Small groups

Small groups at Trent Vineyard. It’s about living life together.

Trent Vineyard is a large church in Nottingham. While you'll meet many people on a Sunday, it’s through joining a small group that people really get to know each other and share life - listening, learning and supporting each other through its ups and downs.

What to expect?

Most small groups have around 6 to 20 people, meeting in homes and other venues across Nottingham on a weekly basis.

It’s a place where you can form friendships, share both the good times and the bad, and work out what it means to follow Jesus today. During a typical small group evening, you might worship together, pray for each other and have a time of sharing and teaching. Together, we can serve our communities in creative ways that we couldn’t do on our own.

Small groups for students

Student small groups are all about embracing what it means to follow Jesus while you’re at university. The aim is to make deep and lasting friendships, grow in our love for Jesus, make an impact on our city and have a whole lot of fun.

Our student small groups won’t appear on the map above, so if you’re interested, find out more on our Facebook page or get in touch at students@trentvineyard.org.

Special interest groups

We have a number of special interest groups for you to choose from based around a particular activity or interest. From film and craft to groups that meet to pray and raise awareness of projects we support locally and overseas.

We also have a number of sport and fitness groups you can join like, rock climbing, road cycling and football.

Check out the events calendar for more information.

​Specialist care and support

The primary way we offer pastoral care and support is through our small groups. We have a number of specialist groups, courses and contacts available for people with particular issues or vulnerabilities.

You can speak to your small group leader or send us an email to small.groups@trentvineyard.org.

  • For me, the community small group provided was a release from the fear of loneliness, but more than that, it opened up deeply fulfilling relationships I cherish to this day.

  • Nobody can walk the path that you walk. Nobody can take away the pain that you face or the difficult times that you might go through. But, they can stand beside you and smooth the path a little bit and they can hold you up when you’re too tired to go on.
