The Summer Term of Small Groups will run from the 6th of May – 28th of June 2019
“BE A BIG PART OF SOMETHING SMALL”.
At Causeway Coast Vineyard there are BIG things happening in our Small Groups. We believe our Small Groups are absolutely vital to our growth as a community of people following Jesus together. Gathering together at our Sunday services are important touchstones in our journey of faith, but with so many people coming each Sunday, it can be a challenge to meet people, to get to grips with what we are actually learning and hearing from God on a regular basis, and to discuss and converse about the happenings of our lives. These are just some of the reasons why we feel it is so very important that along with the BIG, we must have the SMALL.
We want to be a family that always welcomes, making room at our table for those that are new and for those looking for a deeper sense of community and growing as we move forward together. We want our Small Groups to be a place of connection for people to develop relationships that give opportunity to care for others, to celebrate with others, to be there in their moments of joy and sorrow and in the every day of learning how to live our lives with Jesus at the centre.
Our Small Groups are essential to our “Pastoral Share” ethos leaning into the biblical model of communities of believers being there for one another in times of need and sorrow, but also in times of celebration for one and with one another. Our Small Group structure helps us to support one another in both the ups and the downs of life as we do life together.
Practically, our Small Groups start and finish on a term by term basis. The terms last between 8 -10 weeks depending on the time of year. This allows everyone to sign up for groups at the same time, 3 times a year : January, May and September.
Each of our groups are generally sized between 8-18 people who meet weekly each term in various locations across our community. Some of our Core courses may be larger from time to time, but we’ll endeavour to make getting to know one another easy!
Small Groups are vital to the life of our community at Causeway Coast Vineyard and we would love to invite you into the adventure of being a BIG part of something SMALL.
We can’t wait to welcome you to be a BIG part of something Small.
