Growing together in following Jesus

As followers of Jesus, our Sunday worship gatherings are vital…. but not enough. Not if we wish to grow in following Jesus. Not if we want to grow as a family of faith. Something more is needed.

We believe regularly connecting with other Christians helps us grow together in following Jesus.

Growth Groups help us do this.

What could a Growth Group develop in your life?

Growth Groups cultivate 5 keys for growing in faith.

Word & Prayer

Deepening in your relationship with God

Connection

Knowing others and being known.

Generosity & Service

Living for the good of others.

Discipleship

Following and helping others follow Jesus

Rhythm

Developing healthy habits for life.

A Growth Group that fits!

We encourage you to join a ‘Growth Group’ which meets regularly during the week.
There are many different groups to suit the variety of schedules and focus.
