Are your home groups in a rut? Needing something to shake them up?
Here’s an interesting idea – stop meeting in each other’s homes.
I heard recently of a church was pushing back on the idea of being pushed to the margins. They realised they were colluding with the idea of being invisible to a wider society, by only meeting in private
So they stopped it. Now the home groups meet in public:, often in cafés, library lobbies or pubs, pre-booked with the staff, and doing what they always do. Except they do it visibly.
Our local indie coffee shop offers all sorts of groups running through the week, advertised on its blackboard, and it’s only a matter of time before the cults wake up to this. So let’s move fast.
What do you think. Ever tried it? Do you think it might work?
