Baptist Discipleship flats

are simply flats with a purpose; shared res­i­den­tial spaces where fol­low­ers of Jesus can be inten­tional in the way they are dis­ci­pled in com­mu­nity. What dif­fer­en­ti­ates dis­ci­ple­ship flats from a regular flat­ting sce­nario are four key commitments:

1 — Prayer

Every flat prays together. We do a rota­tion of common prayer, lectio divina and com­mu­nally read prayers. We pray for our neigh­bour­hoods, flat­mates and churches

2 — connecting to the local Baptist Church

Dis­ci­ple­ship flats don’t replace church, they work in part­ner­ship with the church for deep dis­ci­ple­ship. The com­mit­ment to the local church may vary from flat to flat.

3 — An expression of neighbourhood love

It’s time to dream! What does mission look like locally? Let’s be cre­ative in the way we connect with, and show the love of Jesus to, our neighbourhood. 

4 — Gathering of the tribe

A high­light of flat life. This is a time of con­nec­tion with others who are part of a dis­ci­ple­ship flat. We use our time together for train­ing, build­ing rela­tion­ships, and sharing what’s going on in our neighbourhood.
