As a church, we resource our Connect Groups three times a year, following the Sunday morning teaching series. These specific moments throughout the year allow us as a church family across our sites to move together in our formation and discover what God is saying to us collectively as a body. Outside of this, connect hosts have space to utilise their gatherings to meet specific needs within their group, draw out specific topics or allow people to share their stories. Rachel unpacks how resources can be used to make space for formational nights together. Click Here
