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 the leader if you’d like more information.

Exploring Prayer and Prophecy

TUESDAY 7pm, starting May 22nd

Since Jesus is ‘The Word and  His words are Spirit and Life, and because the Spirit of Prophecy is the testimony of Jesus’, we propose the formation of a new connect group based on prophecy.  Our aim is to develop in our stewardship of the grace of prophecy as the Holy Spirit administers it; to deepen our faith to receive and deliver it so we can better represent the Living Jesus to others.
