Growth Groups are small groups of Grace Presbyterian people and their friends who join together each week during school terms to have friendship and prayer and Bible Study together. We have several groups around Christchurch and you are welcome to join any you are interested in. Some groups start with a shared meal, others start later and omit the meal. There is a phone number to contact for more information about each group.

The first Sunday of each month, we plan to have a shared lunch together after morning worship. The start time for lunch will be around 1pm, at Christchurch boy’s High School. Please bring food to share around so all can enjoy lunch together.
This will be a good opportunity to get to know other people at GPC church and to encourage each other. If the weather is suitable, people can bring sports equipment (eg soccer balls, cricket gear) and we can play games at the school.
