At Whetstone Baptist Church we offer a number of groups for adults that cater for a variety of needs and provide a way to be connected with the church family

These groups help everyone to explore faith, deepen their relationship with God, and share life together. The primary ministry is small groups, but, as you see below, there are other ways to connect too.

Small groups

Weekly or fortnightly, various days and times


Our small groups typically comprise 8-12 people, and meet in homes. They provide a safe place where you can:

  • share the ups and downs of life
  • find help and prayer support
  • study the Bible together
  • ask the difficult questions about your faith
  • discover your own God-given ministry

Small groups also provide an opportunity to make new friends, have fun and socialise together.
