Groups range in size and topic, reflecting a diverse variety of passions and interests.


They run in semester cycles (fall, spring, and summer), so you can easily explore different topics based on your current season.


You can join an in-person group (we encourage you to find one near where you live) and virtual group. The meeting cadence also varies per group. And, you can join in at any time!

Not Sure Where to Start?

Go beyond the surface through Alpha Groups — as we explore life’s biggest questions together in a safe, open, and honest space. (Plus, free food!)

More About Groups

Whether you are exploring faith in God, are a new believer, or you are a long-time, committed follower of Jesus, we believe you will both enjoy and benefit from becoming a part of an Echo Group. At Echo.Church, our groups typically consist of 8–15 people that meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly in different locations around the Bay Area. They are one of the best ways to grow in your faith, build friendships with others, and impact the community.

Joining an Echo Group helps you integrate into the life of Echo.Church so that you can experience the benefits of being connected into a community of faith. Echo groups are the lifeblood of Echo.Church.

Yes, but we encourage you to join a group closest to where you live or the campus you attend since that will make it easier for you to have long term friendship and connection with those in your group.

No, all groups are free, with the exception of when there’s a cost for curriculum or supplies related to your group. In those cases, the cost will be mentioned in your group description.

Our Echo Groups in Spring and Fall usually run for a four-month period (semester cycle). However, Summer Echo Groups start in early June and conclude at the end of July. If groups have already launched, you are welcome to join mid-semester. Though our groups run in semester cycles, many of them meet long-term giving you an option to continue in your group semester to semester, or switch groups based on your season of life.

Some groups offer childcare, which would be noted in the group description. In those cases there might be a small fee.
