Connect Groups are at the heart of the Waypoint Church family. They are smaller gatherings of people meeting throughout North Northumbria and the Scottish Borders to build friendships, grow spiritually and transform local communities.

Connect Groups are our midweek expression of church. Connect Groups have an inward, upward and outward focus, they are:

• where we connect with each other more deeply, where we can find friendship, support and pastoral care. Where we can grow as a community and discover who we are called to be.

 places to focus on God, worship Him, pray and learn more about Him from the Bible. Safe places where we can explore, be encouraged in and develop our gifts.

 where we look outwards, beyond ourselves and towards the community and the world. They’re a wonderful opportunity to serve others, beyond the walls of the church, to reach out to the world with the transforming love of Jesus.

Most of our Connect Groups run termly and may have different focuses which reflect the diversity of the Waypoint Church family and the area we live in.
