The cell group is a form of church organization that is used in some Christianchurches. Cell groups are generally intended to personalize Christian fellowship, and are always used in cell churches and may also be employed by other forms of organization but with less emphasis. The cell group differs from the house church in that the group is part of an overall church congregation, whereas the house church is a self-contained congregation.
They may also be called growth groups, small group ministries, home groups, connect groups, home friendship groups, home care groups, house fellowships or small Christian communities.
The term "homegroup" is also commonly used in Twelve-step programs to denote the meeting most frequently attended by the program participant.
