Our church is made of people, and their relationship with each other and with Jesus.
Small groups are the best way to strengthen both relationships. The friendship and support found in the members of a small groups is a wonderful gift, deepening our connection with our community and building our relationship with our Saviour.
Our parish offers a number of seasonal and permanent small groups.
Please contact us for more information on how to join a small group.
Faithways groups consist of 6 to 10 people, and meet once per month for about 2 hours. The meetings are normally based on a study guide, and usually include a bible reading and discussion period. The real value of these groups lies in the personal testament of members of their own walk of faith, and how life’s challenges and triumphs are filtered through the teachings of Jesus. Wonderful relationships result!
During Lent, small groups are formed to meet each week to help to prepare for Easter. Each meeting normally follows a study guide based on the scripture readings for that week. Discussion is guided by reflections and questions provided with the study guide, but the main focus is to “reset” and prepare for the most important season of our church calendar.
Family Groups usually consist of 5 or 6 families, or couples or individuals, who regularly gather together socially. They might agree to meet 6 or 8 times per year for dinner, recreational activities or a movie night. Ideally, the groups consist of a range of ages and are a terrific way to get to know people in the parish.

Alpha is a multi-denominational program inviting people into a personal relationship with God, through Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
It consists of about 10 sessions of about 2 hours, each involving a meal/coffee, followed by a video and small group discussion.
It is a powerful way for people of faith to rekindle their enthusiasm for a relationship with Christ, as well as a perfect way for those who might be currently outside a faith community to be introduced to Christianity and explore what it means to become a person of faith.
