A micro-church is a group of about 15-50 people (including children) who share life together in an intentional way, in the name of Jesus.
They have a stated purpose, or mission, to bless the wider community in practical ways. They pray and read the bible together. They are warm and welcoming and feel like an extended family.
Micro-churches are not bible studies or cell groups. They are more organic than this. They are formed around rhythms that help people share life together in a connected way.
Every micro-church is somewhat unique. While most involve eating, praying, learning and serving, they all do it differently. Some focus on a place, such as a suburb. Others organise around social activities, hobbies, or social justice causes. Really, the options are limitless.
You can connect in different ways, depending on how involved and committed you want to be. There are social activities (such as BBQ’s, street parties), as well as spiritual activities (like church in the home). We try to meet on Sundays for those who want to worship and learn together as disciples of Jesus.
The idea of a micro-church may be a bit confusing if you only know church as a program or an event. But this is how church is meant to be — a loving, generous group of people who practice the ways of Jesus in everyday life together!
Like any healthy family, micro-churches involve people from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. Our leaders all follow Jesus and are accountable to others, but you don’t have to believe what we believe to connect, build friendships, and get involved in meaningful ways.
Our communities are places where you can explore belief for the first time, in a safe and non-judgemental way. Just come along, hang out, and if interested, join our spiritual conversations.
Yes, you can! We love supporting people who have a heart for new micro-church.
For us, the key is relationship, alignment, truth and trust.
