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 JULY 29 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.
