Home groups are an important part of the Christian life. In the books of Acts we read that the early church meet together in the temple courts to hear the apostles teach and also in their homes. We meet together on Sundays for corporate worship, for prayer and to hear God’s word read and taught. We also meet together in homes to be connected and accountable to each other as we study God’s word and pray together. This is an environment where we can minister God’s grace to one another and work together in mission. In a nutshell, home groups are a community for discipleship, care, worship and mission.
There are various groups that meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly and cater for different people. If you want to join a group contact the church office and we’ll organise for someone to contact you.
Weekly at the Church
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (ESV)
In the spirit of God’s promise to King Solomon we desire to humble ourselves before God in prayer and to seek his face for our lives, for our church, for our community and for the nations. We do this personally, in corporate worship, in home groups and we set aside times during each week specifically for group prayer. History shows us that usually a major movement of God’s Spirit has followed a season of devoted and growing prayer. We desire for God to move in a mighty way in Singleton. Seeking God in this way expresses our humble dependence on him to act and he gets the glory.
Tuesday mornings 7:15 – 8:00 am

At Singleton Baptist Church we want to recover biblical manhood and encourage men to step up and be leaders. Leaders of their family and leaders in the church. Being a man is about taking responsibility.
Over the years we have run various teaching programs in small groups, including The Quest for Authentic Manhood, The Valiant Man and The Men’s Session.
We have various ministries for men and their sons including:
- Fortnightly bible study
- Monthly Men’s breakfast
- Yearly Man Camp
We have various formal and informal ministries specifically for women. These include:
- Residential women’s retreats where there is a chance to connect at a deeper level and teaching input through group studies or a speaker.
- In association with the mainly music mums there are evening meals and other social activities.
- In the broader Baptist community the Women-to-Women network provides a newsletter and runs retreats and conferences.
- The weekly Ladies Bible Study uses the Know Your Bible (KYB) resources from CWCI. This group meets at the church at 10.30 am on Tuesday for a cuppa and the study commences from 11.00 am. See Robyn Morante for more information or contact the church office.
