New Small Groups Coming April 2018

Hello and thanks for visiting our Small Groups page.

We recently introduced in church the exciting, new way we are going to be running small groups.
Now you've come to just the right place to find out some more detail of what's going to be happening in the coming weeks;

The vision of this new rhythm is to make sure every person who comes along to our church family can feel welcomed and connected.

We want to start with Sign up Sundays, with 10 or more different groups available, on Sunday 15th and Sunday 22nd April.
This will be your opportunity to sign up in person or online to a small group that you choose.

There will be a 3 chilli system to show the depth of each group, so if you're exploring faith or your a new believer a 1 chilli may be best for you. If you want to go a bit deeper, a 2 or 3 chilli group may suit you.

Each group will run for approximately 12 weeks, some may be fortnightly. The time and day will be decided by the leaders of the groups and communicated clearly along with the information about the course on the sign up Sundays.

We encourage everyone to sign up for one group so that everyone has a chance to be part of a group. We will also encourage group leaders to have between 14-16 people in their groups where this is possible.

We will be enjoying rest as a church between the cycles that run. We will also be encouraging rest cycles for all leaders, so the groups available for this cycle may not be available in other cycles.

For more information please do click on the link for the video with our lovely faces on it :) Or catch it on the King's Church youtube channel.

We hope you're excited for this change! Please let us know if you have any questions by using the button below.
I'm interested in hearing more about small groups

Small Groups

We believe that church is not something we do, but rather something that we are. We can't possibly try and do all the things we should be doing as a church just on Sunday mornings. Small groups are the church body broken down into smaller groups. An opportunity to build friendships, worship God in an intimate setting, for learning, and a support as we try to make a difference in the world.

There are loads of small groups that meet each week on different days and at different times. Using the links below you can look at each small group, when they meet and any other additional information that might be helpful.

If you don't know which group to join, you can use the button below to send us a message and we will get back to you and help you find a small group.
I would like to find out more to join a group
