LIFE Groups and Community Bible Study

LIFE: Learning, Intercession, Fellowship, Evangelism

We encourage everyone who attends Wycliffe to become part of a LIFE Group.

These are groups of 8-12 people, who meet together weekly for friendship and fellowship, for prayer and Bible study together.

East of Reading

We meet together on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm to 9.30pm.   Our age ranges from 20 to 50 plus years.

Our evenings are a mix of Bible study, prayer and sharing.   Our aim is to walk alongside one another and to bring God’s love to each other through the joys and challenges of our everyday lives.    Socials have included meals, dog walking, river swimming, bowling and tea and crumpets.


We meet every Wednesday, rotating between East Newtown and Earley.

We have a great mix of ages and ethnic backgrounds and love to chat, worship, pray and study the Bible together.

Earley & Wokingham

We meet on Fridays at 8pm in the Wokingham area.

We focus on prayer, Bible study and fellowship.   We are a group made up of mostly families with young children and the kids come along too!   Most of us are originally from Asia but we are not exclusive!

Taking Time Out

We meet at Wycliffe every Tuesday in term time at 10am – 11.30am in the New Room. We are a group of Mums (but Dads are welcome too!)

We meet to study the Bible, pray for each other as we navigate the journey of parenting.

Children play around us as we study, so the atmosphere is chaotic but relaxed!

Come when you can and go when you need to.
