As our community began to grow in Camparmò, people began to visit for prayer and community life. Being so remote, people couldn’t regularly travel. This inspired the community to create familial communities - members of community, from the same area, who could meet together more regularly locally for prayer and friendship. At the heart of this was (and still is) the Agapito.
When we read the resurrection encounters between Jesus and His followers, we notice how important sharing a meal is for Him and the early Christian community. After Pentecost, we read that the early Church would gather in each other’s home to eat together and share God’s Word together.
And at the heart of an Agapito is a meal among friends. Members of each familial (or local) community gather monthly for prayer together, formation based on God’s Word and time for sharing news or plans, before ‘breaking bread’ together. The Agapito is hosted by a coordinator, someone who has journeyed with the Lord and with community for a number of years, and who is commissioned to pastorally care for members locally.
The Agapito creates the environment for friendship to grow. Sometimes at bigger gatherings people can feel ‘one of the crowd’. In these smaller gatherings, everyone is seen, and there is time and space to care, support and pray for one another.
