Harvest Christian Church


At Harvest we really believe in the importance of connect groups. People tend to stay committed and connected into church life primarily through relationship, and we believe that authentic and lasting relationships are found and made in small group gatherings. It is within small groups that proper discipling can be practiced, Holy Spirit inspired gifts can be exercised, regular encouragement can be experienced, and outreach and evangelism can be effected.

And it is within the connect group environment of spiritual families where spiritual fathers and mothers raise spiritual sons and daughters, where God is worshipped in unity through love, prayer and lifestyle, and where the practical application and expression of God’s word is fostered! At Harvest connect groups meet weekly in different peoples houses around the city and generally consist of 10 -15 people. Each group is run by an appointed trusted Harvest leader who facilitates the meeting. Connect group consists of fun times of fellowship, biblical discussion, worship, prayer and ministry; and is essentially a gathering of like-minded friends and family to focus in on the things of God, and lean in to what He wants to do in and through our lives as we journey life together.
