Developed throughout the year, Small Group Studies are available to you when you register. You receive access to a private webpage and password. There you will find easily downloadable audio files with teaching or reflections, a Leader page with everything you need for a one hour session, Participant page and Additional Resources (including an script of the audio recording). Small Group Studies are valued for their ability to evoke deep conversation and always offer group spiritual practices. They are sometimes based on Lectionary Readings or explore a theme.
