40 Missional Ideas For Small Groups
Get the resource >
How can each one of us live out Christ in the context of where we work, where we live and in our families? Cell UK has brought together 40 fantastic ideas for use in small groups.
This really is a tin! 40 ideas printed on 40 cards, pictures on one side, ideas on the other. Grouped under 8 headings:
Planned to take 10 minutes of small group time. Available from www.celluk.org.uk.
Adult, new, growing Christians, small groups
Attractive tin, nicely produced photo cards. A novel approach.
Each card clearly explains its idea and accompanying action. Introductory card explains these as 10-minute ideas to ‘encourage and empower' love for those around us. Icons on cards flag up where advance preparation is needed.
Easy to pick-out-and-use ideas. Images on the front are relevant to the topic. Each card is also clearly marked with the relevant overall theme (see above).
Most could be led by any small group member. These are ideas for action, so leader needs to ensure that this happens.
Hardly any, usually just choosing relevant subject. Icons mark where items are needed, either from around the home, or needing more planning. Be prepared for some ideas to need more time than 10 minutes.
Good discussion-starters and thought-provoking questions and themes.
Great idea to use the cards. Just a little to read, and plenty to discuss. Some cards include really good visual aid suggestions.
Could be used in a variety of ways – for example, as an add-on to a regular small group meeting, or as a focus, or for individuals to choose within a group. Would be great for a group considering outreach in a new way, or for the first time – there are so many excellent suggestions.
The ideas encourage discussion, and many of them require working together to make them happen, or at least supporting each other.
Some cards suggest a passage to read; others refer to or quote biblical material and base the topic on it; some have neither.
The biblical material is usually the reference point for engaging with a topic, and understanding it in context is the starting place.
Group invited to apply the material both personally and practically, with a consistent emphasis on reaching out to others in love.
There really should be something for everyone here; the tin contains a creative and inspiring mixture of ideas. Fabulous.
Many of the ideas are very practical, active and could bring out a range of skills and gifts from group members. This is a thoughtful resource but each one leads to action.
Huge variety of approaches and suggestions, which include thinking things through and responding with action. Considering each topic is essentially on the back of a postcard, the potential for stretching faith and vision is impressive.
Rooted in practical and theological responses to life, from hospitality to the workplace.
Brilliantly, with a variety of ideas that would suit every personality.
Motivation is love for others, and a priority on local relationships, wherever we find ourselves. Again, a glorious mix of ideas, with the ‘Neighbourhood' cards being especially relevant here.
