Small Groups

We’re not a church with small groups, we are a church of small groups! We believe that, like the early church, people need to be invested life on life, as they follow Jesus in step with the Spirit. Therefore, we meet in homes regionally to be united in the application of God’s word, persistent in prayer and consistent in love as we mission together. (Acts 2:42-47)

Mission


Make Disciples of Jesus, Like Jesus Did (Great Commission – Matthew 28:16-20)

Method


Worship like Jesus, do Community like Jesus and do Mission like Jesus

Definition


Regionally based communities that are united weekly in the application of God’s word, persistent prayer and consistent love as they mission together.
