Connect Groups are all about making every member of church a mature and active disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, as well as a meaningful way of doing life together as God’s family. They provide an opportunity for in-depth small-group bible study, training in Christian living and doctrines, purposeful, accountable relationships and mutual support and prayer.
Connect Groups meet weekly during term time, either in a Connect Group leader or member’s home, or at church. Connect Groups are also encouraged to attend the monthly Central Prayer Evening together, on the 1st Wednesday of each month.
Most Connect Groups meet on a midweek evening and there are groups for men, women and mixed men & women. Women’s morning Connect Groups meet on a Tuesday (Kirribilli) or Wednesday (Neutral Bay).
Groups are usually formed of people from the same congregation where possible. Women’s Morning Connect Groups that meet at church also have an opportunity to get to know people from different congregations. These groups are a great way to deepen your relationship with God and with others in your church family.
If you are still exploring Christianity, the best place for you to start is with one of our ‘Explore’ courses. Once you have done the course, chat to your leaders about what is the best next step for you.
If you are new to church, before joining a Connect Group, everyone attends our Belonging Course. This course is designed to introduce you to our church and all that we are about. Not sure why you should do Belonging first? Click here.
