A Connect Group is a bunch of people doing life together. They exist to reach either a particular neighbourhood or network of relationships with the love of Christ, to show them what it means to live a life transformed. We like to call it “tri life“.
With a core value of “life together”, Connect Groups are about doing stuff with your friends and being part of their journey to knowing God; an opportunity to take your life and relate Jesus to others. The more we allow what God has placed in us to come to the forefront of our lives, the more naturally connected we will be with the culture and people around us. These flexible and local expressions of church exist to bring heaven to the particular slice of earth God has given you to bless.
The groups are networked within TLC and many people connect through multiple groups. The frequency and timetable of each group varies, depending entirely on those in the group and how their life fits with their Connect Group. The groups exist for how ever long the Connect Group stays up and running; sometimes a few weeks, sometimes years.
