Small groups of people doing life together
Parklands’ Connect Groups are small groups that meet all over the city and where we can do life together. No two groups are the same: some meet because of common interests eg football, surfing, art, music; some meet in the pub; some like to get stuck into God’s Word and others simply like to hang out. We know at Parklands that one size doesn’t fit all, but we really hope you will find your fit and join in with one of our groups.
Alongside sunday morning services, Connect Groups are the place where we can encourage each other in our faith and deepen our relationship with God. They are safe spaces where we can explore faith together and learn from each other.
Following Jesus has more far-reaching implications than simply attending church on a sunday. Connect Groups provide a setting that is ideal for transparency and openness, finding friendship and accountability.
To be like Jesus means to live lives of faith and action. Connect Groups encourage Jesus-centred action and will often help equip and provide opportunities for us to explore areas in which we can serve. We want to be people who reach out to the lost, broken and hurting and to see our city and world won for Christ.
