Connect Groups


The focus of connect groups is on building relationships and ESPN; in other words, the groups are to include: Encouragement - Scripture - Prayer - Next Steps (ESPN). The next steps for some may to be baptised or come into Church Partnership, or to join a Life Group.

The church Connect Groups are term based: January – Easter; April – July; September – December and run for about 12 weeks or so at a time. At the start of each term there is a Connect Sunday when people have a chance to hear about them, and sign up to a group.

They are open groups for anyone to attend from inside or outside the Church. There are two stipulations about the nature of the group i. must be Christ-honouring, ii. and have at least 6 people signed up in order to begin.

Life Groups


Life Groups are the ideal place for people to be discipled personally and grow in the ministry of Christ. They are the backbone of the church, the basic structure in which people mature in faith. They run continually with each Life Group a kind of mini-church, a microcosm of the whole. That means the most important aspect of church life, alongside the main services, is the Life Group. In some respects, the Life Groups are even more important, because the Life Groups release God’s people into becoming disciple-making disciples.

Life Groups are not just an alternative to mid-week meetings of the church. Nor are they just another meeting in the week – just a small group meeting, rather than a large group meeting held on a Sunday. Life Groups are a group of people who are in close, daily contact with each other and who are committed to working together to grow as disciples and to become disciple makers of others. The Life Groups may have just one formal meeting a week, fortnight or month, but group life extends far beyond that.

To be part of a Life Group means that you have a group of fellow-soldiers and fellow-workers around you, who are committed to you, to your growth as a Christian and to your development as a Christian Kingdom Builder.
