Life Groups: doing life in community
Being the Church in the Neighbourhood
Life Groups are about doing life together. They’re about being family, servants, and missionaries within our church and for our communities. What a great place to discover how Jesus intended the church to live out its faith. Life Groups meet in homes and are oriented around scripture, prayer, fellowship, and service. Many Life Groups in our region are waiting to welcome you!
Check out or join Life Groups in your neighbourhood.

Marriage Ministry for couples dating, engaged, and married
Discovering God’s Greater Vision for Marriage
No one goes into marriage thinking of divorce. But statistics show most marriages end in divorce. We’re determined to end that cycle! We offer ministries for couples who are dating, engaged, newly married, and those farther along in their marriage. Our approach is thoroughly biblical, takes place in the context of relationships, and is reliant upon God’s Spirit to transform lives and marriages.
Stay informed for upcoming Marriage Matters classes, which will be announced as soon as available.
Young adults in small group and large group community
Sharing Life and Growing Together to new levels of commitment
Connection and community are essential parts of Christian community, and life in general! We want to make sure that our young adults find that depth of relationship here at Forward. Eikon (our young adults ministry), is built around a number of Life Groups that meet regularly in homes. These groups share life, meals, and God’s word, and together grow to new levels of commitment to following Jesus.
We also gather periodically to celebrate, worship, and serve together in as a group. These events remind us that, while so much of Christian discipleship happens in small communities, we are all part of a larger group of people serving Jesus and working to bring His Kingdom to earth. Check our our Facebook page, to see upcoming events – both Kitchener and Cambridge people welcome!
Contact Kevin as your first connection to Eikon.
Women’s Ministry for becoming a Godly Woman
My Identity in Christ Alone
Women’s Ministry is about finding our identity in Christ. In a society that tends to treat women as commodities for consumption, it’s all the more important to help establish strong, godly women who are unwavering in their faith despite obstacles put in front of them.

Life Studies for becoming a Godly Man
Standing Firm in Christ
Being a true man is modelling your life after Jesus. Jesus taught us to love, serve, and disciple others. We want to encourage and equip men to rise to this calling. Men’s studies provide a context for you to grow in your faith journey through the study of God’s word, prayer, and character-sharpening relationships. The end goal is to walk as Jesus walked, in resolute commitment to fulfill God’s purpose here on earth!
