Why Groups?

don’t do life alone.

We believe real life-change happens in the context of relationships. You weren’t meant to do life alone, so don’t. Learn more about small group life at A2 below + find a group that best fits you! Remember, even Jesus had a small group.

What's a Group?

laugh, love + share

It’s a group of people who meet regularly in someone’s home or other meeting place to eat together, laugh together, study the Bible together, pray together + just do life together. It’s community at its best: authentic relationships grounded in biblical faith.

Are Groups Important?

created to connect

We really believe being involved in authentic, biblical community isn’t optional for the child of God. It’s essential. We believe that we were made for relationships + that lasting life change, personal transformation, + spiritual growth best occur in the context of authentic biblical community (Acts 2:42; 46-47; 1 John 4:7, 13).

Got Questions?


Group FAQS.

Groups often meet on a weekly basis throughout the year in what we call groups seasons. There are three group seasons: spring, summer, + fall. Even though most groups meet weekly, there are groups that meet less frequently.

We have groups for every season of life with a wide range of topics + interests. From kids to senior adults. There are bible groups, book study groups, fellowship groups, prayer groups, service groups. There are groups for men, women, married couples, young professionals, moms, college students, + more. 

Groups meet all over the Greater Birmingham area in coffee shops, cafes + homes. There is likely a group close to where you do life in the Birmingham area. If there isn’t one, we encourage you to lead one!

You can! Yes… you! Leading a group isn’t as hard as you may think. If you don’t see a group that fits you, we encourage you to lead one because it’s likely there are others who feel the same. Group Leaders go through a simple training at A2, but you don’t have to have all the answers or any experience to lead a group. Have questions about leading? Ask us! We’re here to help you + your group succeed.

Some groups offer childcare + others don’t. You’ll be able to see this information on the group page. If you want to join a group that doesn’t offer childcare + can’t afford a babysitter, let us know. We want to help you get connected to a group.
