Training seminar for current and aspiring small group leaders
Churches met in houses in the first century. The new believers that joined these communities, enjoyed a healthy Christian family life that was characterised with an atmosphere of praise, willingness to sacrifice for one another and the Lord Himself endorsing their conduct by adding to their group.
They worshiped together regularly at the Temple each day, met in small groups in homes for Communion, and shared their meals with great joy and thankfulness,
Acts 2:46 (TLB)
Topics covered include:
- Developing a vision for your cell
- Follow-up and pastoral care
- Outreach strategies for growing your cell
This training seminar builds on a previous training day. Watch Cell Growth Seminar (Part 1) at clfgreenwich.org/growyourcell
Here are some comments from previous seminar attendees:
‘It was practical. I liked that it looked at our spiritual lives as believers that we can have an impact on the growth of our church’
‘I feel I made new friends, and also enjoyed fellowship with the friends I already have’
‘I feel refreshed about cell again.’
‘It was a good use of my Saturday as learning how to be an effective servant leader is what is needed in building God's kingdom here on earth’
What is a ‘cell’?
A small group, known as a cell group, is a group of three or more believers who gather together regularly for friendship, worship, ministry, evangelism and discipleship. Cell groups are also known as 'Connect Groups' or 'Small Groups'.
Groups are usually focused on Bible study or some form of common interest and meet in someone’s home or at a public place, church premises or at someone’s work place.
