WHAT are small groups?
Small groups are the heart of what we do at Windsor Road. For us, doing life together is far more than a catchphrase; it’s a biblical conviction. We believe that God never meant for us to do life alone. We were created to walk with each other, to grow with one another, and to glorify God together.
This is why our Small Groups are places where people of all stages of life and backgrounds can come together and be real. We’re all just imperfect people, trying to love a perfect God. You don’t have to make the journey of faith alone. We invite you to find out just how better life can be in a Small Group.
