Evangelisation Circles

Exploring Evangelisation Circles

Belong to the Church. Believe in Christ. Become a Disciple. Evangelisation Circles.


Seeking missionary renewal through ‘Evangelisation Circles’ that gather, pray and go. 

Circles in Community

The hopeful, doubtful, committed, questioning. All can Belong.

As small groups, Evangelisation Circles can gather anywhere, anytime. This could be within the context of a parish, university, school, ecclesial community, ministry, movement, workplace or just amongst a group of friends. 


Circles can form in Parishes including youth, young adult and adult prayer and small groups


Teachers and leaders may invite students involved in education and ministry contexts into Circles


Circles may go beyond traditional Church structures, including into ecclesial communities.


Circles may even be formed amongst families, accompanying new family members into the life of the Parish.

Belong Circles are a simple structure that bring to life the mission of evangelisation; that which is ‘the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize.” (Evangelii Nuntiandi, 14)

Three elements to every Circle.



Fostering a sense of belonging.



Exploring our shared belief.



Becoming missionary disciples.


Circles gather on a regular basis (weekly, fortnightly or monthly). In this context, they are encouraged to explore and share their faith.

This first focus area fosters belonging. Through gathering, the Circle leaders seeks to invite individuals into a personal encounter with the person of Jesus Christ and His Church. 


Circles focus on discovering and developing a relationship with Jesus, grounded in community. All resources have been designed to develop a personal prayer life. With resources currently being tailored to children, youth and adults, the program includes key foundations for faith and mission formation. 

All resources are all available for free.


Circles commit to missionary acts between gatherings. The mission of the Circle centres around these acts of charity and outreach. 

Missionary acts integrated into the Circle sessions include a focus on engagement into the life of the Church community. 

All of these small acts continue to draw the very identity of the Circle to the mission of evangelisation.
