A micro-church is a regular gathering of Symphony members and guests who worship together in homes on Sundays and during the week for mutual edification and mission. Our mission in micro-church is the same as that of the church: to raise up Kingdom workers tarnsformed by Christ to serve the world.
We believe that the church is both a gathering and a scattering, in that we're called to fulfill Jesus' commission to make disciples. We see micro-churches as a means of being scattered in order to serve our community.
Micro-churches meet together for Sunday service and also as a mid-week small group to both build one another up and to bless the surrounding neighborhoods and communities as audible and visible witnesses of Jesus.
The first step towards joining a micro-church is attending Micro-Church 101. MC 101 is a short orientation on micro-church where we'll share more about the vision and get you started in joining a micro-church.
Fill out the form below to register for the next Micro-Church 101 and a member of the staff will be in touch with you shortly. Until then, we invite you to join us for Sunday worship at the Paradise Rock Club (967 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA 02215) at 11am.
Our micro-churches meet in homes all around the Boston area (and possibly one day in other cities as well!) at various times on Sundays for Sunday service and also during the week for a mid-week gathering. Please fill out the form using the link above, and we’ll be happy to get you connected to the best option!
Each week, you can expect a welcoming environment where you’ll worship, be challenged by teaching, and be encouraged in fellowship with others in a small group in someone’s home. The actual order of worship will look similar to what you’re used to, just in a smaller group setting and led mostly by various members of the micro-church. Worship resources will be provided but there will also be opportunities to use your gifts in order to serve one another through things like hospitality, musical worship and prayer with and for one another.
During the week, micro-churches meet to study the word and also go out to the surrounding neighborhoods and communities to serve in various ways.
Yes! On the first Sunday of every month, all of the micro-churches will gather together at 9am at the Paradise Rock Club (967 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA) to worship in-person.
In addition, on some Fridays, all young adults are welcome to join our large group worship, New Song. You can learn more about New Song here.
Each micro-church looks different, based on each member's comfort levels and exposure. However, as a baseline, every micro-church should familiarize themselves with both our state orders and CDC guidelines, including the exemptions and allowances for religious gatherings, and communicate their plans clearly with those in attendance.
We understand that there may be different factors that preclude you from committing to a Micro-Church. If you don’t feel like you’re able or ready, or if you’re physically unable to join a micro-church, we encourage you to either join us at our 11am service at the Paradise Rock Club or worship with us online at symphonychurch.com/live
