Small Groups

Small Groups

These are a vital part of the church’s life for growing deeper
in relationship with God and each other. As a newcomer,
this is one of the quickest ways to get to know a small group
of people better, and we encourage you to be part of one.
The format varies in each group, but there is always an
element of prayer, Bible reflection that is grounded in
everyday life and usually a good deal of laughter.
There are several groups, some meeting daytime and some
in the evening.

Occasional courses

We run Alpha or something similar from time to
time for those wanting to know more about the
Christian faith or for people wanting to cover the
foundations again.

Baptism and Church Membership Course

We practice believer’s baptism by immersion in response to
Jesus’ command to ‘repent and be baptised’. This is the
outward sign of the inner work of God in our lives, a public
declaration of our faith and commitment to discipleship.
Church Membership is a way of showing deeper
commitment to the life and ministry of Southwell Baptist
Church. The church meeting is the place where important
decisions are made for the life of the church so it is vital that
all who are committed to seeing God at work amongst us are
a part of this.
