Connect Groups

Connect Groups meet every second week at various locations and different times around the city.

They are a great way for forming deeper relationships with people, and encouraging each other in our walk with God. 

We aim to care for one another and the people in our lives well, praying that we grow in faith in Jesus, and love for each other as we do so. Whether new to St Albans Baptist, or been coming for many years, we would love to have you join one of these groups.
