What does a house church meeting look like?
We have teaching, fellowship, meals, prayer, scripture reading, personal encouragement, giving of thanks, and songs; Acts 2:44-46, Ephesians 4:12-16, Colossians 3:15-17, and 1 Corinthians 14. We believe that every Christian is a valuable part of the church and has something to offer as God has gifted them (1 Corinthians 12:12-27). Our gatherings are open for the saints to exercise their gifts, and at the same time kept orderly.
How long does a house church meeting last?
A house church 'meeting' involves many parts. A meeting usually involves, catching up on life through conversation, sharing a meal or two together, having a worship gathering, etc. Sometimes we are together for a few hours or all day. Sometimes a family can only make it for an hour or two. Worship gatherings (songs, testimony, sharing scripture, prayer, etc) can last 1-2 hours, depending on how the Spirit is leading.
How many times each week does a house church gather?
There is no set number of weekly gatherings, but we encourage all followers of Christ to meet as regularly as possible. (Hebrews 10:24 and 25, Acts 2:42 to 47, and Hebrews 3:13) Each house church is different and operates independently. Therefore, each church will differ in how often they meet.
