Hope Groups

Hope Groups

The purpose of Hope Groups is to facilitate growth and maturity in our relationship with Jesus and with one another in the context of small groups. Our desire is that members would be encouraged and built up by one another, so that they may grow in both an understanding of God’s word and the outworking of love for one another and our surrounding community.

Artboard 39

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:24–25

Hope Groups meet bi-weekly in homes of members of our church. Our groups are led by qualified mature women and men in our church.

 

In our groups, we will spend time discussing questions tailored around the book or article that we are reading together. We will also read books to focus in on a mission (e.g. evangelism and mercy) and special topics as determined by our elders (e.g. singleness, parenting, marriage).

Hope groups Curriculum

Our Hope Groups will go through three study modules each year. These modules are designed to take the members of our church through our Discipleship Model - Glorifying God through Loving God, Loving Our Church and Loving Our World.

 

The first two modules (Loving God and Loving Our Church), each taking up part of a year, will utilize books and articles to facilitate study and discussion. The final module (Loving Our World) will be delivered through the format of workshops and community care events throughout the course of the entire year.

 

All of our Hope Group resources are approved by the Elders of Hope Church.
