Finding Community at A10

From the beginning, God said it was not good for man to be alone, and we agree. Life is best when lived in community with others who can encourage, help and challenge us to grow. At Area 10, we encourage everyone to meet in small groups outside of our typical Sunday morning service. These are casual gatherings of 10-15 people in homes throughout the city. Most groups meet for 1.5 - 2 hours and during that time will hang out, learn about the Bible and pray, and no Bible knowledge is necessary. 

Starting Point

We encourage anyone new to A10 to join a Starting Point Group. A new group will begin each month and meet for 8 weeks. After a Starting Point group, we will help you plug into a small group at Area 10.

Small Groups

Small Groups meet weekly for 16-week sessions in the fall and spring. Groups are either topical, with a focus on a particular book or study, or sermon centered which will focus on the scripture and topic of the upcoming Sunday message.

A10 University

Between our small group sessions we offer Area 10 University.  A10 U is comprised of in-depth classes on a variety of topics. To learn more about Area 10 University, click here.

Summer of Fun

During the summer we plan Area 10 Summer of Fun events to help people make connects with others at A10 with dozens of one-time, low key events. 


Let's start here.

Everyone new to Area 10 starts here. Starting Point is an 9-session small group conversation about faith. Whether you're new to faith, curious about God, or coming back to church after some time away, it's a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued and no question is off limits. We will launch groups monthly (except December).

These groups are for everyone. Regardless of where you are on the spectrum, there is something for you. It may answer questions for some, and may help others find new ways to explain their faith to others.

Each week groups of 6-12 people will meet and talk about a different topic. The topic will be introduced in a video that you can watch at home or with the group, and then a group leader will ask a few questions to get the conversation going.

Books are a suggested donation of $10. If childcare is needed, we will do our best to provide care at our group, or help cover the costs for your own sitter. 

Still have questions? Great! Just email Tommy at


Spring 2019 Small Groups Coming soon

Our Spring semester of small groups start the week of Feburary 4th, 2019 and wrap up in early May. These groups meet in homes around the city throughout the week and either study along with the current sermon series or choose a special topic. Small Groups are designed to help you dive deeper into community and your relationship with God. Past topics have included Financial Peace University, book series, a meditation group, a pregnancy loss healing group, and much more. Check back here in January for a full list of small groups available in the spring!

In the meantime, check out what Area 10 University classes are being offered in January.

If you have any questions or want a recommendation for which group would be best suited for you, please email

A10 University is a place to take in-depth classes in a 4-8 week time span that we typically offer when small groups are not actively meeting. The goal is to help equip you in specific areas of life by diving deeper and learning from experienced teachers. Size is limited, so register early!

What is The “Area 10 summer of fun”?

Richmond is an awesome place to live, with plenty of things to do in the city and surrounding areas.

We love planning great opportunities to connect with others in the community over common hobbies and interests, so each summer we compile a calendar with dozens of events designed to get you out into the city and meet others in the Area 10 community.

They are low-key, super fun events that range from hiking and brewery tours to movie nights and family play dates. Check back next summer for our next line-up of Summer of Fun events at
