Enjoy studying the bible together and spending time in prayer, listening to God and each other.
Each community gets together frequently and in a predictable pattern. They are all different but have one shared vision: Put Jesus at the centre, living life as a family of servants, demonstrating and declaring the good news. Communities are for everyone. Joining a community is the best way to get connected to each other, to love God together, to serve and bless others.

What do communities look like
Why do we need them?
- So we can be family in a meaningful way – you can achieve that in smaller groups.
- Because we grow best in community.
- We don’t exist for ourselves but to be a blessing to others – as a family we have a shared sense of mission.
While there are similarities these emphases are key:
We expect communities to be growing in confidence in declaring and demonstrating the good news.
Communities are outward looking and open to all and we expect numerical growth.
We are seeking to integrate discipling community with mission and service.
They are about simplifying church life; community is not an extra group.
Discovery Bible study empowers through a method where everyone can lead, and equips us to be missionary servants.
It’s more rhythm than programme and it’s easy for people with no experience of church to come to.
