Background

The Source Community’s Faith and Friendship Groups, comprising of 6-12 members, meet weekly at the host’s home or in a church. Each group meets at a time/day convenient for the members – some groups meet during the day and some in the evening. The meetings are Christ-centred, encouraging every member to participate, to mature and to minister to each other. They last for approximately 1½ hours and are based around four components:

        Welcome: Refreshments and sharing
         — focusing on us.
        Worship:Prayer with music, psalms
         — focusing on Jesus.
        Word:Study of scripture
         — focusing on God’s word.
        Witness: Practical discipleship
         — focusing on our response
