There are currently 17 Life Groups at United. They meet on different days at different times and venues. Some of the groups follow a DVD series, others study a selected book of the Bible. Although there is a facilitator leading each group, healthy discussion and honest questing is encouraged. These Life Groups are places of sharing and caring, fellowship and confidentiality.

It is always special to see how people bond with each other and grow closer to the Lord as they do life together.


There are lists at the back of church that one can look at Bevan Sylvester can be contacted for more information, or complete the form below.


Life Groups are a vital part of our journey together at SWUC  and also to our spiritual growth. Everyone is encouraged to join one!


This is a group of men that meet monthly for coffee and fellowship. These meetings take place on the last Saturday of the month at 08:00.

Team leader: Chris van Rooyen


Over and above our regular Sunday teachings we offer various opportunities for people to learn. Some of the topics we have covered recently are teachings on the Gospel of John, the Holy Spirit, the church. Workshops such as "Guilt and Shame", a counselling course and sexuality seminar all fall into this category. Some of the courses we present on an ad-hoc basis include the "Parenting Course", and "Marriage Preparation Course". We try to advertise well in advance so that people can sign up in time to join, learn and grow. Service opportunities include setting up for the seminar, or possibly leading a talk of interest.


Connections is the comprehensive Resource Centre we have available here at United. It has many helpful books, DVDs and other material one can use to enhance their relationship with God. There are some folk who assist at Connections, but we need more helpers/volunteers. There is a special section in Connections with material for Life Groups.
