Parkes Baptist Church has a number of midweek Small Groups running at different times, and on a variety of days. These small groups are a time where people can gather together, in the comfort of someones home, to study the Bible, encourage one another in the walk of faith and support one another in both life's good times and the more challenging times of life.
It is another avenue for our people to experience authentic Christian community as people take up the opportunity to connect with a smaller group of people. In doing this we can experience an even greater sense of belonging to and participation in the larger community, which is the church. Small groups provide the ideal environment for experiencing the transforming power of of the Holy Spirit, as we seek “To know Christ and to make Christ known”.
