Discipling Groups

We see the Discipling Group ministry as an important part of the jigsaw.

Our commitment to making disciples is expressed in the patterns of how the church meets during the week. Smaller Groups from St Michael’s meet through the week in a variety of formats but with a common purpose – to help each other grow as followers of Jesus.

Most groups emerge from under the framework of our Missional Communities, helping people to develop good life rhythms, on solid biblical principles and teaching. We leave it to each group to determine the patterns that best suit the needs of their community – but it is usually a mixed economy of meeting in Small Groups, triplets and 1:1.

Balancing flexibility with simplicity like this means we don’t create too many layers of meetings and make everyone over-busy, we want to help focus on what God has called us to. To find out more, why not connect with one of our Missional Community Leaders via their group page or contact the church team.

For those new to St Michael’s, we host ad hoc welcome groups – helping newcomers to build relationships with others, connect with our vision and find their own place in the family and the life of the church.

We also run specific groups for developing our leaders. These “Huddles” have a specific focus on discipling and mentoring to help us grow as leaders, using a variety of external resources, as well as our own CROWN rhythm of life.
