Church By the Bay seeks to have smaller places where people can connect and be supported and cared for. Where they can know each other, and be known.
Small Groups are a great way to get connected into church life, build friendships, learn from others’ journeys of faith, develop leadership skills and impact lives. Groups meet at different times of the week in Portarlington, Drysdale and Clifton Springs. They cater for adults and youth.
Prayer Triplets work in a similar way to a Small Group, with an emphasis on personal accountability and growth. Triplets (or doublets, but never more that quadlets) allow more intimacy than a small group setting, and have been effective in many people’s lives.
We currently have around 10 small groups running in our church. Are you part of one? If not, here is your invitation to join. We would love to connect you with others in your area, who love to delve deeper into the scripture and life together. Our groups run at various times, locations. If you want to join a group feel free to contact any of the leaders below or contact Julie Rock on 0420 930 818 for more information.
Join us in reading the bible in a year, using The Bible Projects resources. You can find their reading plan here. All their videos can be accessed on their website here. You can also download an app from the play store for android, or iTunes for apple devices. We commenced on Sunday the 23rd of June 2019, but it’s not too late to join us as we read through the bible in a year.
