Interested in leading a Connect group?
Learn more about becoming a connect group leader.
Connect groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why connect groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.
We ask everyone interested in leading a connect group to watch the short videos below and read through some of the useful information telling you more about about the culture of our church. Also check out some group ideas to get you thinking.

how we care
People matter to us because they matter to God and we place people at the top of our priority list. This will mean mess, time investments, challenging situations and all the complexities that come with relationships but it's worth the effort because people matter.
How we lead
These principles work hard just like we do. We use them every day, ranging from discussing new ideas to deciding on the best solution in a complex relational issue. These strengthen our team from top to bottom and help us develop leaders around us.
how we help people grow
Discipleship is about having your character formed by the Spirit. It involves responding to God, living in fellowship with other Christians and having your entire personality - your instincts and everything - shaped by Jesus.
