Community Group Resources

These are resources intended to be used in Community Groups and Bible Studies. 

Sermon Study

Many of us listen to the sermon on a Sunday but think very little of it in the rest of their week. For each sermon we have designed a series of questions to help guide your reflections on the sermon and to go deeper. 

Although this could be a solo endeavour, we recommend that you engage these questions in community. This can take the shape of going through some questions with partner or engaging with these questions as a small group. Either way, you are encouraged to meet with someone each week to discuss what you have listened to. All questions can be found on our sermons plus page. 

*Sanctuary Course

The Sanctuary Course is for anyone who wants to learn about faith and mental health. It requires no previous training or expertise—just a willingness to engage in dialogue with other believers.

12 Neighbors

The 12 Neighbors Project asks the most important question of our time, "what does it really mean to love your neighbor?" Their goal is to create a movement of people who are inspired and educated to love their neighbors like never before. 

They have created this 7-part film series so that people may gather together as a group, watch the films, discuss appropriate action in their own communities, and then take action together as a group. ​These films will challenge your perspective on poverty, marginalization, and effecting real change.

The Character Course

The Character Course brings together the most up-to-date psychology with ancient biblical wisdom. In eight sessions, it covers key themes of Christian discipleship: learning, hope, love, forgiveness, gratitude, humour, persistence and curiosity.

This site has everything you need to run it: videos, leader notes, scripts and handouts. All free to download. It’s designed for small groups, but you can complete it however you like: alone or in a group, live or online. It works best when you share the journey with others. Each session has a short video to watch, a bible passage to ponder and a practice to try out.

The Bible Course

The Bible is a big and complicated book to read and for many it can be difficult to know where to start. Maybe you’ve been part of a Bible study group and want to build your confidence so you can study the Bible on your own, or maybe you need help connecting together the bits you’ve been reading. The Bible Course is a great resource, whether you are familiar with the Bible or just starting out.

  • The Bible Course helps you see how the books of the Bible are part of one big story.

  • Using a unique storyline, The Bible Course will show you how key events, books and characters fit together.

  • The video teaching, course guide and daily readings will help you grow in confidence as you read the Bible for yourself.

  • Acts as a great follow-on resource for those who have done introductory courses like Alpha and Christianity Explored.

The ReFrame Course

Run by Regant College, the ReFrame course is a 10 course video series that aims to help you live out faith in everyday life, encouraging you to encounter Jesus afresh and allowing his story to shape your own. This first session explores how a fragmented and complex world can tempt Christians to either withdraw from or assimilate to the culture around them. However, the true story of Jesus enables Christians to resist these temptations and live integrated and faithful lives.
