Join A Group

Why join a group?

Humans are made for community. We need it to flourish. NewHope is passionate about creating hundreds of Communities of Hope where people can be known and know others as we seek to become more like Jesus. These groups form the basis of community and connection which we all need. You don’t have to be alone, you are loved and accepted. On this page you will find a link to connect with a group at NewHope and resources for those who are able to Host a group

What are groups at NewHope?

When do Groups meet and How?

Groups at NewHope tend to meet on a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on the Group. We have Groups meeting on almost every night of the week!

What should I expect to happen in a Group?
Groups will have different patterns but all will be intentional about making you feel welcome and allowing you to get to know others in the Group. Time will be spent discussing faith in Jesus through reading the bible, utilising discussion resources and sharing thoughts or questions from each other in the Group. We will always spend time offering to pray for each other.
