What Are Connection Groups?

Connection opportunities provide a way to get to know our Central church family in an informal setting. If you’re new to the Brantford area, new to church in general, or just curious about what goes on at Central, come get to know us in one of these relaxed get-togethers. Some of the more regular opportunities are listed below, but keep an eye on our events calendar to join us for things like church picnics, Christmas parties, and kids’ events.


Central Knitting Club

Where: The Café & Chapel (at Central Baptist)
Time: 10:00 – 12:00 PM

Each Wednesday, 10:00 am to noon, we meet in the Chapel / Cafe to knit. A coffee break to study God’s Word is included. Our purpose is found in Colossians 2:2 “…that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both the Father and of Christ.” And, our theme verse is 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” Some of our work is donated to the Church for distribution to local outreach groups. Sighted volunteers assist as required. Donations of yarn and other knitting supplies are greatly appreciated which may be dropped off year round at the church office.
