Connect Groups

Connect Groups are a key value to the life of Mahurangi Vineyard Church. We weren’t made to be alone, we were made to share and be in relationship.

Connect Groups in Mahurangi Vineyard are a place to do life together with people you know and maybe some new friends.  Together we learn and grow as we delve in to what it is to Love God, Love People and Love Life. Don’t miss out on the rich experience of doing this as part of a Connect Group.

We have a range of Connect Groups, some carry on and others are only for the duration of the school term and then new ones start.

Below is a list of the current connect groups, please sign up below or text/email the leader if you’d like more information.

This connect group is open to Men, Women and Teenagers. It is focused on building relationships.

It’s all about:
• Fun
• Friendship
• Family

The connect group will build up a $1000 lemon of a car into a race car. Race prepping it, painting it, testing it ......there is lots to do. Next year we will race the car in the 24 hour LeMons race which is a motor racing event held at Hampton Downs racing circuit just south of Auckland. The events main aim is charitable - raising money for Cancer research.

We will need a team of 5 drivers and we are hoping for a large support crew. You don’t need any previous motor racing experience or even car experience. We are looking for a group of people that are willing to have fun together and work together as a team. We need willing helpers to do a large range of tasks

• Design and visual art - develop a theme - creatives
• Administration - keeping records and communication, organising stuff
• Pitt crew - keep the car running, all in good time
• Support team - everything else
