info about groups at Faith

why small groups?

God doesn't want us to “do life” alone - it's so much better together! Small groups study the Bible and provide opportunities to connect and build relationships with others.


Together we explore the ups and downs of life and faith.

answers to your questions

Which groups are available?

Scroll down to "Which group should I choose?" for a list that describes when and where the current small groups meet, who they're for, what they're studying, and more.


What do small groups look like?

Small groups are designed for all age groups and walks of life. Some groups meet in the church or in homes; some meet online. All are in "come-as-you are" casual settings.


Most groups meet for around 90 minutes each week. Each group spends time in study, friendship, prayer and conversation.


The material used is prepared by each group leader and is typically based on a book and/or video series.


Is a small group right for me?

Yes! We encourage everyone to get connected in this way. Small groups are vital to our vision to help you become more like Jesus (who was part of a small group too).


We think regularly meeting with a small group of other people is a great way to help you grow in your relationships with God, other people learning to be like Jesus, and people in the world around you.


You don't need previous small group experience, knowledge of the Bible or anything special. Just bring you.
