At Culloden-Balloch Baptist Church, we believe that being connected with a smaller group of people can be a great way of deepening faith, and building relationships with others in our church family. This in turn has a deepening effect on the worship and ministry for the whole church.
As our church grows numerically, and in a context where lives are busy, it can be difficult to find opportunities to make and grow lasting and encouraging relationships. To make the growing of such relationships possible we run a number of Prayer and Fellowship Groups, in various locations across Inverness and the surrounding area, meeting together in people’s homes on the third Wednesday or Thursday of the each month, taking the place the corporate Church Prayer Meeting of that week.
The ethos of these groups takes inspiration from the early church, as recorded in Acts 2:42, where we read that the embryonic church gathered together in each others homes where ‘they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.’ Our gatherings consist of groups between 6 and 20 people who meet in an informal style to share time together to pray, develop fellowship and study together, all with the aim of encouraging one another in their walk with God as disciples of Christ in what appears to many increasingly challenging times.
We eagerly encourage you to consider joining one of these Prayer and Fellowship Groups. There is always scope to develop additional groups at alternative times to those currently available as need arises.
