Connect

What Do We Do?

It can be easy to get lost in a large group of people without really getting to know anyone. Our Connect Groups provide a space for you to build close friendships in church.

Our Connect Groups are the primary place where strong relationships are built. They are small groups which meet during the week. Most of the Connect Groups meet on Wednesday evenings, but there is one that meets on a Thursday as well. Our Connect Groups are spread out around the South Birmingham area, covering Selly Oak, Kings Heath, Bournville and Northfield currently. The Connect Groups meet to share an evening meal, usually between 6pm and 8pm so that children are able to attend. Connect Groups are designed to be “families on mission” because we believe that our mission to disciple our city is best worked out in mid-sized family units where everyone is included.

How Do I Find Out More?

Our Connect Groups are coordinated by Grace Smith. You can email Grace directly connectgroups@encounterchurch.uk for any questions you have.

Our new Connections Team is now launched - if you want to chat to someone about what is going on, register for an event, know where your nearest connect group is, or how to get involved (or just anything church!), speak to the friendly faces with the yellow lanyards. You can find them the back of the church or in amongst the congregation; whatever the itch on your brain, let's talk!
