life groups

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

Where like minded believer, can develop genuine friendships, experience authentic Christian community and grow in our understanding of how the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Waipuna Chapel Life Groups meet through out the week, on campus and in private homes. Check out our Life Group directory below and 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.
