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 Connect Group.  There are a number of Connect Groups in different locations offering a variety of interests and styles.  We hope you can find one to be a part of.

Man Cave Central is a platform for men to build legit relationships, be challenged, inspired and encouraged. It’s not a religious experience or a bible study, rather a forum for covering the bases that need covering in the life of a Kingdom man, and what goes on in the Man Cave, stays in the Cave.
