life groups

We believe circles are as important as rows

Watch the short video below for an invitation to Life Groups from Joshua & Nicole

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.
