Small groups are a significant aspect of our Christian family life at MBC. In a church of some 200+ adults, being part of a smaller group helps us feel connected to the wider church family. More importantly, small groups provide an environment  where our individual giftings can be explored, developed and exercised, enabling us to cultivate our covenant relationship with Jesus and his kingdom calling on our lives.

On this page is a list of MBC’s current small groups, each characterised by its specific vision.  We invite you to prayerfully consider where God  may be calling you to connect and be resourced ready for service.

You may, after reflection, feel it might be more appropriate to start a new group. Either way Jane would love to meet with you to discuss your individual discipleship journey.
