Groups FAQ

How to join

Scroll through the groups above and press the sign-up button on the group you want to join. A new tab will open in your browser, fill in your details on that page and press the sign-up button.

What happens next?

Once you’ve joined a group, the leader will contact you with exact times, dates, and locations. Some groups have a limit on how many people can join, so we’d recommend signing up early before they fill up.

How will the groups work?

We have a wide range of groups that meet across Kent, some at Eastgate and others locally. Once you’ve joined a group, the leader will update you regularly.

We have several groups that meet online via Zoom. We’ve found it’s a great way to connect wherever you’re based.

How many groups can I join?

As many as you like!

Can I join groups at anytime?

Connect Groups run in Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter terms. Some groups run every term, and if there’s space, you can join them at any time. If you’ve signed up to one of these groups in a previous term, you won’t need to sign-up again.

We often have new groups starting each term, with some that only run for one term. You’ll need to sign-up for these before the groups start date. They tend to be popular and can fill up quickly.
