Community Groups

What are Community Groups?
These are small gatherings of people in our parishes. While these groups are geographically located, it is not required that you attend the community group in your area.  We encourage our members and regular attenders to be involved in these groups, for they are at the heart of building community. 

What Happens in Community Groups?
These groups meet twice a month for fellowship, prayer and gospel application.  It is our hope that Community Groups are the first place our people turn to for applying the gospel to their lives. Each group expects to experience Jesus Christ in its midst, in his presence and in his power, enabling lives to be transformed through mutual ministry. They are more than just Bible study or prayer groups. We recognize maturing in the Christian life is more than informational; it is transformational through relationships. You are invited to participate in any of the following community group gatherings listed below:
