Central Connect

The early church met in small groups but also there were times when they were all together.  That is what our Central Connect group is all about - from time to time we all come together to corporately pursue Jesus and his call upon us to pastor the city.

Micro Connect


Micro Connect groups are small groups of people (2-6) who commit to journey together through this current season.  


The Micro Connect groups follow the example of Jesus and Paul who both had travelling companions.  Jesus had an inner group, within the twelve, consisting of Peter, James and John.  Whereas Paul had various fellow travellers, at different times, on his missionary journeys - including Barnabas, Silas, Timothy and Luke. 


Through this difficult time we are encouraging our Micro Connect groups to meet together once or twice a month.  The goups are all about being prayerful supportive friends encouraging one another in our pursuit of Jesus and in the mission he has called us to.
