Small groups at the start of the Church
When the power of Jesus redeeming death and resurrection exploded round the Mediterranean for the first time small groups sprang up everywhere the message spread. They were themselves first churches. It was through small groups that:
- the first new believers were taught, and prepared for baptism
- social action occurred
- missionary journeys (big and small) went on
- churches communicated with each other.
