Leaders of small group ministry programs and groups are encouraged to join the UU Small Group Ministry Network. Members receive a monthly newsletter and a quarterly journal. Both include practical information about small group ministry. Other resources include many free session plans, several books and other publications available for purchase, and an online discussion group where ideas can be shared with others.

The June/July issue of Covenant Group News, the monthly publication, includes an article on what to do about low attendance. The Summer issue of the SGM Quarterly journal has an article on how small group ministry can help a congregation weather change.

A new resource from the UU Small Group Ministry Network is the publication Social Justice Work: Preparation, Action, Reflection Through Small Group Ministry, by Helen Zidowecki and Susan Hollister.
