DOING LIFE TOGETHER

Being part of one of our small groups will help you build authentic friendships and grow in your faith. Small groups at Home Church are a place we can support one another, a place that feels like family.

WHAT HAPPENS IN SMALL GROUPS?

You’ve probably seen small groups meeting and not even realised it. A small group looks like friends having dinner, a group playing golf, people studying The Bible or friends reading through a great book together. At its core, a small group is a small gathering of people, and it is less about what you do and more about who you do it with. By participating in small groups, you can expect to connect with others through a common activity, engage in life giving conversation and request prayer.

HOW OFTEN DOES A SMALL GROUP MEET?

Our small groups meet for three terms a year—Jan-April, May-Aug and Sep-Dec. During the term, most groups meet once a week or fortnightly. Small groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL SMALL GROUP STAY TOGETHER?

Most small groups meet for a term. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly. Also, the term format allows you to try multiple groups each year. As relationships form, some groups choose to stay together for consecutive terms, but new members are always welcome.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY?

The truth is, not everyone will find the best fit with the first group they try. This is why we encourage you to select a few groups that interest you, contact the leaders and try out a couple different groups before choosing the best one for you. The simple strategy to finding success in small groups is to not give up. We believe there is a group that is right for everyone—including you!

LEADING A SMALL GROUP

Leading a small group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple—choose a topic that interests you and select a time and location to meet with others to share it. We give you essential tools to make your small group successful through Leader Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. We believe people’s lives are changed one group at a time by moving one step toward Christ, and as a small group leader you get to play an important role in that process.
