Small Groups


Missional Fellowships are our small groups in Richmond and its surrounding areas.

Life is meant to be lived together in community. Our church model is very easily broken down into two parts: our Sunday gatherings and our Missional Fellowships. We know it can be hard to form meaningful friendships where you live, so we have several small groups in Richmond and its surrounding areas that we warmly invite you to visit. Our Missional Fellowships are a significant part of our life at Community West and have three main aims:

God's Word

You’re invited to explore or grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ through a deeper understanding of Scripture and the gospel.

Accountable Relationships

You’re invited to be known by the members of your group, to give and receive love as you form spiritual friendships, and to care for each other's needs.

Serving and Outreach

You’re invited to experience the joy of serving, to take the invitation to find yourself when you give yourself up for others, and to do that all within the context of a supportive community.
