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.  Contact Cathy Musselwhite, Buncombe Street’s Director of Adult Ministry, to get connected with the small group that’s right for you!
