Every Wednesday after Connects Community Lunch there is an informal and friendly bible study open to all who wish to explore the Christian faith.

Coffee, cakes and a good chat with friends on a similar journey. 


We have all experienced some kind of loss and grief. The sessions will explore this along with hope for the future

Mondays 7:30pm - 8:30pm at Connect Centre

Refreshments included.


Held at Connect Centre this is a group exploring the DNA of Connect Centre. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been involved at Connect for years or not this is an opportunity to explore who we are and why we’re so enthusiastic about why we do what we.

Wednesdays facilitated by Stephen and Jim.

We’ll be centring on our vision and values such as:

  • The Connect vision & mission

  • Our understanding of “the kingdom of God”

  • Our understanding of church

  • Building community not “church”

  • Welcome and Hospitality

  • Injustice and our response

  • Who are we and what happens at Connect
