Get Connected

Life. Growth. Discipleship.

At Awaken Church, we do life together. God did not design us to do life alone. We truly are better connected, and at Awaken we bring this to life through the combination of Sunday/Wednesday gatherings and Connect Groups.

Our large Sunday and Wednesday gatherings across all of our campuses provide you with a faith injection so you can accelerate towards the God-purpose on your life individually and as a member of our collective church family.

We also want you to find a close group of friends you can journey through life with. That’s exactly why your Connect Group exists!

Connect Groups happen each week across all our cities. As you get plugged in to one of our Connect Groups you’ll begin to walk into the fresh, real, and powerful life that God has called you to!

Host Your Own Connect Group

Are you interested in starting your own Connect Group? Our Groups exist to make sure everyone in our church has a family to have fun, grow in their faith, and do life with. Our Connect Group Hosts make it happen.

We are looking for leaders who will commit to creating a great atmosphere for people to build friendships and grow their relationships with Jesus. As a Host you will receive unique access to resources, events, and training from church leadership and get to take an active role in forwarding God’s kingdom.

I absolutely love the transformation that happens in connect groups. It’s a time where we can get real and raw about all the things in our lives. I remember my very first time I attended a connect group I didn’t know anyone at the church but I immediately felt so comfortable with the women in the group. Looking back now hosting an awaken party I see the women like I see myself when I first walked in. I felt so vulnerable the first day but when I came back I immediately felt like it was everything I was missing in my life. God knew I needed this group of women during that time in my life. Every time I walk into our awaken party I thank God for a church that cares so much about connection and doesn’t let you isolate. Being around the right people helps transform your life and the life of others, that’s just the way God created us.

Joining a connect group was the best decision for our family. Each week encouraging us with God stories, amazing food and personal discipleship. Connect group made a powerful transformation in our lives. We started to feel at home in church for the first time. Without our connect group we would be attending a beautiful church, but doing life alone. Doing life connected in church is essential, especially today when the world is trying to isolate us. We are so blessed and grateful for our connect group.

I have been coming to Awaken for 5 years, and I love every Sunday service and connecting to God. But connect has been the heart of my connection with others. My first connect was all about my healing. I was almost like a crying session, but they all loved me and embraced me. Then I attended a men connect, this connect help me to find my identity in God, then I went to a family connect where I grew and learned the value of a Godly family. And now, I have the honor of leading a connect group. Now it has been the season where I get to pour out to others what was poured out to me. Connect has been the place where I have met my best friends and the people I do life with.

Connect Group has been an absolute lifeline for us. On moving our family here from the UK we knew no-one but knew in the power of the church & of small groups so hunted out a Connect group fast! We were blessed to find the Smiths Connect & from the 1st day we walked into a strangers house we were welcomed, loved on, fed with amazing food (!) & strengthened in the things of God. Strangers fast become friends & now family! We now host our own Connect & love being able to give back & add people to our family each time we meet.

Although we were saved, accepted Jesus, Baptized at Church, most of our growth has come from connect group. We have the best leaders anyone could ask for, they have helped us grow spiritually, as parents, as people in general. We have found the family we did not have.
