THE CELL COMMUNITY THE EXPERIENCE – WHAT IS IT ?
The Cell Community is a community of small faith groups which strive to support the faith of people in the following ways :
The 7 purposes of a Cell Group :
- To grow in intimacy with the Lord
- To grow in love of one another
- To share Jesus with others
- To minister in the Body of Christ
- To give and receive support
- To raise up new leaders
- To deepen our Catholic identity
CELL GROUPS :
Groups can vary in size from four to fourteen, at which point the group divides (multiplies ) into two groups.
Each group is cared for by a leader who facilitates each meeting and encourages the members to participate in the work of evangelisation.
CELL MEETINGS :
The cell groups in Adamstown meet every two weeks – usually in the home of the cell group leader.
The structure of a cell meeting is :
- Singing and Prayer
- Sharing experiences, thoughts and ideas
- Reading a Scripture passage and reflection
- Listening to a taped teaching prepared by the Parish Priest. (Followed by a short discussion)
- Intercessory Prayer
- Cuppa and chat
- here is a strong social element to the community.
