Small Groups form a very important part of church life at Chipping Campden Baptist Church.
Apart from Sunday worship these small groups or homegroups are the main regular opportunity for meeting together for prayer, praise and Bible study and they are excellent venues for people to effectively build their relationships with God.Many also provide social get-togethers such as meals, barbecues and evenings out.
We recently did some research and discovered that a high proportion of the fellowship are regularly involved in a small group (approximately 85%). We recognise the importance of small groups (including junior church and youth cell) as a key part of our life at CCBC.
We have encouraged each group to adopt an “Up, In and Out” mentality encouraging our relationship with God, each other and those yet to believe in Jesus.
The church has a number of small groups, including Homegroups in Chipping Campden and a number of the surrounding towns and villages. Any of them would be delighted to welcome you.
Each group has its own personality and you are welcome to attend where the style or location suits you. Most meet regularly each week, except when we get together at the church for a Church Vision Meeting to share what God is doing in the life of the church and to seek His leading for the future. These take place every other month on a Wednesday evening.
Housegroups meet in the following locations, usually on a Wednesday evening.
- Chipping Campden
- Chipping Campden – After Alpha Group
- Kinetic – young adults group (18+) usually meets in Chipping Campden
- Long Marston
- Shottery – Stratford
Other housegroups meet at different times in the week and are:
- Monday Evening : Moreton-in-the-Marsh (mainly prayer and intercession)
- Men’s Football : after football training on Tuesday evenings in Evesham
- Refresh : Mum’s & Toddlers – Tuesday mornings in Chipping Campden
- Welford-upon-Avon : Tuesday afternoon 2pm onwards

New groups are being planned to cater for people within the wide catchment area of the church. If there is not one currently in your area, why not pray about setting one up. Talk to our ministers to explore how appropriate this might be.
