CFC-FFL
Household Meetings

Every member of CFC-FFL belongs to a cell group called a household. It is intended for personal pastoral support. It meets regularly.

Following are the meetings at different levels.

Household members
The household meets once a week (led by the Household Servant), every week throughout the whole year1. 3 are regular household meetings2 and 1 is a chapter prayer assembly.

The household servant has a 1-to-1 with the host prior to the household meeting.3

Household Servant
The Household Servant has 3 lower household meetings (per above), 1 chapter prayer assembly, and 3 upper household meetings (with the Unit Servant). Of these latter 3, 2 are regular household meetings and 1 is a service meeting4 5.

The Unit Servant has a 1-to-1 with the host prior to the household meeting.

Unit Servant
The Unit Servant has 3 lower household meetings (per above), 1 chapter prayer assembly, and 3 upper household meetings (with the Chapter Servant)6. Of these latter 3, 2 are regular household meetings and 1 is a service meeting.

The Chapter Servant has a 1-to-1 with the host prior to the household meeting.

Chapter Servant
The Chapter Servant has 3 lower household meetings (per above), 1 chapter prayer assembly, 2 upper household meetings (with the Cluster Servant), and attends the Seniors Assembly.

The Cluster Servant has a 1-to-1 with the host prior to the household meeting.

Cluster Servant
The Cluster Servant has 2 lower household meetings (per above), 1 chapter prayer assembly7, 2 upper household meetings8, and attends the Seniors Assembly.

District Servant
The District Servant normally belongs to a fraternal group9, which meets twice a month for a regular household meeting. He may or maynot handle a lower household. He normally leads the Seniors Assembly. He calls for service meetings as needed.

Other matters
Regular household meetings may be canceled in favor of certain activities, such as a community teaching or a community event. This has to have the approval of the Chapter Servant or the District Servant.


1 Except Holy Week and Christmas break (usually 2nd half of December). Every 5th week is a fellowship activity.
2 Normally in the homes of members, on rotation basis. Regular meetings mean inclusion of the 3 basic ingredients of worship, sharing/discussion and fellowship.
3For couples, this dialogue can be a 1-to-1 (husband-to-husband and separately, wife-to-wife) or a 2-on-2.
4 The service meeting may or may not have regular worship but should always have prayers to start. It may or may not include the wives (for couples), who should attend only when what is to be discussed needs their inputs. We stress the importance of service meetings, where the situation of the household and its members are thoroughly discussed.
5 The household meetings, including the service meeting, should not be held on the prayer assembly week. The meetings should be evenly spaced out during the 4 weeks of the month.
6 The Cluster Servant has no formal or regular service meeting with the Chapter Servants. The Cluster Servant’s basic task is to give pastoral care to the Chapter Servants and not to run or govern the chapters. If there is a need to take up a service matter, this can be done during their 1-to-1.
7 He attends one prayer assembly each month, doing the rounds of the different chapters.
8 Not necessarily with the District Servant.
9 A fraternal group is a household where there is no one overall head, but where rather the members act as heads over each other. Whoever is the host leads the meeting (worship and topic). A fraternal group is set up in situations where there are no other leaders above the top leader in a particular territory.
