The following questions were asked on the evening and have been answered below:
How long would the homegroup pauses be?
Four to six weeks depending on the topic. There would be at most one per year
Won’t pauses disrupt homegroups?
Groups will be encouraged to meet socially and attend other events together.
If there are no outlines won’t leaders be doing everything in the meetings?
No the new resources will be available to everyone and the preachers questions will be made available. Will still use the 4Ws asa guide but there will be more flexibility for groups to do what they want.
How do we stop groups becoming clicky?
Still have family nights and prayer meetings together. Homegroups will be twinned and meet occasionally to widen contact outside of groups.
How many people in a group?
Can there be more emphasis on being baby sitters on other group’s evening?
Yes, we should have a more even split between the two evenings which will help.
Do couples have to go to the same group?
No, they can go on different evenings if that helps them both to attend more regularly.
