life groups

We believe that spiritual growth happens best in the context of small intimate gatherings

Where like-minded believers can develop genuine friendships, experience authentic Christian community and grow in our understanding and application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Waipuna Chapel Life Groups meet throughout the week, on campus and in private homes. Click here to view a  Life Group directory and locate one where you can get connected.


Many of our Life Groups choose to do our weekly sermon based studies.

Each week we  post  Life Group Study questions based on the content of the weekend teaching. These studies are a great way to  help you dig deeper in the text and to discuss your questions and observations with your group.
