Home groups, house groups, small groups, cell groups, clusters. They are known by a variety of names, but most churches have them and they can be a tremedous help for Christians wanting to study the Bible together and build community. Leading a home group can seem like a daunting task, but it need not be. I’ve been involved with home groups for 25 years. Mrs A and I are currently taking a sabbatical from leading a home group I started nearly ten years ago and thought I would take this opportunity to share my experiences.
Over the next several weeks I’ll be writing a series of posts covering all aspects of running home groups. Whether you lead a home group yourself, or are a member and would like to get more out of it, then there will be some helpful advice for you in this series. Here are just some of the subjects which I’ll be covering in greater detail:
- The initial setting up of the group
- So, what should we study?
- How to keep it fresh.
- We don’t have to sing do we?
- When it’s time to multiply.
