COnnect groups

Our small group gatherings are called Connect Groups. If we understand that church is more about something we are, rather than somewhere we go, then a small group hanging out each week is part of being the church!


Our Connect Groups get together through the week at the church, houses, coffee shops, or wherever works. Whether it is a Bible study or a BBQ, we want our Connect Groups to be central to living life together.

Need some more info?

Have a chat with one of our staff in the office, they will be able to give you a rundown on our church and the various connect groups.

If you feel there is something that we don't offer but would be beneficial, then let us know and we will endeavour to set it up!
