House groups have been a key part of Moortown Baptist Church’s programme for almost half a century, and are an excellent way to meet other people and grow together spiritually. So if you’re not already in a group, please consider getting involved!
The groups – there are eight in total – meet on weekday evenings and they vary in size from about 6 to 20 people.
What are house groups for?
It’s hard to be a Christian on your own. We’re made to live out and work out our faith in community.
It’s great to be part of the whole church community, but we need a place where we get to know other Christians well, and share the real issues of life and faith in a safe and supportive environment – and house groups are a great place to do that!
Moortown Baptist Church house groups are places of discipleship, where we move forward on our faith journey together with others. They are places of fellowship, prayer, care, teaching, fun – and a place to invite friends to find out more!
What happens at house groups?
House group programmes vary, but all include some Bible study or teaching. We have phases where all the groups use the same material, and often this links to Sunday sermon topics.
At other times groups choose their own material. Some groups include prayer and worship, and most have an active social programme. Most groups meet for about a couple of hours usually starting at 8pm.
Group leaders/co-ordinators meet once a term to learn from and pray for each other.
