JOIN US THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
In the early church they met regularly in the Temple and in people’s homes. At C3 we believe in the importance of believers joining together in the big gathering of a weekend service and in the small gathering of a connect group.
The aim of these small gatherings is to bring people together to form friendships in the midst of fellowship so we can all grow in God. In connect groups you will find support as you care, love one another and pray together.
As our world changes with COVID-19 we want to do all we can to ensure everyone is kept safe, but we also want to ensure that we continue to meet together as a community. We would love to welcome you to join one of our many Connect Groups.
CONNECT GROUP STORY
WHAT ARE CONNECT GROUPS?
FOUR THINGS TO KNOW
1. THERE'S DIFFERENT TYPES OF GROUPS
We all have different interests, connect differently and need community for different seasons of our life. Whether you're looking for a prayer group, a cycling group, a group for a particular age or you just want to discuss the current series we're in, we've go it!
2. CONNECT GROUPS MEET ON A REGULAR BASIS
All our Connect Groups run at varying times throughout the week. We want to make sure no matter what your schedule is, there's a group for you! Our groups run fortnightly in alignment with our Church rhythm.
3. Connect groups meet across two SEMESTERS
Each year connect groups run for 2 semesters. We have a Summer launch (February) and a Winter launch (August). Connect groups run for 20 weeks per term and break in the summer and winter school holidays.
4. THERE'S A CONNECT GROUP FOR EVERYONE
The most important thing is that you find the right group for your stage and needs in life. We can help you to find a Connect Group. With this in mind we encourage you to attend a few different groups until you find the best fit for you.
