Small Group Types

public groups

Public Groups are hosted online by a trained Facilitator (through Zoom). This option is great if you want to find and connect with other like-minded women who are searching for community. You can browse and request to join a small group on our online platform. 

private groups

Private Groups are hosted in the home of your Facilitator (in person). This option is great if you want to meet and dive deeper with other like-minded women in your area. You must receive an invitation to join one of these local groups

If you'd prefer to host a group in person with your friends or community group, consider applying to be a Facilitator!

devotions

Ten nights of Conversations are framed around ten opening devotionals based on The Samaritan Woman at the Well in John 4.

discussion

Key discussion questions about faith and real life are designed to engage and go below the surface.

3 Things That Make This Different:

real talk

We speak with a challenging voice that stays away from “Christianese”. We encourage authenticity and vulnerability – there’s no judgment here.

real inclusivity

We view young women as equal regardless of life stage. We do not identify you as either “wife” or “single.” You are more than a “mother” and you are not your “career role.” You are God’s gorgeous daughter, and you are welcome here.

real life

We are all imperfect women figuring out this whole Jesus thing. We are committed to replacing gossip with gospel and keeping it real over a glass of wine & a good ol’ charcuterie board.

The Well Practice is a place for authentic conversation, deep relationship, and real life transformation. It is thought-provoking and powerful. I would recommend this program to any woman who wants to get real about faith and form meaningful friendships.

This could be you....

As someone who has been attending church since before I can remember I found The Well Practice to be a refreshing, reflective journey towards a closer, more intimate relationship with God our creator and Jesus our saviour. I went into this 10 week practice thinking it would be a fun way to meet other girls on similar spiritual paths to mine and looking to make strong connections and The Well Practice did just that and much more, pulling past hurts and disappointments out of me and allowing Jesus to meet me in those dark places, surrounded by a core group of Godly women to support me each step of the journey.

The Well Practice allows you to be truly vulnerable and open in a safe space of other women seeking the same thing.

suzy found support in a safe space

I am so thankful for the women in my group who helped guide me through each conversation, for being vulnerable and loving. I have never felt so close to God or a stronger relationship with Christ. I am so thankful for this program and the women in it for pushing me to dive deeper into faith.

The Well Practice had one goal: to get me closer to God. And that’s exactly what happened.

SUCCESS STORIES

I needed this far more than I expected. It put me on the path to finding God and made me realize how desperately I needed to rededicate myself and my time to God.

Above all, it reminded me that being a Christian is not easy. Serving God and His Kingdom is both the hardest and most rewarding thing we will ever do. The world is a broken place and we will be broken by it if we live by the world and not by God. We are called to go out into the brokenness and share the love He freely gives. I knew all this but The Well Practice gave me the tools I needed to implement the necessary change in my own life so that I can become the woman He created. So that I can fully embrace, see, and believe that I am loved beyond any measure I could imagine. I am enough as long as I am with God.

we can help because we've been there

but now we know how to help!

The Well Practice was created by Malissa & Nicole (hey heyy!), two girls who have been massively impacted by Jesus.

We realized there was a gap for Christian women our age, and we wanted to fill it. But more than that, we knew what WE most needed. We needed community. We needed solid Christian friendships. We were pretty much a mess.

We used to be very far from God – living life our own way, running away from pain and towards pleasure, getting into all sorts of things that seem “normal” to the world. But they were things that left us empty and broken.

Today, after experiencing God’s healing and transformative work in our lives, we are deeply dependent on Jesus and have truly never felt more at peace. We have been changed from the inside out. A relationship with Jesus can do that.

This was our story: experiencing incredible transformation from truly knowing Him. And we want the very same for you, too.

Here’s what else we know: You weren’t meant to do this alone. In order to get from where you are to where you want to be, you need to be part of an authentic community. That’s why we created The Well Practice.

The Fall Intake will run weekly from September 18th - December 7th, 2022 on the day of your choosing.

what is the group format each week?

Each night consists of a simple 3 part structure: Devotional, Discuss, and Dig Deeper.

Devotional: Your group will read through a short story based on the Samaritan Woman in John 4 to set up each night’s conversation. Each story is centered around a different topic.

Discuss: The majority of the evening consists of interactive discussion questions designed to go below the surface. Discussions are relevant to different life stages, struggles, relationship statuses, or denominations.

Dig Deeper: This is the homework that everyone completes for the following week and is heavily geared towards self-reflection and evaluation. Homework review is often incorporated near the end of each night.

is the well associated with a denomination?

We are a non-denominational organization and welcome all faith backgrounds. We take the authority of Scripture very seriously, and we encourage you to read our Statement of Faith here.

what's the difference between in-person & online groups?

You must be invited by a Facilitator in order to participate in an in-person group. These groups meet in the home of your Facilitator. A snack plan will be organized which will include food and beverages each week. These groups are ideal if you prefer face-to-face interaction.

Online groups meet exclusively online. These groups are ideal if you prefer the convenience of staying in your own home. These groups make The Well Practice available to you from any city and in any country.

Both group options will receive a hard copy of The Well Practice workbook in the mail.
