The Connect Week
There is plenty to dip into over the course of the week at Connect. You are welcome to come along to as much or as little as you like!
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we are operating a little differently from normal, but still meeting together for weekly Bible study, opportunities to socialise and have fun within the guidelines, and we look forward to re-starting our weekly evening home groups soon.
Under normal conditions, we look forward to Wednesday mornings together at college for Bible study, prayer, tea, coffee, and cakes, whilst children are cared for in a creche staffed by a rota of student tutor groups, and on Friday mornings joining the college community for communion, with tea/coffee afterwards, and then a toddler playgroup.
We encourage all Connect members to find themselves a couple of people with whom they can form a prayer triplet/quad. We believe that they can be a valuable place for sharing your life more deeply with a couple other members of the Connect community. They provide a safe space to share and pray with each other on a regular basis. We hope that triplets begin to form in the first couple of months of college, although the exec is more than happy to support you in finding a group.
