The following set of studies, utilising the Discovery Bible Study (DBS) method, are designed to be used over the first five meetings of new Growth Groups. They introduce 3 areas of faith growth and help to set expectations and practices for each group during its formative stage. Some groups may choose to use the DBS method beyond the initial five weeks.

Across our church, we seek to cultivate five keys to growing in faith. Growth Groups can support people by utilising these keys through regular meetings and activities:

  1. Week 1 Belonging: Belong and help others belong
  2. Week 2 Word and Prayer: Deepen our Relationship with God
  3. Week 3 Faith: follow and help others follow Jesus
  4. Week 4 Rhythm: Develop healthy faith habits for Life
  5. Week 5 Service: Serve & help others serve
