Communities are the place to ‘feel like you belong’ at SJC. These communities are where you’re known and grown as a follower of Jesus, meeting regularly to do life, church and pray together. Each community serves a local area or a group of people, whilst studying the Bible in discipleship groups and meeting socially to build friendships. Take a look at some of our SJC Communities below, ask a friend which one they belong to or contact the office outlining the community you’d like to be invited to! Enjoy!
