We are a growing church, but that doesn’t mean you will be lost in the crowd. Our Community Groups meet weekly or fortnightly across the city, and are a great way to meet people, make friends, get closer to God and make a difference in your local community. We have several different types of Community Group here at Severn…

Open-House groups

Open House Groups are exactly that – people opening their home for small groups of people to come together every week or every fortnight. They are how we stay small as our church gets bigger. They’re a place to make friends, to share life, to eat, pray, worship, and serve our city together. Each Open House will be different – perhaps try one out in your local area, but then do feel free to try out as many as you like and see which one suits you!

Activity groups

Our termly Activity Groups are a great way to share a common hobby or interest with a group of like-minded people, once a week or once a fortnight.

Course groups

Course groups are an opportunity to spend a term looking at a particular subject, run by a specialist in that area. They are a great way to learn and grow, as well as to get to know others on the course.


Our networks help people connect with others who are at a similair age and stage in life, or who share a common interest.

How to sign up

You can sign up for any of our community groups through our website and you can join any of the Open House groups at any point, as they run all-year-round apart from short breaks over Christmas, Easter and during August. Contact for more information.
