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.
Cornerstone Church Liverpool 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 pursue 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 everyday lives. Being part of a Gospel Community gives us the opportunity to live out the values of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ every day of the week and in every area of life.
When and Where?
We currently have nine Gospel Communities “doing life together." Each Gospel Community decides when and where to meet to share a meal and study God’s word based upon the sermon from that week. These Gospel Communities can be found in:
- Church Road
- Penny Lane
- Rose Lane
- Barndale Road
- Ramilies Road
- Wavertree Mystery
- Wavertree Picton
If you would like further details on the nearest Gospel Community to you, speak to one of the leaders at the Sunday gathering or contact us via email: email@example.com.
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 as adults and are always welcome at our gatherings.
