The centre of the home group is about the application of the Bible - How does this apply to me? What change does it require of me? To what incidents or situations in my life is this relevant?
Home groups can encourage honesty and make space for questions and doubts. Christian faith throws up paradoxes; events in our lives can make particular verses hard to understand. The home group can be a safe place to express these concerns.
Home groups can give opportunities for friendships to develop. As we talk about our experiences, feelings, questions, hopes and fears, we are able to offer support to each other. In a good group we can bounce ideas off each other, spark inspiration and creativity, pool talents and resources: the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts!
