Connecting. Equipping. Transforming
Arts & Culture
Our Heavenly Father gifted us with diverse cultures and talents (see Exodus 31). If you are a man or woman who loves attending arts and culture events, this is the small group for you. Group activities are planned around arts and culture activities and events taking place in our region, for example, fairs, plays, poetry and spoken word events and dance performances. Whether you are an artist or an appreciator of arts and cultural experiences, you can enjoy times of fellowship with others while exploring the rich array of arts and the diversity of cultures in our region.
Books & Fellowship
If you enjoy reading personal-growth books and would love to share your reflections in a book-club style gathering, this is the small group for you. Books & Fellowship participants vote on the books they read as a group and have times of meaning fellowship in a home-meeting setting, breaking bread and socializing beyond the topics they confront in the readings.
