Home Groups

Plug into a Small Group, Grow in Faith and Community

Brussels is a busy city that’s full of transition. As many of us are living away from family and the familiar, Home Groups are a way to develop supportive communities and get connected with other believers. Check out the  schedules of the Home Groups below, email leaders for the details, and give it a try.

How to Start a Home Group

So, you want to start a home group? Great! God often uses small groups, like home groups, to deepen people’s faith, as they journey together beyond Sundays. In home groups, people will study Scripture together, either through a planned curriculum or through self-guided conversations, and they will pray together. Many home groups also eat together. Home group leaders do not need to be trained theologians, expert Christians, or even amazing prayer-warriors. They just have to be willing to respond to how God wants to use them. So, you want to start a home group? We can help.

0. Check to see if there is already a home group in your area! No? Okay.
1. Contact Natalie Jones and express your interest in starting a home group.
2. With Natalie, think about what days and times work best for you. Select one.
3. Through Holy Trinity and other networks you may have, invite people to an initial gathering or study.
4. Through prayer and debriefing with Natalie, decide on whether you think God is moving your home group forward now.
5. Invite people back to a regular group.
6. Congratulations, you have started a home group.
