Home Fellowship Groups
In a growing church it is essential to be a part of a smaller caring community. A very fruitful church leader of the past, John Wimber, once said that “People come to church for many reasons but they stay for only one, relationship.” Making friends is said to be the key factor in 85% of people’s decision to stay in church or not. Growth Groups provide both a great context for friendship, but also a great tool for discipleship. They are the principal means by which we pastor, support and care for one another. They are not one programme among many that we support as a church; they are the heart of the church.
