Glo is one of Above Bar Church’s missional communities. It’s madeup of a bunch of enthusiastic, and slightly crazy, twenty-somethings.
As a community, we seek to encourage, support, and love one another, and to grow together. We come from all sort of backgrounds and life situations, so if you’re in your twenties, you qualify – we’d love you to be a part of our community!
We meet together every Wednesday evening. On the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, we have Bible studies, which follow the same rhythm as the other church home groups. We nearly always share a meal together beforehand. Currently, we have five Glo home groups that meet in homes located all over Southampton, which means you’ll never be too far from one.
On the first, third, and occasional fifth Wednesday, we meet for social events. These can be anything from a board games evening or film night to pizza making, Laser Quest, or go-karting – anything that lets us have fun together and invite our friends along at the same time.
And there’s more
Alongside our regular Wednesday nights, we also have some other exciting activities, such as involvement with social action projects and enjoying our annual weekend away together. As well as being a lot of fun, the weekend away is always full of great teaching and the opportunity to get to know people better.
Every three months, we hold a Glo Worship evening at Mettricks coffee house in town where we meet together, worship together, and invite guest speakers to share with us – with the added bonus of great tea, coffee, and cake! On Sunday evenings, you’ll also find a group of people head to the pub or Sprinkles after the evening service.
A strong community
We recognise that, as twenty-somethings, we’re all in different seasons of life and there’s often a lot of change. Having a strong community of friends around you, praying for you, encouraging you in your walk with Jesus, and sharing life together is what we’re about. We believe God is calling us as a generation and a church to live out authentic community.
If you’re in your twenties, whether you’re new to the church or have been here a while, I’d really encourage you to come along and see for yourself. We’d love to meet you and tell you more about what we get up to.
We’d really value the prayers of the church family that as a community we would continue to be welcoming in a way that demonstrates God’s love for people. Please pray that we would continually seek God’s wisdom when it comes to making decisions about Glo as we grow in numbers, and that our hearts and minds wou
ld remain fixed on Jesus. Finally, pray that, above all, we would continue to love each other, encourage each other, and be accountable to one another in a way that glorifies God!
