Micro-Church is Knox's small group network.  As the name suggests, each group is a church.  This is in keeping with Jesus' definition of church as "where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them" (Mt 18:20).  

Each Micro-Church group is given the freedom to function as an autonomous community within the larger church community.   

God primarily is a relational God, "God is love" (1 John 4:8).  As beings made in the image of God, people are primarily relational beings.  As a consequence, we all have a deep-seated need for the social interaction and a need to belong to a community.  The intent of Micro-Church is to create a forum where meaningful social interaction can take place.  In reality, this means people connecting with each other takes precedence over get a job done; hospitality trumps function.  Eating together, Fun, Friendship, Enjoying others company, meaningful conversation, feeling at ease, a low threat environment, no pressure, discovery, atmosphere, and spontaneity, are all concepts that convey what we mean by Micro-Church.
