What are Community Groups?
Community groups are small groups (6-16 people) of believers from BBC that meet intentionally each week in homes across the city, with the purpose of forming gospel-centred communities that are on mission for God. Community groups create a space for us to love and serve one another, using the spiritual gifts, time, energy and resources that God has given us. It’s a place to know others and to be known, in authentic, accountable, loving and Christ-honouring friendships that model to the world what the kingdom of God is like.
Why be in one?
In Matthew 28 Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples. So community groups serve as a significant avenue for discipleship and form a crucial sense of ‘family’ within a bigger church.
Who should be in one?
The gospel is good news for everyone, and it unites people of all ages, races, economic and social backgrounds. So, community groups are for everyone, whether you have walked the Christian life for years, or are just investigating the claims of Christ.
Where do they meet?
The most effective and authentic community groups arise from being in your local area. It’s practically easier for you to meet regularly and you can also then collectively impact your neighbourhood for Christ. We also do have some age-related groups in different suburbs for those who don’t mind travelling a bit further.
When do they meet?
Formally, community groups meet midweek. Each group decides on its own day and time. Joining a Community group is essential to your Christian growth and to mission.
