Cell

Since 1945 this word has been increasingly used to describe a small group of Christians in any given locality who meet, usually in private homes, for prayer, Bible study, and fellowship, in order to equip themselves for Christian service in their everyday lives. Traditionally, however, a cell denotes one of three things: first, the private room, usually scantily furnished, of the member (monk or nun) or a religious order; second, the dwelling place of a hermit; third, a small religious house dependent on a larger convent or monastery.
