Connect Groups


Here at Tauranga Elim we place value on being connected. We love getting together at our Sunday services and 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 strongly encourage you to consider joining a Connect Group. We have a variety of mid-week Connect Groups in different locations and many styles. You can check out the events calendar HERE to see if it’s Connect Group week.



Kelvin and Kathryn Clout lead the “Business Focus” connect group. “We particularly welcome business owners, the self employed, or those looking to get into business. Our aim is to develop authentic relationship and share the joys and challenges of operating businesses which give glory to God, and prosper for the benefit of our families, our local church, and the wider Kingdom of God. We actively pray for, and support, each other, and seek to enjoy ourselves along the way.”  Call or email us if you are interested in attending.
