We believe that you can’t do life alone. At Bay City, small groups are how a crowd becomes a community and how we grow in relationship with God and those around us. Every week, hundreds of people across Hawkes Bay meet in small groups to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live.
What Can I Expect?
Connect groups are all about people taking next steps together. Some of our groups meet every week, some every other week. At each meeting, you will have a leader that leads the discussion and offers up questions for the group to answer. The goal for all of your group meetings is to identify your next step and encourage each other in taking next steps.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is childcare provided?
Every group is different. Some groups look to include children in part or all of the meeting while other groups prefer to not have children at their meetings. Some groups rotate the care of the children between group members while others hire a sitter.
When and where do groups meet?
Groups meet in homes, businesses, coffee shops around Hawkes Bay, and right here at Bay City. Every group chooses a different time to meet, so if a certain day of the week works better for you make sure to include that information when you sign up.
How long do groups last?
Every group is different, most groups go through studies every 6-8 weeks. While most groups are ongoing, you can switch to a new group at any time.
