What are they?
As important as Sundays are, we believe that authentic community goes deeper than meeting once a week. Throughout the week we meet in homes across the area in ‘Gospel Communities’ where we gather to share food, pray with each other, study the bible and grow deeper in our knowledge and love for God.
We are committed to filling ordinary life with Gospel intentionality, pastoring one another with the Gospel and sharing the Gospel with unbelievers. We challenge one another to be sacrificial, servant-hearted, risk-taking and flexible because the Gospel has priority over our comfort, preferences, security and traditions. We will not let Christian activity be just one part of our lives.
Liberti Church is made up of Gospel Communities, who care, love, support, encourage and challenge each other through spending time in God’s word, praying, eating, socialising with friends both Christian and non-Christian and “doing life together” throughout the week. This cannot be done through one weekly meeting alone, therefore Gospel Communities is the way we intentionally puruse one another and the lost with the Gospel. Our Gospel Communities will gather formally one night a week for food and seek to apply God's Word taught on a Sunday into our lives.
Gospel Communities and Children?
Being a part of a Gospel Community is not about attending another meeting, it is about doing life intentionally with others. That involves our children as well. Children are just as much a part of the Gospel communities and are always welcome at our gatherings. Also, children often give people a great reason to meet up, go the park, go swimming, have coffee with friends, neighbours and others from the Gospel Community.
