If you are new to Community Groups, here are the answers to some commonly asked questions.
WHAT ARE COMMUNITY GROUPS?
To put it simply, they are small groups of people (usually between 8 and 15 people) who gather around a common interest or activity.
WHY DO THEY EXIST?
They exist for many reasons, such as meeting new friends, learning new skills, and making a difference to the community.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone can join a group. You don’t have to have any affiliation with a church or know others in a particular group. If it interests you, it’s for you!
WHEN DO GROUPS RUN?
There are two group semesters per year. For semester 1 of 2023, this takes place between July and December. Most groups run weekly and will be meeting every week during these dates (with a 2-week break over the school holidays). Other groups run fortnightly or monthly. See group descriptions for details.
WHERE DO GROUPS MEET?
The groups meet in a variety of locations throughout the Central Coast. Some meet in outdoor areas, some in rented halls, and others in the homes of those who lead them.
