What is a Home Group? Home groups play a central and vital role in the life of our church. While we are all one family, we believe it is important to make connections and form community in smaller groups. This allows us to get to know one another, support one another, pray for one another and encourage one another at a level not possible in the fellowship time on a Sunday. Home Groups are a place to draw closer to God and grow in Christian maturity and understanding as we explore the Bible and seek to follow Jesus together.
What happens at a Home Group meeting? All of our Home Groups are different, but they all include friendship, Scripture, Prayer, and usually biscuits and cake! Vitally they help us to apply the Bible to our everyday lives, and offer a safe place to share our struggles, celebrations, and life. Some of our groups follow material based on our current sermon series, to allow them to go deeper into the Scripture we explored together on Sunday. Others explore other books of the Bible, or use material and DVDs to explore relevant topics to that particular group. We also encourage our groups to be missional. To think practically how they can follow and share Jesus with others together.
How can I join a Home Group? Just get in touch with us. You can email us, or even better fill out this form, and someone from the church will be in touch with you. You can also talk to the pastor, or one of our leadership team on a Sunday morning. We will do everything we can to find a group that works for you.
When and where do Home Groups meet? We have a variety of groups that meet in different locations each week, all around the Axe Valley. Most meet in homes, but some make use of the church facilities, or meet in the community. Some meet in the day, some in the evening. There will be a group that works for you, and if there isn't we are often forming new groups. Check out the map below to see where some of our groups are already meeting.
