What Should I Expect?
The goal of joining a group is to grow in your walk with Jesus—with people that can support you in taking your next steps. We believe life is better when you live in community. Take a look at see what jumps out at you.

Coffee & Cake
Coffee & Cake groups are sprouting up all over Papsda, and even abroad. Once per month we meet in various homes for a hot cuppa and some cake. It’s a great way to relax, get to know people better and have great conversation. Fill out the form below if you’d like to know when and where groups are meeting and be part of the Coffee & Cake community.
Every Wednesday during school term from 9:00am-11.30am in the community hall at Papsda. Footsteps Preschool (which is next-door to Papsda) runs an epic community playgroup for 0-5 year olds and their parents/caregivers. Come along with a gold cold donation and enjoy the experience!
We believe that God has designed us to live in community—to do life together. In a big church, this kind of community happens best in smaller groups, we call these Life Groups. We have groups that suit every person and every lifestyle—ladies, men, teen, youth, fitness, mums. Life Groups are the friends you grow, laugh and serve with.

Saturday Morning Discussion Groups
Discussion groups happen at Papsda at 9.30am-10:30am every Saturday morning (concurrently with children’s environments). If you are just beginning to read the Bible or if you have been a student of the Bible for a long time, you will be sure to find a discussion that helps you grow in your walk with Jesus. When you visit us, talk to the team at Guest Central to find the right group for you.
We believe growing people change. One way we grow is through equipping ourselves with resources and taking opportunities to learn. We offer Equip courses on topics such as The Bible; Relationships (marriage, parenting); Holistic Living, as well as specific training events for a variety of ministry areas.
