» Small Groups
Real life happens every day. Don’t face it alone. Sometimes life comes in the form of joy and happiness; other times it comes in pain and suffering. No matter what your season in life, our desire is to help you connect.
Being part of a small group allows your relational and spiritual journey to be taken deeper and provides a place where real and authentic community takes place. You can enjoy doing life together…study the Bible, laugh, cry, care for each other and serve together.
We have many types of groups. Some meet weekly, others fortnightly or monthly. Some are during the day, others run in the evening. Some are specifically for youth, young adults, adults in their 20’s and 30’s, couples, mothers, men, women while others are mixed demographics.
God designed us to be connected with each other so we can continue to grow in every facet of our lives, and we believe that being a part of a small group will impact your life in a positive way.
