Small Groups are communities where we can meet and enjoy friends, learn together
and grow closer to God. We offer a variety of groups: some groups to study the Bible together, others to offer support to one another, and others to engage in activities together.
If you find a group that interests you, you can sign up using the form at the bottom of the page.
