COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Small Groups

Small Groups are the best place to form deep relationships, meeting together regularly to talk about life, faith & culture.

Small Groups are typically held in one of the attendee’s house, focusing on life, our faith and culture, in a relaxed environment.

We currently have small groups running on multiple different nights of the week, over a large range of age groups.

Small Groups are great at connecting with new people and asking questions in a relaxed and safe environment.

Please ask around on Sunday, or just Contact Us about getting involved!
