Connect Group resource page

 This page details some helpful ideas for running a Connect Group and also helpful information if you know of anyone struggling with certain things in your group and places you can signpost people to. 

Please let us know if you know of any resources and we will get it added to this page! 

 

resource materials for Connect Group Leaders


Over the coming months we are going to build a catalogue of ideas and resources for Connect Group leaders to use.  On the mezzanine floor we also have a bookshelf of resources which you are welcome to borrow and use with your group.  Please sign out in the little black book!


everyday supernatural

Why not read through a book with your group such as 'Everyday Supernatural'.  Get everyone to read a chapter each week, then share what you've learnt from the chapter and how you can put some of it into practice.  Share stories of what God has done...share the good stories as well as the stories of when it's gone wrong.  This is a great way to grow together.
