Small groups

Sunday lunch group

Get together for lunch after church whenever we can

Baby Friendly Group

The Baby Friendly group, otherwise known as the “Wah, wah, wah, Thank God it’s Friday” coffee tea or milky morning meets meets on Friday mornings, at Elizabeth’s apartment just next to church and opposite Halle Tony Garnier around 9:30 to 11:30am (flexible time as babies require). We meet to share life, faith, prayer and… croissants!, because we believe it takes a village to raise a child and support a mum or dad or any person, really! We are currently studying The Lord’s Prayer by Brother John from Taizé. We also seem to inadvertently coordinate a traffic of baby/kiddie clothes and related material, and survival tips! Finally, it’s a baby friendly group but all are welcomed, with or without babies, we tend to talk about them but they’re not all we’re interested in! Please contact Kae at or leave a message on our church Facebook page and we’ll get back to you!

Reading Group

Our reading group meets once a month and enjoys stimulating discussion of a wide range of literature. To get the most out of our meetings, it is preferable (though not essential!!) to have read the book in question.

Meetings are held on Wednesday evenings at 19:45 at:
Le Bistro des Filles
9, rue du GARET – 69001 – LYON
Tel. 04 78 27 29 14

Ladies’ Fellowship

The Ladies Group welcomes all women who are available on Tuesday afternoons for a time of encouragement, study, and prayer. We meet at the church building in Gerland from 14h-16h. Our meeting schedule follows the school calendar with breaks during school holidays.

Men’s fellowship

The Men’s Group meets once a week for a brew and study and regularly for projects, pints, praying, pizza, pool and pioneering. Check out our specific website for dates and locations.

Worship Group Fellowship

The Worship Group Fellowship meets periodically on a Friday or Saturday evening.

The group consists of members, or potential members, of the worship group which leads the music and worship part of the Sunday morning church service. The group aims to study and meditate on God’s word together, to grow together as a group, to support, pray for and encourage one another in fellowship and, through praise and prayer, to learn how to worship God better. Although we take the opportunity to learn new songs, these meetings are intended to be more than practice sessions.

Anyone wishing to become a member of the Worship Group and willing to participate on a regular basis is welcome to contact us to discuss how they might contribute.

French conversation group

For those who feel they need a place to practice their French, as opposed to formal lessons in a language school, there is the opportunity to meet in a small group on Wednesday mornings between 9.15 and 11 in a café near Place Bellecour, for French conversation in a light-hearted atmosphere. There are two groups, one for beginners and one for more advanced learners.
