Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for and contributions to the Chinese church.

In recent years, “pastoring through small groups” has gotten widespread attention as urban churches and church management by organizational systems thrive in China. Derived from the idea of a  cell , “small groups” has become one of emerging words in pastoral ministry. Large churches attempt to solve pastoral dilemmas through starting “cell groups”, “discipleship groups” or “group fellowships”. We have selected three articles to give you a glimpse of small groups in China. You can also read October's trending news as well as features about pastoral care and a prominent founder of China YMCA.
