DNA Groups 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 (Discover, Nurture and Act).
DNA Groups 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 Group 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
Groups & Communities are an eclectic and evolving organic combination of both short & long-term initiatives which focus on developing the following areas of missional life at Cornerstone City Church:
These G&Cs prioritise a deepening of spiritual practices such as worship, prayer, fasting, personal devotions and establishing healthy RHYTHMs in the disciples everyday life.
These G&Cs focus on strengthening and deepening our walk with one another. This will include a multitude of discipleship pathways such as Marriage and Parenting Courses, Foundations course, developing pastoral care, teaching and preaching courses, one anothering, various social engagments and events.
G&Cs that engage with the wider world such as mission & evangelism training. Exploring faith courses, The Alpha Course, Table Talk, street evangelism, support teams for CAP initiatives, the Medway Winter Night Shelter & other social action oriented projects.
Various G&Cs start & stop in regular blocks throughout the year with everyone at CCC being encouraged to 'have a go' & lead one with practical encouragement, training and support given along the way.#G&Cs
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
