Small Groups

We are a Small Group driven church.

The purpose of Small Groups is to foster communities that love, follow, and honour Jesus. Small Groups are typically a combination of Bible study, worship, prayer, and fellowship but each group has its own flavour. In Small Groups, we do life together and share where we are encountering Christ, because there is life when we encounter Christ.

We’ll meet in our home, learn and grow as couples, as we explore more deeply our top 10 emotional needs in a committed relationship.   We will be working through the Participant’s Guide for the book “His Needs, Her Needs” by Dr. Willard Harley and encouraging couples to participate in practical applications between Small Group meetings. We are excited to help you deepen your personal relationship with each other, and to increase the joy and romance in your marriage.  Childcare will not be provided as it’s best to have each person’s full attention for the entire evening.
