The Bible says we are formed for fellowship so we believe it is important to provide opportunities for people to get to know each other at a deeper level than a Sunday service might provide. It’s no coincidence that Jesus had a small group that he hung around with for mutual support and to provide a setting for the disciples to grow in faith and service.
Acorn Community Church is a church of small groups. We believe the most effective way of having a growing and caring, yet outward looking community is by offering every person an opportunity to participate in a small group during the week.
When are they on?
What are they like?
Currently we have small groups running on Tuesday & Wednesday evenings in a variety of locations.
Each Small Group varies, but they tend to meet in homes and include refreshments, socialising, bible study & discussion, sharing and prayer. Groups usually involve 10-12 people.
How can I get involved in a Small Group?
Current Small Group topics
If you would like to know more or are interested in joining a group please speak with the Small Group Co-ordinators, John or Sheila Hodgson or use the Contact button at the top of this page.
Some small groups follow the Sunday morning service topic whilst other groups follow a running theme - for example; Questions God Asked.
