Why Groups?

don’t do life alone.

Groups are at the heart of discipleship at A2, and it is our desire for every member to be plugged into community through groups. In groups, you are known, cared for, and loved. We believe real life-change happens in the context of relationships. 

What's a Group?

laugh, love + share

It’s a diverse group of people who share a common love for Jesus that 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 meet on a weekly basis during the spring and the fall (12 weeks each semester). Groups stay together throughout the years as a covenant community and break over the summer with optional monthly social gatherings.

Most of our groups are what we would consider a covenant community of diverse believers with varying life-experience, seasons of life, and cultural backgrounds. Group members share a common faith in Jesus Christ and are able to learn from the diverse walks of life represented in each group. We also have some life specific groups through our Men’s, Women’s, Next Gen, and Marriage Ministries. 

Groups meet all over the Greater Birmingham area, primarily in homes. It is our goal that most are able to be in a group that is close to where you live. 

We work with groups to make sure that a lack of childcare doesn’t prevent anyone from being an active member of their group. Most groups will jointly hire a babysitter to watch all of the kids in that group in another room at the house. There are other options available to secure childcare, and we would love to work with you and your group to find the best option. If you want to be a part of a group but are concerned about childcare, please reach out to a staff member so that we can work to find the best solution.
