Connecting with God and one another
Connect Groups are a brilliant way to build community as we connect with God and one another. There are a wide range of groups that meet to explore what it means to follow Jesus and to build family through Bible studies, worship, sharing meals or gathering around shared interests. Connect Groups run at various times and locations in and around Watford with the hope that there is a group to suit each one of us.
Scroll down to see the wide range of groups available to join. You can also view and sign up to all groups through ChurchSuite. If you are part of the Soul Survivor Watford church family but don't yet have ChurchSuite, please click on the 'Sign Up to ChurchSuite' button below.

Why is there a sign up button for some and not for others?
If a group has spaces then the sign up button will allow you to join. If there isn't a button, this means that the group is full.
I am not a member of Soul Survivor Watford. Is it okay if I join a connect group?
Most of our Connect groups are aimed at building community within Soul Survivor Watford. By joining a Connect group you will be joining the community here at the church. Some groups, such as the football group are open to bring along your friends - these groups will mention this in the description.
What happens when a group is full?
When a group is full the 'sign up for this group' button will not be available on this web page, we would encourage you to look for another that you feel you could make your home in.
The group I am in isn't for me, can I join another?
Yes, there is no pressure to remain in a group you are already part of. You are free to sign up to any group you would like, as long as you fit the age and gender brackets.
Can I attend more than One Group?
Yes, you can sign up to as many groups as you would like, but please be aware of others who may want to join - especially if there are not many remaining spaces in that group.
