Our vision is for everyone to be connected to a Small Group to help them grow.
While Sunday worship is important for developing our faith and deepening our relationship with each other, we encourage all our members to continue growing in their relationship with Jesus and with each other on the other six days of the week. Our vision is for every member of our church to be connected to at least one of our groups, outside of Sunday worship.
To get in touch with the Co-ordinators of these groups for more information or meeting details, contact the Church Office.
Bible Studies and Connect Groups
We have a number of Bible studies and Connect Groups that meet throughout the week. Groups meet on the church site and in the homes of church members. Some of our groups are specifically targeted at a particular demographic or special interest group. You’re sure to find a group that will suit you and your needs:
Sunday 8:10am-9:25am (fortnightly in Church foyer) Anyone welcome
Monday 6pm-7:30pm (weekly at Dale’s residence) Young Adults & Young Families

From time to time we run short courses on faith, the Bible and topics of interest. Short courses are a way of deepening our faith and expanding our understanding. Look out for our next session of Alpha.
A large group of men of all ages meet on the third Saturday of each month for breakfast. As well as delicious food, the meeting also includes a presentation from a speaker on a relevant aspect relating to life and faith.
Unlike many church Guild groups, the focus of our Guild is on friendship, fellowship and fun rather than fundraising. The Guild is open for both men and women and gathers monthly on a Monday for lunch and a meeting. There are also a number of activities throughout the year.
Monday Craft Group
A group of crafty ladies meet every Monday in our church foyer to exercise their gifts and talents as well as share in a delicious morning tea.
Mature Single Girls
Those women who find themselves single in the mature years of their life have formed a group that meets monthly for dinner. The members also support and care for each other.
We currently run 2 morning playgroups – one on Thursday and one on Friday as part of our Family Support ministry. These are amazing times of connection for parents, careers and children. Places in these groups are in high demand.
Our church has a great relationship with All Saints Anglican School. As part of the relationship, a number of senior members of our church have become Pen Pals for the year 5 and 6 students. This is an incredibly rewarding experience for both the junior and senior Pen Pals.
Two members of our church run language groups on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings teaching French, German, Italian and Spanish. All people, from inside and outside the church, are made very welcome.
Friendship is offered with refreshments between classes on Saturdays from 9.00 to 9.30am and this is a good time to visit and enrol.
Many friends are made in the classes!
A number of our members play golf on a semi-regular basis. In 2016, we initiated the Mortgage Choice Masters competition, which is a fun day on the course and includes trophies and bragging rights. Golfers of any age, stage and ability are welcome.
Once a month a number of our active members join a local Park Run. You can walk, jog or run according to your own ability or energy levels on the day. It’s a great way to connect with the wider community and get to know one another better while keeping fit.
