I'll be advertising the group over the next couple of weeks. Those who want to take part will need to drop me a line and I'll set them up with a password.
- CyberCell is an on-line Cell Group. Cells are ways of "doing Church" in a small group which focus on four key elements: Welcome (getting to know each other), Worship (relating to God together), Word (engaging with the Bible together) and Witness (supporting one another in mission).
- The members of the group all have access to a password protected web site which only they can see. The activity of the group takes place through the web site.
- The group is intended to serve the needs of those who find traditional meetings difficult, e.g. commuters, those who work long or irregular hours or the housebound.
- The group has a facilitator who has the responsibility for coordinating their activity. The facilitator will often be the one who posts discussion starters or questions on the forums - or arranges for other people to do so. The facilitator will also deal with issues concerned with the membership of the group.
- New members need to apply to join and will be welcomed in with the agreement of all members of the existing group. A maximum of twelve members are allowed before the group should consider splitting. If this happens the two new groups will each be assigned a new facilitator.
- Members commit to visit the site at least once a week and contribute to the discussions. There are no "observers". Home group meetings usually last two hours so it would be reasonable to expect CyberCell members to commit to spend two hours thinking, praying and commenting.
