What is a Cell Group?

A cell group consists of people from the church meeting together outside the Sunday morning service with the desire to share our mutual love of Jesus with each other and with those outside the church. This gives us an opportunity for us to spend time getting to know each other on a deeper level than is possible on a Sunday morning, and provides us with support and encouragement to grow and develop as Christians in our everyday lives. In addition we focus on friends and family who are not Christians, praying for their needs and inviting them to share in social activities so that we can get to know them better and encourage any who may be seeking to know more about God.

When and where do Cell Groups take place?

OneCell Groups meets on a Wednesday evening at the TLC Shop on Elm Drive, Ty Sign Estate, starting at 7.30pm, and the other meets at the TLC shop on alternate Thursdays around 7.30pm. Groups usually last for 1 to 2 hours.

Who attends?

Everyone in the church belongs to a Cell Group, although not all can attend regularly. Meetings can vary in size from 4 to 10 people and this means that the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Visitors are always welcome, whether invited or just passing by and calling in for a cup of coffee and a chat.

Why does Agape have Cell Groups?

Our hope is that the Cell Groups will provide a means for us to grow and develop as Christians in a supportive and loving environment. It is also our desire that we will enable others to meet with Jesus and have the opportunity to grow in their knowledge of Him.

What happens at a typical Cell Group meeting?

Welcome, Worship, Word and Witness are the 4 key elements of a meeting. However, this pattern is flexible, depending on who is at the meeting and what their particular needs are at the time. Normally we start with a ‘welcome’ – a light-hearted, getting-to-know-you activity or discussion which aims to get everyone involved. ‘Worship’ is a time to thank God for all that he has done for us, and ‘Word’ is the bit where we look at what the Bible says to us and how it applies to our daily lives. ‘Witness’ is a time when we think of others not in the group and pray for them and their needs. The meetings are very informal, with lots of time to chat to others and we always make sure there are plenty of refreshments on hand!

Examples of Cell Group Activities

As well as Wednesday evening meetings we aim to have other fun social activities, to which we can invite friends and family. Examples of things we have done together include an evening walk, a trip to the cinema, going out for a meal, going ten-pin bowling, a quiz evening and learning sign language taught by a deaf friend.
