Calvary Auckland Home Group & Small Group Ministry
Gathering in groups of 10-15 people across Auckland
Growth Groups are a key aspect of our church community. The Bible says in Acts 2:46 that the early Church met in both the large gatherings (temple), and in small gatherings (house to house). The early Christians were, "Continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart" This is the Biblical pattern for small groups at Calvary.
We believe that authentic ministry happens in smaller groups. We love the weekend service, but we also see a need for us to meet at a more personal level. No one should get lost in the crowd, and home groups provide a great place for us to have real meaningful relationships with one another. This is just like what the Church did back in the beginning! Growth groups have many benefits like: A closer relationships with others at Church // A place to ask questions and discuss topics // Somewhere to get advice and prayer support // A place to grow in your faith // The opportunity for accountability and help in your walk with God. These are just a few benefits!
Most Growth Groups meet weekly in the home of a group member (usually the leader's home). We try to keep them limited to about 10-15 people. The gatherings are mostly by location, but some have found they like to meet with others of their own life stage or interests. We want to make sure there is a group for everyone! If you can't find an open group, please let us know.
