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!

Global Engagement allows us to be Jesus to a stressed-out world
Near but Far
We live in world where our attention is bombarded by worldwide challenges: wars, plagues, terrorism, injustice, millions of refugees, environmental destruction, and government corruption. Here at home, we are grappling with materialism that co-exists in tension with the increasing spiritual and economic poverty of many. These needs can easily overwhelm us and may actually paralyze us into inaction, so that we are unable to become effective instruments of God’s transformation power. So how do we make a difference in our stressed out world? How do we as a church body advance His Kingdom in the nations? Read more…

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.

The journey toward freedom begins at Celebrate Recovery
Dealing with Hurts, Habits and Hang-ups
No one said life is easy, and it’s not! That’s why there’s Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery helps you break free from hindrances caused by hurts, habits, or hang-ups, in a confidential setting. Join us weekly and discover for yourself freedom as Jesus intended it!
Celebrate Recovery is currently on sabbatical through Fall 2017. We will keep you apprised of further developments as they become 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!
