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.
