We want to equip you to grow in your relationship with Jesus and others. We believe Groups and Courses are two ways to grow spiritually.
Join an in-person group near you or connect with a virtual group. Groups study the Bible or follow a topic-based curriculum. Discover more about yourself and who God is. Groups meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly throughout the year and are a great opportunity to connect with others in the same stage and season of life (Men, Women, Family/Couples, Young Adult, and Singles)
Gain confidence and connect with other people.
Sign up for a course that will meet for several weeks on topic important to you, gain confidence in that area, and connect with other people in the process. We offer courses throughout the year at various campus locations.

Group leaders are in the business of developing relationships with God and with others. As believers we value imitating Jesus and His leadership style. We have gathered resources to help you lean into Jesus’ teachings, encourage your group and equip you to lead well.

At Kensington, groups form around common interests, life stages or passions. Leading is about finding what you want to study or like to do, and inviting people to do it with you. We have groups that run together, eat together, read books together, study the Bible together, and play ball together. It is all about creating a community that is experiencing transformation through Jesus.
Some groups offer childcare while other groups make arrangements like sharing the cost of babysitters. Check out group descriptions to find something that fits or contact our Kensington Kids team at your campus for recommendations of trusted babysitters.
Groups meet on different days and times throughout the week. Some meet every week, some meet every other week, and some meet once a month. Use the Group Finder (link) to see when and how often each group meets.
Some groups discuss the weekend series while others study a book or scripture. We want our groups to have the flexibility to discuss the topics most important to them at this season or stage of life.
Group leader set the schedule, culture and tone for the group. Group leaders connect with Kensington staff and volunteer teams to stay connected and informed. Group leaders help their people take a next step in their faith.
Leading a group is not about knowing all the answers. Once you commit to lead, our team will train you, encourage you and answer any questions you have as you get started. Kensington will help you lead well as a group leader. We offer resources, training, encouragement and coaching.
