WHAT IS A SMALL GROUP?
Small groups are Central’s groups of 12-15 people that meet in convenient locations across the Toronto core in order to experience God, learn more about the bible, grow in their faith, and meet some great new friends. Trust me: they are a lot of fun!
WHEN WILL THESE SMALL GROUPS MEET?
Small Groups meet once a week, and each meeting is just 60 to 90 minutes long. Groups begin the last week of January and ends the last week of April so your group will meet twelve-thirteen times over the semester. It’s a short-term commitment - but the positive impact on your life will be long-term!
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THIS GROUP IS OVER?
When the semester is over we will have some socials for the entire congregation during the month of May. We will then start up new groups again in June. You can re-join your previous leader’s group, or pick a new group based on topic. Either way you will have opportunity to continue to learn and grow in your faith!
What happens when I sign up for a small group?
When you sign up, the leader of your new Small Group will contact you with the address of the Group’s meeting place, the date and time you’ll be starting on, and all the other information you’ll need to have a great experience!

OUR SMALL GROUPS ARE HERE TO PERSONALLY EQUIP, ENCOURAGE, AND EMPOWER YOU IN YOUR EVERYDAY WALK WITH CHRIST. THEY WILL GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET CONNECTED IN A FAITH-BASED COMMUNITY THAT CONSISTENTLY POINTS EACH OTHER TO JESUS IN A PURSUIT TO LOOK LIKE HIM AND LIVE LIFE AS REAL CHRISTIANS.
