small groups

Welcome to Chinese Gospel Church Small Groups (CGCSG)!

C stands for WelCome, or Come to join us in one of the Chinese Gospel Church small groups.

Small groups are places where people are welcomed, belong, and feel safe to share in a warm, comforting environment.

G stands for Grow.

A small group is one of the best places to grow in your faith. “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). Through interacting with members of a small group, you can worship together, learn biblical truth, be encouraged & exhorted by others, be accountable to one another & have the opportunity to pray for one another together (& see prayers answered!).

C stands for Care.

There is a crisis of caring in our world, and church life can also be busy & impersonal. By joining a small group, you will have more opportunities to understand the Christian faith, and to interact with fellow believers who can share your needs & burdens, and pray for you. At Chinese Gospel Church Toronto English, there are a variety of small groups to meet your needs, ranging from singles, to couples’ to family-oriented & seniors’ groups. There are also fellowship-based groups, discipleship groups, & outreach groups to choose from.

S stands for Serve

Helping one another to grow also involves encouraging one another to serve each others’ needs, the local church, and the larger community. As much as spiritual growth comes from nurturing, it also comes from exercising your gifts & abilities, in conjunction & complemented by others with different spiritual gifts. “…to prepare people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up” (Ephesians4:12).

G stands for Go.

Healthy growth also includes reaching out to others in need, evangelizing the lost with the gospel, and being involved in world missions. Small groups can help you to take active part in the Great Commission by incorporating seekers, newcomers, praying for & supporting your evangelistic efforts, & sponsoring missionary families.

By joining a small group and becoming involved in our small group ministry, you will play an important part in Chinese Gospel Church Toronto English to fulfill our vision:

To nurture spiritually healthy, fully devoted and mature followers of Jesus Christ who will plant and grow reproducing churches. (Eph. 4:15-16).
