Connect Group Resources
We have some teaching materials available for any Connect Group to use. Based on a variety of topics including books and themes in the Bible, Christian literature and many more, these resources can be used either straight "off the shelf" or tailored by you so that they're perfect for your group. Bible references, relevant quotes, buzzgroup questions, illustrations and ideas for ministry are all included for you to use as much, or as little, as you wish. The clear and easy structure and optional illustration and buzzgroup questions mean they're helpful for any leader.
The resources available for download can be found at the bottom of this page.
Malshanger is HTB's 'home in the country' and is an ideal location for Connect Groups to go away for a weekend. Set in spacious grounds near Basingstoke, Malshanger is made available to HTB Connect Group members at a nominal fee.
Weekends away as a group provide a great opportunity to grow together and to be refreshed and encouraged.
If your Connect Group is interested in booking a weekend, email us for more information. Please note that weekends are usually booked months in advance, so be sure to make your reservation early.
We run training sessions to equip and envision people to lead a Connect Group, looking at the theological foundations for the model of small groups, exploring the practical skills of leading a group and the qualities of a leader. The training runs three times a year consisting of three evening sessions, followed by on-going mentoring by experienced and mature Christian leaders.
The primary role of a Connect Group leader is to ensure that every member of their group is given the best chance of growing as a disciple, to gather people and to nurture their growth, allowing each member to flourish. This will inevitably involve taking responsibility for the pastoral care of those in the group.
At HTB, we focus on characteristics that are important to our church and look for these in our leaders: character, vision, releasing gifts in others and openness to the Holy Spirit.
