Growth Groups are a great place to unpack some of the teaching from the Sunday service, and also a great opportunity to ask questions, pray for each other, and enjoy some good kai together, as well as strengthening old friendships and making new ones. We have a range of groups meeting at the moment. Come along or get in touch to find out more.
