Life Groups

To get better connected and grow as a disciple of Jesus at GEBC, come and join one of our Life Groups. These groups are a great place to “do life” with your church family. At GEBC we believe in a healthy balance of UP, IN and OUT relationships:

UP = Our relationship with God (Love God)
IN = Our relationships with other Christians (Love Others)
OUT = Our relationship with the world (Serve the World)

Here are some of the GEBC Life Groups that meet regularly.

If you want to find out more, please contact the Church office 818 0770.
