During renovations, all Sunday School classes will meet in the fellowship hall.
Small groups are communities of people who gather regularly for prayer, study and friendship. They are key to growing spiritually and connecting into the life of the church. Meeting regularly in community is a way we live out our commitments to serve God in community, pray for one another, support one another, and critically think about questions of faith. Some small groups meet for short intervals (4-5 weeks) and some meet more regularly (see below on special interest small groups). Small groups are an excellent way to meet people and get more involved in church life. No groups are closed and newcomers are always welcome.
