Like all areas of ministry at Redeemer, small groups are part of our overall mission as a church (Matt 28:19-20) and involve aspects of both discipleship and evangelism.
Our vision for Small Groups at Redeemer is summarized in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 “Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.” Sharing life with one another, centered around and made possible by the gospel of God. In this way, we speak and display the message that's brought us together (John 13:35).
To effectively share life with one another our small groups are just that, small! As a result, we long to see multiple groups of believers meeting together throughout the city during the week to encourage one another in God’s word, representing Christ to one another, and seeing their love for one another grow in knowledge and depth of insight (Phil 1:9). With such a diverse city as Dubai we recognize that this will happen not just at one time or in one way, but as people are able.
Our community groups primarily consist of people living in a particularly geographical area (e.g. Al Nahda). Our Discipleship Groups primarily consist of people who are available at a certain time and meet to study a topic or book of interest.
