Small groups are central to our life as a church family. In a large church, they are one of the primary places where we can grow together in Christ, and support, serve, equip and encourage one another in the Christian life. Making the Bible, prayer and relationships our priorities enable us to do this.
There are many benefits of joining a group. Not least is the opportunity it gives to get to know other members of the church family at a much deeper level than is ever possible on a Sunday. But it is also about what you can add, what you can give and what you can do to support others.
The Christian life is personal but it is not private. We grow in our discipleship as we grow together. We are all different, with different schedules, different preferences – but our aim is to be built up and become mature (Ephesians 4 v 12) and continue to live in him, rooted and built up (Colossians 2 v7).
