Connection Groups

To get connected with our friendly family at GEBC, come and join one of our Connection Groups. These groups are a great place to be welcomed, and get support and encouragement.   If you want to find out more, please contact the Church office 818 0770.


Coffee Group
We welcome parents, grandparents, and caregivers (and anyone else who loves children!) to join us every Thursday from 10am – 12pm for our Coffee group.  It’s a great place to meet others and enjoy tea, coffee, and yummy baking while pre-school aged children get a chance to play and participate in various craft activities.

Currently, due to Building Upgrades, we are unable to meet onsite at Church  –  we will still be running but will be meeting offsite.  Please check the Facebook page for regular updates or contact Ivana (P 021 538 368).
