LifeGroups are where we can grow together in a smaller setting
At Southgate, we grow and connect in community throughout the week. We believe every person should be growing in their faith in a smaller setting. For kids, that's Sundays & Kidville GROW, for young adults that's Mondays, for students that's Tuesday night AMPED, for everyone else that's being connected in any of the groups below.
A Group for everyone
Study Groups are a great place to start growing in community with people at Southgate. You can choose from a variety of formats, including our LifeClasses, book studies, and Alpha.
Affinity groups are ongoing groups that gather together under shared interests or similar stages in life. Whether you have small children, are retired, or want to get together with other men or women, there is a group for everyone!
Home Groups are for people wanting to grow deeper with others and in their faith. We recommend that you attend Southgate for at least 6 months, and have formed strong relationships with others before starting or joining a home group.
Study Groups are a great place to start growing in community with people at Southgate. Sometimes it is easier to get to know people in smaller groups where there isn't a long time commitment. Study groups can vary from 5 weeks to 10 weeks. Some groups are more discussion lead, and some are classroom-style. Check out some of the classes we offer regularly, or contact Pastor Kevin if you think you might be interested in leading a study yourself!
UNDERSTANDING THE BIBLE
This class gives you the opportunity to explore some key questions to help you understand the Bible better. In this class we will be asking:
What is the Bible, and where does it come from?
What is the story that it is telling? And what is being communicated in every book of the Bible?
How can it help us in our everyday lives?
This class will be running Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30 (During Kidville Grow) starting October 18 Sign up HERE
Register for your space in our free Financial LifeClass "I Was Broke Now I'm Not". This 6-week class gives a great foundation of budgeting & financial tools for anyone at any life stage.
Alpha is a place to explore the Christian faith with others. Each session has time for connection, a talk, and space to discuss and ask questions. It is designed for people without a church background or who wouldn’t call themselves a Christian. It’s an opportunity to invite your friends to hear the gospel and explore a relationship with Jesus. You can even attend with them!
So I’m a Christian, who comes to church, who does good, who loves and abides, why can’t I find happiness? Joy? Why do I still struggle with depression? Anxiety? Impulsivity? At Soul Keepers we will explore what the Bible says about mental health.
We will be running this class on Thursday nights starting October 26. Sign up HERE
Wednesdays in Kemptville from 10:00-11:30am
Not enough sleep, feeding, changing, potty training, and tantrums don't need to keep you at home... find solidarity with other parents, swap tips, and get spiritual encouragement for this stage of life. Parents or guardians of babies and young kids can come get to know other parents and talk while your little ones play in a spacious room.

Home Groups are an opportunity to get to know people on a deeper level, while diving deeper into your relationship with God. We recommend that these groups be joined when you are willing to have a high level of commitment, and therefore it is wise to wait at least six months before joining or leading a LifeGroup. If you are considering joining one, or you would like to start one, please contact Pastor Kevin to begin that conversation.
