Life Groups

lifegroups category
Life groups are an integral part of our church life. The purpose of a life group is to connect people who come together regularly for the common purpose of growing toward total devotion to Jesus Christ. Life groups offer an environment in which you find unique connection and community, where you can build relationships that are not always possible on a Sunday. Our goal is that everyone is connected and is part of a life group.  We have life groups with differing 'flavours' yet all moving toward the same purpose.

NOTE: If you are planning to attend a Life Group meeting for the first time, please call the church office first to confirm the day, time and venue.

For further information please contact the church office: 03 544 1094.
