Challenges for Homegroup Leaders

Welcome to September! All around the country, Churches have homegroups starting up for a new term. All ready for a new Bible study series. But how can homegroup leaders make the bible studies more interesting?

Here are 10 challenges for Homegroup leaders in your church.

  1. Spend the entire evening speaking in a bad Russian accent.
  2. Serve mug loads of espresso, accidentally make people think it’s decaf.
  3. (If you’re hosting) Don’t tidy up before housegroup. Act like everyone is making a huge mess of your lovely place.
  4. This requires some planning in advance, but ensure any and all toys are arranged ready for a bible study.
  5. When planning, crowdsource questions for your bible study.
  6. Plan the bible study while using the The Message version of the Bible.
  7. Illustrate every question with a Simpsons video clip.
  8. Doing a session on Baptism? Throw water balloons at each other.
  9. Leading a session on Hebrews chapter 4? Lead the Bible Study naked.
  10. Lead a session on “Waiting on God”. Encourage everyone to lay down on the floor / relax on the sofa, while you play a relaxing CD. DO NOTHING ELSE IN THE EVENING!

Any more ideas?

    The worry is that the waiting on God one is seen as the best session you’ve ever done.
