Community Groups

We believe that living in community is an essential element of the Christian faith, which means sharing the ups and downs of life with one another. One forum for sharing life is our Community Groups.  These groups meet across the city on different days and times and provide you with the opportunity to connect with other believers in small group settings.  There is a group for everyone, regardless of age or walk of life.  Please contact the group leaders listed below for more information.
