Connect Groups are at the very heart of life at St. Mary's; they're a brilliant way to make friends as we connect with God and with one another. They are places where you can grow in your Christian faith and all have in common the following C's:
Connect with other Christians
Connect Group is the main place for making friends with other Christians, experiencing Christian fellowship and building community. It's in a group that you can get to know others well, laugh and cry together. They are the best place to offer and receive pastoral care and support.
Connect more deeply with God
Connect Groups are a great place to grow in your faith by studying the Bible together (often exploring Sunday's message further), learning to pray with others and through worship. Your group is an ideal place to see personal spiritual growth and to be accountable to one another.
Connect with those who do not yet know God
A Connect Group offers an ideal opportunity to reach out to those who do not yet know God. This can be done in all manner of ways: hosting dinner parties, pursuing shared interests, going out for the night! In your group you can pray for your friends and support each other in mission and evangelism.
