CONNECT GROUPS

New Life Connect Groups are primarily about making connections with peopleoutside of church life, many of whom may not be Christians. They are groups mainly based around an activity or hobby with the purpose of creating space and opportunities for those in New Life Church to meet people in our wider community. Why not sign up to a Connect Group and invite your neighbour,

friend, family member, or work colleague? Please note that many of these Connect Groups do not follow the termly pattern. Get in touch with the group leader for more information.
