Community vs Individualism

Been thinking a bit about just how individualistic our society is - and how hard it is for us to think in any other ways, how caught we are in our individualistic society. I've especially been thinking about that in comparison to the world of the NT and what it means for us as we think about what it means to be communities of faith in todays world. It seems to me that much of our liquid church type thinking is too individualistic but yet much of the church communities who emphasise belonging and strong commitment are too exclusive and bounded.
How do we challenge ourselves away from our individualism without becoming exclusive and bounded?
