It is often said that in most churches 80 percent of the work is done by 20 percent of the people. Much of it is left to the paid staff and a few volunteers. Home Groups are designed to change that mentality. Within every church there is an amazing variety of giftings, often hidden and unused inside the people.
Many times there are no opportunities given to discover or express these God given talents. In a small group setting you have a 'nursery' for emerging gifts. Each person in a home group has a unique contribution to make, they have a wonderful opportunity to enrich the lives of fellow believers.
Home Groups and fellowship go together. They are two sides of the same coin. Our corporate gatherings on a Sunday provide a context for worship and preaching that a small group cannot do. However, the home group midweek gatherings also provide a dynamic for intimate worship, practical teaching and fellowship which the larger meetings can never do.
Home groups run weekly on Tuesdays at 8pm in various locations.
