Group Life 

Group LIfe-smallGroup Life is crucial to all we do at Open Door Church. Our Sunday celebrations are a great way to explore who we are, but we also encourage everyone to connect with a smaller group and invest in developing relationships there. All our groups are focussed on helping people belong to Jesus, belong together and belong for a purpose.

It has been said that, “Loneliness is one of the greatest public health challenges of our time” (Theresa May – former UK Prime Minister) and we hope our groups offer everyone an opportunity to find a place to belong and break free from loneliness.

We run seasonal small groups that you can sign up to twice a year – in September and February – although whenever you arrive there will be groups available for you to get connected with quickly.
