Our desire in writing this booklet is to encourage holistic small groups with a missional heartbeat. In many small groups it is the missional part that is the biggest challenge. We are often not sure what this looks like or how to include it in a way that is not threatening or off putting for our small group members. This lack of confidence and uncertainty means that many of our small groups like to think they are missional in some way but have little if any understanding of what that can look like on a meeting by meeting basis. This means that for most it is not a regular feature of their small group life.
If that sounds in any way like your group then our hope is that this booklet will help you.
We start by looking at some of the challenges we face as Christians in the UK as we share our faith and how we can think differently about this challenge and what this means for us. We then move to think through some of the practicalities and translate these concepts into actual things we can do in our small group to become missional. This is a practical resource essential in developing small groups with a missional heartbeat.
