We believe that membership of a Connect Group is an essential part of the life of the church. It is also the primary means of caring for and supporting one another and a great way to help us grow in our faith.
The mission statement of Oaktree Anglican is:
To glorify God,
proclaiming and following Jesus Christ,
in the power of the Spirit
Joining a Connect Group provides a regular opportunity to gather together with other Christians, where deep and lasting friendships may be fostered through prayer, bible study, outreach, having fun together, worship and mutual care of each other. In this way members of a Connect Group glorify God, proclaim and follow Jesus Christ, in the power of the Spirit, together.
As Oaktree continues to grow, Connect Groups are a foundational place to know and be known by others, to practise using or learning about your God given talents, gifts and skills, while being part of something much bigger which God is doing through the entire Church.
Our Connect Groups meet during the week at our churches as well as in a number of locations across the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. A variety of groups enable people at different ages and life stages from young adults through to those young at heart to gather together in a group of like-minded people.
If you are interested in joining a group or would like to find out more, please email the Connect Group Coordinator Robert Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office during office hours on 03 9532 8129.
