Connect Groups at Harbour Church
We believe life change happens in the context of relationships. Connect Groups have a simple purpose: to bring people together. God created us to live in community with others, and it is only then that we can experience the full life He intends for us.
Harbour Church is a church of Connect Groups, not a church with Connect Groups. When we do life together our problems become smaller, as God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives. Connect Groups become a place where others know your name, care about what is happening in your life, and want to support you in your spiritual journey.
At Harbour Church, we use a free market approach to Connect Groups. This means we want people to gather together based on the things they enjoy and are important to them. Leaders form their group around their gifts or interests. From sports groups to lunch groups, mom groups to student groups, Bible study groups to creative arts groups, our groups are as varied as we are.
At he moment we have groups meeting through out the week.
