At RCD, we like to say we gather large and we gather small. Gathering large each Sunday is how we come together to worship in unity, but gathering small is how we come together to foster community and face-to-face growth. We gather small in groups called ‘parishes’, with each parish being led by an elder. Community groups are often the front door to church, but at RCD our Sunday gathering is the front door – the parish is the dinner table.
Currently, parishes are conducted in various formats, but we look forward to when they meet regularly, face-to-face!
