Why Connect Groups?
From its earliest days, the church has met together, gathering in both larger settings as well as in smaller groups (Acts 2: 42-47). Both settings are important and complement each other. Connect Groups are at the heart of the WPBC family encouraging a deeper sense of belonging and the primary place where discipleship takes place. They are gatherings of people to build friendships and grow spiritually.
What is a Connect Group?
It’s a group of people who normally meet 2-3 times a month, usually in someone’s home, for community, Bible study (usually linked to the Sunday teaching), prayer and worship. Each group has leaders who take responsibility for supporting the group.
It provides a place to develop a deeper relationship with God, but also deep and caring friendships. It is an excellent way for people in the church to get to know a larger group of friends.

I find the fellowship and warmth from members of the group comforting, particularly when members are going through difficult times. The power of prayer is as valuable as the teaching.
I shared with my group how God is working in my family: in areas of health, work, and home, and now answered prayer in school choice for my granddaughter. Within the groups you can share great and difficult times – not always possible after a Sunday Service.
It is worth it to make that time, even when you feel busy. I feel refreshed after attending the group and get a different view on things that I was struggling with at the time.
