Small Group Leader Resources

Doctrine Series

Here are the Bible Discussion Notes for leading your Small Group this week in our Doctrine Series.

Recommended Commentary

To complement the Bible Discussion Notes for this series a “Systematic Theology” is what you’d be looking for. Multiple copies of these (and other good) Systematic Theologies are available to borrow during this series from the Salt Leadership Team – email or shoot us a txt.

  • Simple shorter ones: Knowing God by J. I. Packer, Know the Truth by Bruce Milne, Basic Christianity by John Stott.
  • Longer more thorough ones: Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem, The Christian Faith by Michael Horton.
  • Then a hardcore one: Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin is epic (in every sense of the word).

Caring for People in your Small Group

In our groups we want to love each other like God loves us and there’ll be times people need specific help or care. These moments give great opportunities for your group to show practical love for each other. However, if a situation arises where your group is not able to sufficiently care for someone, get in touch with the care team at They’d love to help come up with a solution.
