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!

This group is all about stepping out! On a Sunday afternoon we will be meeting in Newport town centre to pray and talk around some of the examples where people have stepped out in the Bible. We will then spend some walking the streets discussing what we have talked about and trusting the Holy Spirit to direct us as we have conversations with people we meet. It’s all about being available for God to use us and stepping out!

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Phil Boalch

  • Location: Liberty Church, Gaer Park Drive, Newport
  • Day: Wednesdays
  • Day: 11am - 12.30pm

Why do we need armour? Is it something that we have automatically? Where do we find it? How do we use it?

During this study we will be answering these and many more questions as we dig into the truths regarding the armour of God. We will also look at the spiritual warfare that reveals the necessity of wearing the armour and how that applies to us on a daily basis.

(If you are unable to be with us in person at this time, Zoom will be available)

Worship

Adam & Lizzy Howard

  • Location: Liberty Church, Gaer Park Drive, Newport
  • Day: Thursdays
  • Day: 7.30pm

If you have a heart for worship and a desire for community then why not come along to our worship Team Nights every Thursday evening. Maybe you have been playing guitar in your bedroom or singing in the shower but want to take the next step. Perhaps you are interested in sound design or want to serve on our visual team, come along and we would love to help you find your space within our team. You don’t need to be Mozart or Jimi Hendrix, but a degree of instrumental capability would be preferable, for all other elements such as words and sound, training will be provided.

We would love for you to become part of our worship family.

All the details

So how do the groups run?

Our groups run in ‘terms’ throughout the year (Sept-Nov, Jan-April, May-July) for approx. 10 consecutive weeks. Each term may have similar groups running or completely new ones to sign up to! Our small groups are a great place to build friendships, grow in faith, be involved in the life of church and also invite friends to!

How do I choose a group to join?

You can join a group based on location, demographic, focus, day etc. The choice of group you join is completely up to you! As most of our groups have limited space, we ask that when signing up for a group you give your 2 preferred options. This means we can make sure everyone has a group that they can join!

How do I sign up for a group?

The best way is through our website www.libertychurchuk.com/placesofliberty. Alternatively you can drop us an email at [email protected] or call 07943 501 007 for more information and to sign up.

Can I attend more than one group?

Yes you can, however we would encourage you to commit to one group for the 10 weeks rather than attend several occasionally. If you are interested in attending more than one, please let us know when you sign up.

What happens after I have signed up?

Between 25th April and 9th May 2021, you have the opportunity to sign up to a small group. Throughout the following week, leading up to the start of the groups, you will be contacted by your new group leader(s) to welcome you to the group. This week allows us time to administer all the sign ups and make sure people have a group to attend for the term.

Do you have an idea for a new group?

We would love to hear your ideas, no matter how crazy, ordinary or out of the box they may be.

If you have an idea and/or would be interested in running a group in the future, please get in touch by emailing: [email protected]
