How Small Group Studies Work
Gather a group of 2 or more people and you have a small group. Only one person needs to register for the study.
Most studies are 4-6 weeks. There are several studies available in the Prayer Bench Shop. They are available for Advent and Lent and many can be used at other times throughout the year.
The Small Group includes:
- A link to a downloadable video or audio podcast or print article;
- A leader sheet with written group process for each 1 hour session;
- Participant handouts to be photocopied for your group;
- Other resources to supplement the process.
- Sometimes there is a written script of the audio recording.
Your group study takes place around the kitchen table or at a church meeting spaces. An internet connection is not needed once the leader has accessed and downloaded resource materials.
This resource may be particularly helpful to congregations with part-time ministry where time to offer all things is limited. But the Small Group Study is available to anyone looking for a resource to share with a small group.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions.
“I just wanted to tell you that those participating are getting a lot out of it,
and as a leader I have never done less planning – everything is there.”
“My group likes knowing that they are connected in the study to many other groups doing the same study within the Maritimes and beyond. Your studies are different than my traditional line by line look through a book of Scripture at a time.
It gives my pastoral charge some variety in the style of Bible Study.”
“We had a member who at times prefered to remain at home due to previous illness issues,
so she was very grateful that she could access the weekly sessions on her own computer.”
“Such ease of preparation because of the clear layout/design.You had it all there and easily accessible.”
“I loved the intimacy created by a group coming together with an intention.”
