This brand new booklet has been a collaborative project between Trevor Withers and Laurence Singlehurst, who have been running successful and popular small groups training across denominations and church streams for over 20 years.

This booklet enables both theoretical understanding and practical application in a real small group with other potential group leaders from your church. Grounded in biblical beliefs and values, this booklet includes reading matter for people to learn on their own, questions for discussion in a group, and material to be used in an actual small group setting.

It works like this:

  • you read the opening three chapters on your own
  • then meet as a group for discussion for three sessions, using the next three chapters
  • and then meet for three sessions to see how it works using the outlines and material in the last three chapters

‘Because the well-known phrase ‘you can’t tell a book by its cover’ is true, we thought it might be helpful for you to have a peek inside, and we have captured a few pages in a PDF so you can get a flavour of what’s inside.’   Download PDF

‘Small groups are, in our view, all about encouraging participation and so the pages we have chosen pick up on this theme. They are from a chapter entitled Group Dynamics, and are in the section of the book where you read the material together and discuss it, hence the questions for discussion at the end.’ Trevor Withers
