In the last 50 years our society has become increasingly urban and fast-paced. As a result of this, to a great degree we have lost the sense of community and belonging enjoyed by past generations. Often individuals feel isolated and all alone.

Many Christians can identify with David in Psalm 142:4: “Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no-one cares for my life.” Therefore, we believe it is very important for the church to address this need and cultivate a sense of community and belonging through the fellowship ministries of the church.

Acts 2:42 mentions that the early Christians devoted themselves to fellowship:

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

It is interesting that they devoted themselves to fellowship in the same way as they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to worship. Fellowship was a high priority in their Christian lives.

Often when a church talks about fellowship, the idea relates only to social situations. While these are an important aspect of fellowship, the biblical concept of fellowship goes far beyond having a dinner or a coffee time together.

Koinonia is the Greek word for fellowship. It is translated in several ways in the New Testament such as “partnership” (Luke 5:10), “participation,” “sharing,” and “fellowship.” The focus of Christian fellowship is not an activity, but a relationship with other believers. The early Christians were not devoting themselves simply to activities, but to a relationship with each other. As believers, they were committed to a community relationship in Christ with each other.

In accordance with these biblical principles of fellowship, we seek to provide opportunities for the development of friendships and a sense of belonging and community.
