“People come to church for many reasons, but they stay for only one… relationship!” John Wimber
Connecting in community and building relationships with others is central to what it means to follow Jesus and we offer some different ways to connect with others depending on where you find yourself in your apprenticeship to Him.
We believe being integrated into a strong ecosystem of groups and accountable friendships is an essential and authentic way to grow as a disciples of Jesus.
We have groups of all types that meet around the county. These groups are a great way to make new friends and build relationships. Our groups run on a termly basis, although we have a number of open groups that you can join at any time follow the link to see our available groups.
Huddles are designed so that anyone anywhere can participate, with no training or facilitation. We don’t organise Huddles centrally, instead we empower you to do them yourselves! This is a simple environment of 3 to 4 people who meet regularly to invest sharing life, grow in their pursuit of Jesus and hold each other up in prayer.
Alpha is a series of hosted dinner parties, exploring questions of life, faith, meaning, and Jesus. Typically run over seven weeks, each gathering explores a different question about faith, and leads to open conversation in an honest, informal space. Alpha always includes a great from, a thought-provoking film presentation and a no-wrong-answers discussion.
The Upper Room happens roughly once a month. It’s a time when we come together as a whole church community to pray and worship together and seek God for the renewal of things in Northampton, Northamptonshire and the Nations, everyone welcome!
