Connect Groups


City Life has many different Connect groups that meet in homes across the city. As well as being a place of belonging and care, Connect groups provide serving opportunities where everyone's gift and contribution can be shared. They are the main way of connecting with our communities and sharing God's love. Connect groups use teaching materials from Sunday Celebrations to grow in God and share the vision of City Life.

We are a mixed age group who meet weekly in Swaythling on Tuesday evenings.

We aim to eat together once a month and meet with the House Fires cluster for social gatherings once a term.
