaz & Lois Hillier

  • Location: Online via Zoom

When we can, we would love to gather as families for a walk!
