We encourage our church members to participate in a Growth Group during the week to expand on their knowledge and understanding of the bible as well as supporting individuals in their spiritual growth and development. We currently have three Growth Groups per week, consisting of 10-15 people, running on a Monday and Thursday evening as well as on a Friday afternoon. Meeting in different homes or in the church building, these small groups also offer the opportunity to develop richer relationships with the members in the group, providing a nurturing and confidential setting to ask questions, share personal prayer points and learn more about each other. The evening groups meet at 7:30pm and runs until 9pm and the afternoon group starts at 1pm until 2:30pm.
Throughout the year, a group of ladies choose a book to read and on completion get together on a Saturday afternoon at 2pm and review and discuss it.

Other titles they have read include Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi and Hiding in the Light by Rifqa Bary. If you would like more information or would like to join the group contact the church office on 02 9773 7073.
