Here at Tauranga Elim we place value on being connected.  We appreciate the importance of gathering in small groups where we can get to know people and really ‘do life together’.  We are designed to do life as a part of a family, part of community.  Connecting with others is where friendships are built, faith is inspired, encouragement is found and support is given.

If you’re making this your church home, we encourage you to consider joining a Life Group.  There are a number of groups in different locations offering a variety of interests and styles.  We hope you can find one to be a part of.
