What are the DBC Small Groups? They are groups consisting of 5 to 10 people who meet every other week for sharing, encouraging, supporting, growing, studying, and anything else they decide their group wants to do. Some share a meal during their meetings, most have social get-togethers if there is a "fifth week" in the month, some include Communion or Show & Tell – it is very much up to the members.
We started in September 2009 with five groups and are hoping to start several more group in the course of 2013. All groups are open to everyone. At the moment the following groups meet, usually on the 2nd and 4th Monday / Wednesday / Thursday of the month, with a Social (which welcomes spouses and children) on the 5th, if there is one:
Monday Evening Group, 7.30pm at various locations (contact Fiona)
Wednesday Afternoon Group, 2.30pm at various locations (contact Linda)
Wednesday Evening Group, 7.30pm at David & Ilke's
Early Thursday Group, 6pm at Katie's (including a meal)
Late Thursday Group, 7.30pm at various locations (contact Chris) Starting soon: New Thursday Group, 7.30pm at Tony & Sally's.
Shortly after Easter an "After Alpha" group will begin on Wednesday evenings to do a course called "Discipleship Explored". It is hoped thereafter this group may continue to meet, forming a new Small Group. Speak to Dave and Lesley if you might like to do this course.
