Small Groups are groups of 8-12 people who meet weekly in each others homes.
As a church, we want to ensure that everyone who joins All Saints has a place to belong. Small Groups are groups that aim to spur us on towards Christian growth, be places to cultivate meaningful friendships as well sources of support.
If you haven’t yet joined a Small Group, All Saints has groups meeting most Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays from Lausanne to Villars. Each group has its own identity and style especially our Family Small Groups that offer small group for entire families. Below you will find a brief description of each one. If you would like to join a group, contact us.

Family Small Group
It’s almost impossible to belong to a Small Group when you have young children. These Small Groups seek to provide a remedy for this, drawing together families with young (and older) children twice a month for worship, bible study and activities.
There are three Family Small Groups meeting at the moment. They are coordinated by Clive & Yvonne Atkinson, Maxine & Richard Kibble, and Tim & Margaret.
