SMALL GROUPS AT GOLD COAST NORTH

ABOUT SMALL GROUPS


Small Groups are where our big Parish gets small, where you can get to know others and be known, grow in faith, where you can be cared for and care for others. Small Groups are the cornerstone to community life at Gold Coast North Anglican.

 

Traditionally Small Groups have also been known as Bible Studies, but we have a broader vision for Small Groups at Gold Coast North Anglican. We see a space for a variety of groups pursuing a variety of activities, all with the same goal to help people find community, care and be encouraged in faith.



HOW TO JOIN A SMALL GROUP


To join a Small Group, just look through the list and give the group leader a call to find out more information and then attend the group. You are encouraged to attend a few groups to find one that fits for you.



WHAT IF THE GROUP JUST ISN'T MY FIT?


No worries. We all get that some groups will be better shaped for who we are and others not so much. There is no pressure to keep attending a group and you are more than welcome to check out different groups to find the right fit.



WHAT IF I WANT TO START A GROUP?


Awesome! Please think about what kind of group you would like to start and contact Rev. John via email revjohndougherty@gmail.com to set up a time to discuss.


Please note there is an application and approval process.




Take a look below at the variety of groups we have at Gold Coast North Anglican.
