House groups are an integral part of church life enabling small groups
to meet in a homely environment for fellowship and friendship.
There are many benefits such as providing a place to:
- To grow in love and grace together in the Lord Jesus
- Encourage and support one another
- Give people a sense of belonging
- Provide pastoral care when needed
- Pray, sing, challenge and search the scriptures as in the early
church (Colossians 3 v16)
- Pray for needs that may arise in our own church family or people in
our local communities
- To give thanks through personal or corporate testimony of God at work
in our lives.
- Talk — People in a small group are more likely to participate
in discussions than in a large group. Since there are fewer people,
there is more opportunity to talk and less room to hide.
- For people to use their gifts and talents to minister to one
God doesn't expect pastors and teachers to do all the ministering. He
has given each of us gifts and talents to encourage, teach, and
challenge one another. Small groups provide the perfect setting for
Christians to minister one to another. (Hebrews 10 v 24-25)
