Write down the important agreed aspects of the group of how it will function.

 

Why

Small Groups Instructions are created so all can agree and understand what is important, the purpose, its function and the roles of the group, to.

  • Provide a framework to work within (notwithstanding the Holy Spirit of course) so that all know what we are working together for,

  • Manage expectations e.g. " we should only study the text and that word by word.", "in my last group we had communion each week.”, “Do I really have to pray out loud?"

  • Provide a clear introduction for newcomers to your group.
