B-Street Small Groups

Since the start of the church, Christians have gathered in large groups and in small groups for discipleship, fellowship, worship, evangelism, and ministry. (Acts 2: 46-47) Here at Buncombe Street, our goal is to provide new opportunities for people to grow in their faith together. Small Groups are not just traditional Bible studies- they can be anything you want them to be!

Whether through a book study, fellowship group, or even a leisure group, there are so many great ways to connect to others! Each group has a different meeting schedule and is not a replacement for Sunday School, which is a long-standing tradition at Buncombe Street. 

 See below for details on each Small Group for the fall. Registration for these groups opens on August 20, 2023. Groups start the week of  September 10, 2023, unless otherwise noted.

Monday Small Groups

Come and learn as we explore our spiritual gifts, how to apply them, how to build relationships with those in need, and how to pray without ceasing. We will work together to empower each other to serve as Christ's hands and feet in our community, and will explore how to share the message of Jesus through our words and deeds. Where we can - we will lend our hearts and hands! (James 2:18)
