Common Questions

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE GATHER?
A Connect Group at Sonlife Church looks like friends coming together and enjoying doing life with each other! It is a small gathering of people engaging in life giving conversations around the Word of God. To build a genuine closeness with people in the group and a closeness with Jesus Christ.

HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?
Our Connect Groups will meet weekly for 8 weeks during the school term, with a 4 week break in between the terms. Think it this way, there are 10 weeks in the school term – we commence our gatherings during week 2 and take our break at the end of week 9. Connect Groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life, so even if you can’t attend every meeting there is still great value in joining a group!

WHERE DO WE MEET?
Our Connect Groups will meet all throughout the city of Perth. You will find a group meeting in homes, the church building, cafes and even parks. The group would meet for approximately 1.5 hours.

ARE THE GROUPS DIFFERENT?
We have many different types of groups at Sonlife Church. We have groups for couples, women’s only, over 50s, mothers with young children, new Christians, mixed adults and many more. We believe there is a group for everyone!

HOW LONG DOES A CONNECT GROUP STAY TOGETHER?
Our Connect Groups meet for 12 months. This way, new people can join groups easily and regularly each year. It also allows you to try other groups each year, creating an even larger friendship circle within our church.

IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE SIZE OF THE GROUP?
We want to keep the group small and intimate and believe the ideal size for each group is no more than 12 people.

CAN I JOIN A GROUP DURING THE YEAR?
Yes, you can! You can join a Connect Group anytime in the year, simply go to our church website and find a group that suits you! Please visit www.sonlife.org.au/connect-groups.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE FIRST GROUP I TRY?
That is not a problem at all. The best time to exit a group and enter into a new group is during the 4-week break. Simply go to the website and enquire about a new group. Don’t give up and keep believing there is a group that is right for you!
