What is a Home Church?

A Home Church is an extended family of relationships, centered around Jesus, who go and make disciples amongst a specific group of people.

  • The FAMILY of a Home Church is full of grace and acceptance, where people far from God can belong and contribute even before they start to believe or behave
  • The FEEL of a Home Church is an experience of God’s love, both through tangible acts of kindness and also through prayer and encounters with God’s presence
  • The FRUIT of a Home Church is the forming of disciple-making disciples of Jesus, many of whom have come to faith in the context of that group

The primary gathering point for The Dandelion Project is in Home Churches - which can meet in homes, workplaces, schools, parks, restaurants, gyms, etc. The connecting piece is that it is all about relationships - with one another, and with Jesus, who shapes everything that goes on.

What Happens at a
Home Church?

A typical Home Church meeting will generally include the following elements:

  • Lots of food, potluck style, with ample time for conversation
  • Creative worship, where we encounter God’s love and presence in a variety of ways
  • A personal story from a member of the group about God’s goodness
  • Bible reading and discussion, focused on personal application (and prayer) by subdividing into small groups
  • Opportunity for those who would like prayer to receive that
  • Planning for future events

All Home Churches seek to bless their city/wider community through serving and demonstrating the supernatural goodness of God, and groups often arrange specific times to do this..

To try out a Home Church, please message us via the Contact form (since groups tend to move around a little to allow different people to host, this is the simplest way to give you up-to-date info).

Finally, Home Churches are designed to be easy to reproduce, with every group multiplying at least once a year. To help facilitate this, we offer training and support of apprentice leaders, and love to hear dreams from people just like you who are wondering if God is calling them to start a new Home Church. If that is you, please get in touch with Alex or Hannah!
