small groups


life is better in community.


We have been created for community and while we offer different sizes of groups for different purposes and social settings, small groups of 6-12 people is our main vehicle for growth.

Whether we meet as men, women, or mixed, whether we meet age specific or inter-generational, whether we meet late at night or before the kids wake up, we want everyone at Ellerslie to be doing life together.

While there are many philosophies surrounding small groups, we believe the main purpose of small groups is to develop close friends by supporting one another and challenging each other in our spiritual journey.

In each of our groups it is our hope that you will develop meaningful relationships, spend time with God through scriptures and prayer, and engage your neighbours with the love of Jesus.



Our groups meet 2-4 times each month to discuss topics that affect us all… and make sure there’s food to keep us full.
