Connect Groups

Drawing closer to God and building friendships with others.

Connect Groups are a vital part of the community at Open Door Church. They are a place where a steadily growing church remains personal. A Place where you can become more like Jesus, along with others and where you not only know but also care for each other.

Whether you’re new to groups, leading for the first time, or a seasoned leader, there’s a place for you!

  • We are convinced that life change happens in the context of relationships. We all need each other and that’s why we have connect groups.

  • Every Connect Group looks different. Based on the interests of the leader and the purpose of the group – almost anything is possible. From sports groups to Bible study groups, from a toddler group to groups that pack boxes of groceries for families in need.

    However, there are 3 elements that are especially important to us:

    • Fellowship
    • Prayer
    • God’s Word
  • Three times a year, we start a new “trimester” in which our groups usually come together weekly or at least biweekly for around 12 weeks. This allows everyone to be part of a group that suits them at every stage of their life.

    However, many groups remain in existence for several trimesters, which strengthens the community among each other.

  • In order to find the right group for you, simply look through our online directory or learn more at one of our church services by visiting the Connect Center. As soon as you‘ve found one or more interesting groups, you can get in touch with the corresponding group leader in order to receive more information and then take the next step to visit the group personally.

  • You want to start a new group? The first step to becoming a Connect Group Leader is to participate in the Connect Group Leader Training. The training will show you how easy it is to start a group.
