Who can join a Connection Group? Anyone can join a Connection Group. You don’t have to attend GC to be apart of one of our Connection groups, but coming to our services is a great way to see what we’re all about.

Are all Connection Groups the same? No, we have a few groups that vary according to demographic, day or time.

Why should I join a Connection Group? Connection Groups are the best way to get connected with other people at Grace Church. In a small group, it is easier to meet people and to find a place where you can fit in.

Can I continue in my Connection Group for more than one term? If the Connection Group is running for another term, you can definitely rejoin the same group.

Can I join more than one Connection Group? Yes, but we believe you will have the best experience if you are committed to just one or two.

Is childcare provided? No, but some Connection Groups have arranged for childcare. Contact the Connection Group Leader of the group for more information.

What if I want to start a Connection Group? Great! We’re always looking for new and fresh ideas. You should complete a Connection Group Leader Application and go through our Discovery Course. Then once your Connection Group Leader Application has been approved by church leadership you can attend our next Connection Group Leader Training and start building your group. From time to time we will have a Connection Group Rally Day where you can set up a display table for people to visit after a church service. You must have at least three people to start a Connection Group, but there is no limit to how big you can grow!
