Life at Antioch
Antioch was a town in Syria where the first Christians started going out into the world to tell other people about Jesus (Acts 11:20). We have the same focus - to go out and share the transforming love of Jesus with our community, in Wales and across the world!
Antioch is the name of our Church Family - we gather and meet together in Capel Salem every week.
We don’t just want to come to hear a good message on a Sunday (although we love it when we do!) – our heart is to let God’s spirit touch us and change us. After all, transformation begins with us.
To truly engage in the life that Jesus has for all of us, we can’t do it on our own – God designed us to love in community. One way we support each other is through small groups we call Tribes.
A Tribe is made up of a small group of folk from Antioch, and usually meet weekly or fortnightly. Each Tribe has its own Tribe Leader, who is the person that organises the group. Tribes are places to study the Bible together, reflect on what we hear on Sundays and also share what’s going on in our own lives. We need each other to walk through the tough times as well as the good, so Tribes are places we can get prayer and support in all sorts of ways.
To find out more about Tribes, talk to James Sheridan.
Another way of connecting is through the monthly Bible Book Club that meets at Capel Salem, where we study a book of the Bible together and share our thoughts with each other. If you want to find out about this group, please talk to Christine Daniel.
The women in our church get together to have breakfast together on a regular basis - to find out when this is happening see our Calendar of Events.
And talking of breakfast - we know that Jesus loved to eat with people! As a church family, we share lunch together, usually in the form of a bowl of soup or cold buffet, on a bi-monthly basis on a Sunday after the service; it is a casual affair and open to anyone. To find out when our next "Soup Sunday" is, check our Calendar of Events page.
