O2 Connect Groups

Connect groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why these small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Sign up Sunday happens on SUNDAY FEBRUARY 17 after the 10am service, with a whole heap of stands where you can meet the Connect Group leaders and register your interest. Alternatively, you can click on the individual group links below to register your interest.


Mixed Netball

Patrice Belcher

Keen to join a social netball team? Teams are played indoors with 6 per side and a mixture of males and females age 16 and up. Whether you have played netball before or would like to learn, it’s a great way to get in some exercise at the beginning of the week.

Please note we already have enough for one team, but would love to enter a second team if there is enough interest.

It's a hard thing to do. But if you want to build healthy relationships with God and others, learning to keep your love on is non-negotiable. Danny Silk's practical examples and poignant stories will leave you with the power to draw healthy boundaries, communicate in love, and ultimately protect your connections so you can.

Bring note pad and pen if you would like to take notes. We will be watching a DVD and having a short discussion afterwards about what has been watched.

On Saturday 23rd March 9am - 1pm, O2 will be doing it's first Community Serve Day. This is where the church will come together and go out to the community and help those in need, giving people a hand up, not a hand out.

We will do this by identifying some needs in the community and then helping them ie. cleaning, cutting lawns, painting and fixing up areas that need attention.

This group will meet together weekly to discuss & plan for this event, and then run the day on Saturday 23rd March.

Location: Wed 7:30 - 8:30pm. The Lakes for planning meetings

Freedom course

Sam & Michelle Bayly & Rae Stokes

A part of our vision at O2 is to help people “Find Freedom” in every area of their lives. 

This 11 week course is designed to equip you to live the victorious and abundant life Christ came to give you in every area of your life.

This course has been hugely popular in churches all over the world, and participants come away really changed by the end of it. 

This group will be the pilot group for this course, that we one day hope to roll out to everyone who calls O2 Church home. 

At the end of the course there is a one day Freedom Conference which runs over a Saturday and focuses on solidifying what you have learned in Freedom by helping you take next steps to overcome your past and lay a foundation for walking in daily freedom. This will be on Sat 25th May. 

Tuesday 7-8:30pm

Location: Sam & Michelle’s house

Cost: There is a $15 charge for the Freedom course workbook
