But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 Peter 2:9,10 (CSB)

Connect groups are a great way to engage with others and do life together.

Welcome to The Grainery. We are a diverse group of people from many walks of life with one thing in common – we are followers of Jesus Christ. Whatever stage of that journey you’re on, whether you’re just beginning, or you’ve been loving Him for years, you are most welcome to join us.

It can be a challenge to find friendships and community in a multiple-service church and being part of a smaller gathering is really helpful for all of us. One of the best ways to find a place of belonging is to become part of a smaller group within the larger body of the Church. We call them Connect Groups and the name says it all. Our aim is to provide a place for you to not only get to know people, but also find a sense of family and friendship that will sustain and encourage you in your relationship with God.

Since its inception in 1997, The Grainery has prioritised meeting together in smaller groups as a means of contributing and receiving the uniqueness of relationships that change our lives for the better. The groups meet at different times and places, consisting of people in different life stages. What they have in common is that people care about each other, loving and laughing as well as praying and helping each other when there’s a need.

If you’re looking for community, fill in the form below and let us know your needs and preferences in terms of a Connect Group. We will do our best to work it out so that you find your way to the group that suits you best.
