A micro-church is a regular gathering of Symphony members and guests, in homes, where we worship Jesus through singing, teaching, and fellowship with one another, in order to make disciple-making disciples in Boston and around the world.
To join or host a micro-church, sign up below! Our pastoral staff is ready to equip you with the resources and coaching you need to reach your community.
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.
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! Multiple micro-churches gather together regularly to worship all together in person at our church office. Currently, half the groups meet on the first Sunday of the month and the other half meets on the last Sunday of the month. In all, each group worships in a larger group context once a month. You can register for Sunday service here.
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 there are different levels of comfort for every individual. If you don’t feel like you’re ready, or if you’re physically unable to join a micro-church, we encourage you worship with us online. Learn more about how you can do that by clicking here.
