Small Groups...

Small Groups are the relational heart of the Church - it’s where people connect, share life and grow together. They consist of approximately 10-20 people who meet together on a regular basis around a shared interest or passion and are designed to help everyone in the Church, across every congregation to discover what God has put inside each one of us so that we live fruitful, effective lives for Him.

If you’re new to Church or would like to get to know some more people, joining a Small Group is a great place to start! To help make it easier to find the right Small Group for you, we've put each group into one of the following categories.

  • Connect - Church, but on a small scale! For people who want to develop deeper relationships with others of a similar life stage or passion.
  • Community - Based around a particular outreach, event or activity, these Small Groups have a more missional focus and outlook.
  • Equip - If you want to go deeper with God and with others we have a number of groups that meet to pray, study the Word and grow together.

As we launch this next season of Small Groups in the Church there are so many possibilities of how we can share life together, build each other up and reach out to people who don’t yet know Jesus.

Which Small Group will you join?

Sign up Sundays...

We're having two Sign Up Sundays on 22 and 29 January for you to find out about what's happening and to sign up for whichever group you’d love to be a part of.

If you're new to to Church, weren't around on these Sign Up Sundays you can still join a Small Group! Find a Small Group that's meeting in your area and when you've chosen one you'd love to be part of get in touch using the contact information listed below each group.

Small Group FAQs

What if I don't know which Small Group to sign up for?
Representatives from the various Small Groups will be on hand on the 2 Sign-Up Sundays for you to meet and ask questions about the group. Alternatively you can contact them using the details beneath each Small Group description.

What if I choose a group but don't like it?
That's fine - you don't have to stay! The important thing is that you find a Small Group where you are able to connect, relate and grow in faith with the other people in the group. You are very welcome to try a few!

Can I attend more than on Small Group?
Yes, feel free to sign up for any Small Group you'd like to regularly attend. Why not think about whether you have a non-church friend that may be interested too and bring them along. We recommend that you only sign up for a maximum of 3 Small Groups.

How long do the Small Groups run for?
We have 3 Small Group seasons each year which are usually 10-12 weeks long; one from the end of January to March; one from mid April - mid July and the other from the end of September to mid December. We hold 2 Sign-Up Sundays at the beginning of each season for you to find out what's happening and choose which group you’d like to be a part of.

If you have any other questions about Small Groups please speak to your Small Group Director (Horsham: Phil Pooley, Crawley: Rohan Andrew, Worthing: Andrew Boyd) or email: smallgroups@kingdomfaith.com.
