We suggest you allow 30-45 minutes for the Group Discussion section of your Gathering. Within that time, you should aim to keep the main focus of the discussion on the Bible passage, key lessons and any life applications identified by the Group. There will tangents and moments when things go off topic; don’t fret if this happens - it’s to be expected! You can find a few tips that will help in the Facilitating Discussion Guidebook.
It’s likely that there will be moments where Group Members will clash due to different passions, personalities or beliefs. The best way to deal with this is before it happens. It’s a good idea to set expectations with the group of how you interact during Group Discussion. You can find out more in the Group Dynamics Training or the Navigating Relational Challenges Guidebook.
