List of Connect Groups

At theBarn we place a high value on smaller groups in which people can meet regularly during the week for encouragement, accountability, pastoral support and discipleship. We call these Connect Groups and this list gives the details of all existing groups which are open to new members.

There is a Gateway Group which is open to anyone wishing to join a Connect Group for the first time.  This group meets each Wednesday evening at theBarn.
