A vital part of church life at CCB as we meet to study the Bible, apply it together, and pray for one another in the light of how God has spoken to us. Small groups are often the best way in which people are loved & cared for.
A RANGE OF OPPORTUNITIES TO GATHER
Small groups are the best way to get to know each other at Church. Spending time together, in God’s word, each week. Praying for and supporting each other between Sunday’s where normal life happens. We offer a variety of options to suit different needs.
‘Knowing God’ is the name we’ve given to the small groups which meet centrally on Wednesday nights. Many folk come straight from work, so refreshments are served before we study God’s word together in small groups and pray. At KG we study some of the most foundational Bible books together – in recent years we have looked at Exodus, Mark, Romans, and 1 Corinthians. We encourage all those who are new to CCB to join a KG group, as it is the best way to get to know many others in the church family.
Growth Groups are what we call the small group Bible studies that meet in people’s homes on various weeknights. Many churches would call these ‘home groups’, but we resisted that temptation because we wanted a name which reminded us of their chief purpose. We want to grow in Christ – in knowledge, in godliness, in maturity and in relationship with one another. God willing these groups help us do that.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
The women’s bible study meets on Wednesday mornings during term time. Many of the women who attend are mums who would struggle to make an evening small group, but all women are welcome, regardless of whether or not you have little ones tagging along! A crèche is provided for those with young children.
On the first Wednesday of each month, instead of small groups, the whole church comes together to pray. We give thanks for God’s work amongst us, and we petition him for the needs of the church, our mission partners, and believers around the world.
