DNA Triplets are the smallest building blocks of Cornerstone City Church and are one of the 3 main spaces to connect, belong and grow.
These are groups of 3-4 people with a focus primarily on developing genuine, open and transparent relationships that foster healthy DNA (discipleship, nurture and accountability).
DNA Triplets encourage you to ‘go deep’ with Jesus and also with one another, encouraging intentionality in following Jesus. It is not just being ‘social’ or ‘hanging out’.
You are encouraged to connect with others that you already have an existing relationship with or feel that you can trust. You facilitate the group yourself using the supporting resources but can receive coaching and encouragement from leaders too where needed.
The pattern of a DNA Triplet is:
• Meeting informally but regularly
• Being honest and real (no masks allowed!)
• Focusing on Jesus and asking “What is He saying to you?” and “What are you doing about it?”
• Reflecting on how each person is engaging with the RHYTHMs of discipleship
• Mutually sharing, caring, encouraging, challenging and praying for one another
There will soon be some training videos and resources that support and encourage the life
of DNA groups, all of which are available via our website www.cornerstonecity.co.uk/DNA
Missional communities seek to live like an extended family, developing genuine relationships and caring for one another. They are made up of different kinds of people, all at different stages in their spiritual journey but at the core an MC has a desire to see everyone re-orient their lives around following Jesus. Worship, prayer, learning how to understand and apply the Bible are as important as eating together! So the communities have a varied pattern of gatherings which will encourage all these things to happen, ultimately promoting the maturing of disciples and encouraging everyday mission.
An MC has particular mission focus that directs and informs the way they organise their community life, so not every MC is the same or has the same pattern of how and when they meet together. This mission focus could be a network of relationships or a neighbourhood (people, passions or places).
Missional communities could be anywhere between 8 & 80 people and so in terms of relational dynamics, they mainly occupy personal and social 'spaces'.
Listed below are 8 distinctive things that make a Missional Community:
Sunday mornings are an ideal space for people to gather together from across the church community to worship God in a corporate setting.
We love to start our Sundays with a social time for people to catch up with friends (or make new ones!) over a cup of fresh tea or coffee.
We encourage and build one another up through the use of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 14) and participation is encouraged across the Church when we gather together. We love to see everyone active!
Most weeks we hear an inspirational message from the Bible to encourage us onwards in our everyday journey with God.
We have teams each week that facilitate a creche, children's work and a youth group - All ages are welcome and we love to make everyone feel welcome whether they come on their own or with their family.
At the end of our gatherings we encourage people to stay for refreshments as this is often the best time to meet new people, make new friends and hear more about the ongoing life of Cornerstone City Church.#sundays
