There are lots of reasons to join a small group at MacChap…
Many at MacChap meet regularly in small groups to read the Bible, pray, get to know each other and grow in their understanding of God, our world and ourselves. Most of our groups meet on weekly but we also have fortnightly groups. Our small groups follow studied written to match our Major Series. Also, you can download the MacChap Bible Study Guides using the button below.
- It is a great way to continue learning together. In a small group setting you can ask question, discuss the Bible, learn from each other’s experience and wisdom. Small groups will help you put the Bible into practice. Small groups also help you develop accountability with each other.
- Small groups can encourage us to worship God with our whole lives. Worship happens anytime we focus on God and involves asking Him to shape your life and renew you by the Holy Spirit – and for Him to do that in the world. In small groups, as you have a great opportunity to pray together and encourage one another in your faith. In small groups we hope that you will learn how to pray in a comfortable and powerful way; for each other and for the needs of the world. We also hope that you will share the gifts you have been given to build each other up: of teaching, encouragement, wisdom, hospitality and more.
- Small groups are a great way to connect and care for those in our MacChap community. Most people who are in a small group say that one of the best benefits is the close relationships and friendships that develop. You’ll discover that your needs and problems are not unique – we’re all in the same boat. We really do need each other. God never meant for you to go it alone in the Christian life.
- Small groups remind us of God’s call for us to live out our faith in practical ways and reach others with the hope and freedom we have found in Jesus. Going to a small group gives you a natural way to share your faith with friends, family and workmates. Some of them might even want to join you for a meal or to investigate the message of grace we know.
