Rooted Groups

Why Rooted?

Connect with God. The Church. Your Purpose.

Do you believe God has uniquely created you with a purpose and plan? What if you heard God speak and you felt the love of Jesus in a profound way? Imagine yourself in a community of people who cared for you, listened to you and supported you.

Rooted is a catalyst for life change, a discipleship experience, where discussion is held in a small group environment, creating a safe space for biblical exploration and practical learning experiences.

Rooted Experiences

Rooted has been so transformational for many people because it is based around key group experiences of prayer, serving, sharing and celebration.

Serve Experience: The group will have the opportunity to participate in a community service project in addition to the 10 weekly meetings.

Celebration Experience: After the 10 weekly meetings, all the Rooted groups will gather together for a celebration of what God has done. This celebration includes baptisms, worship and a special commissioning by Pastor Brian.

African Roots

Pastor Muriithi is the creator of Rooted. He wrote it while he was the Discipleship Pastor at Nairobi Chapel, Nairobi, Kenya.
