Cell Groups

We encourage everyone in the community to join a cell group. Joining a group enables us to become more involved in the work and ministry of Church of the Good Shepherd.

The groups provide the ideal environment for us all to develop our faith. Here we can be known for who we are and true friendships can thrive. Cell groups are also the place for immediate pastoral care.

Currently we have 13 cell groups including a Youth Cell. Cells meet at different times and days of the week.

4 groups meet on Monday evenings
1 group meets Tuesday evenings.
3 groups meet Wednesday evenings.
2 groups meet Thursday evening
3 groups meet mornings, 1 on Tuesdays, 2 on Thursdays  

Cell groups meet in small groups, getting to know each other and supporting each other. Being in a small group, we are able to build relationships in a more personal way.
We pray together and learn from the Bible about how to live as Christians.
We have fun together, and reach out to others, to offer a welcoming and inclusive family of God to all.

If you would like to join a cell or know more about cells, please contact Jackie Burch on 562098 or Val Lucas on 561139.

Who knows what benefits you may bring to a cell!
