Groups: Making Christ known together!

We believe that the Church is not a stone building or something you go to, it's a family you belong to. Our definition of groups comes from our understanding of Acts 2. The community of all believers, devoting themselves to teaching, friendship, hospitality, prayer, worship, generosity and outreach. Therefore, our groups are an opportunity to help people connect and build friendships in the church, grow in God, and open our lives up to those who don’t know Christ. Our groups will be inclusive and welcoming to all!

We have people in the church who lead our groups and are supported by the leadership team. Contact the group leaders for more info about their group.


We will be running an alpha course starting on the 1st November and lasting 6 weeks. Sign up by contacting Join Paul & Penny's group as they together for food, friendship and community. They generally meet on Thursdays at 6:30pm and families with kids are welcome.

Part of our mission values is to serve and resourse communties. Kim leads our community action group and works with local community leaders and connects the church to serve in a variety of different ways; from litter picking, garden clean up, local youth project support and hampers at Christmas. We value prayer so much that we love to pray in various ways. Women together, Men together and all together. We love gathering in the presence of God and enjoy worshipping Jesus, as well as praying for the one another, the community, churches, and the nations!
