This research explores the impact of small Reflexive Groups on personal and spiritual development. A Reflexive Group was set up consisting of four people who are ordinands, and facilitated over a period of eight weeks. Their experience was then evaluated through a focus group which was recorded and transcribed, with the data being analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. The research shows that Reflexive Groups can enable a transformative experience at both a personal and spiritual level. The value of Reflexive Groups in a congregational context is unclear, but the research concludes that being a part of a Reflexive Group should be an essential part of ministerial training.
