Community Groups

At SouthRidge we believe that we can only find authentic community when we do life together in small groups of people. Our Community Groups are an example of a place where you will be encouraged in your spiritual journey and cared for when life happens. We encourage you to join a group in your community so you can connect and grow together.
If you want to learn more about any of these groups or about how you can become connected contact us

What is a community group at SouthRidge?
A Community Group is a bunch of people getting together in each other’s homes. Group sizes vary, but we like them smaller rather than larger. Some community groups move around while other groups meet at the same location. Some groups meet weekly while other groups meet every other week. As you can tell, our community groups are a fruit salad of variety.

Why is being in a Community Group so important?
Even though every group looks a little different, they are all focused on connecting people. This is done through relationship building, caring for one another’s needs, and seeing spiritual change occur in each other’s lives.

What is the required commitment?
Many groups meet either once a week, every 2 weeks, or twice a month formally. Because we encourage contribution to a group, we encourage you to attend as many as you can to build deeper friendships. We hope that friendships will develop a desire to meet outside of formal gatherings. That being said, we do not require people to attend any amount of times.

Which group should I join, and how do I join?
We would encourage you to attend a group closest to your neighbourhood. However, we do allow for people to attend a different one if they feel they fit well with another group of people. You can connect with one of the leaders, a participant in a group, or ask Wes to help you find an appropriate group. You can also browse through our open groups above.

Can my kids go?
Possibly. Each group decides on their own if there is childcare. Often an older child will look after the younger ones while the adults have some time to pray and study. Some groups also pitch in a couple dollars each to pay for childcare.

Does it cost money?
