CONNECt Groups

Our vision is for everyone associated with King’s Church to be CONNECted through our

Adult Small Group Programme

As part of this, we would encourage everyone to belong to a CONNECt group for healthy growth, personally and as a people.

What is a CONNECt Group?

In the New Testament we find descriptions of early church life that are very appealing. Groups who regularly met together in each others houses were close knit, dynamic, and excited about their faith.  In King’s Church Mildenhall, we see involvement in a CONNECt group as one of the most important ways to begin growing and continue growing as a follower of Jesus.

What role do CONNECt groups play within the Church?

In the book of Ephesians the Church is described as a body with a structure, ‘held together by every supporting ligament [which] grows andbuilds itself up in love, as each part does its work.’ (Ephesians 4:16). We believe that CONNECt groups play an important part in encouraging godliness, spiritual fruit and gifting, biblical understanding and building and developing relationships. All in all creating strong church foundations. ConnectGroupsSmall3Though each one of our CONNECt groups is unique, all of the groups have the same aims, which are:

  • To glorify and worship God
  • To build quality relationships
  • To study the Bible and apply it to our lives
  • To develop spiritual gifting and maturity
  • To grow and plant new groups
  • To be a witness in the community
  • To have fun

Why go to a CONNECt group?

The Bible explains God has arranged a special role for each Christian in the local Christian community (1 Cor. 12:11-25).
To that end, we emphasize becoming part of a CONNECt group where we can share Christian love with one another in practical ways, worship God, learn about the Bible and develop our giftings.  CONNECt groups often take part in fun and exciting group activities, offering an ideal environment to develop deeper friendships.
A small CONNECt group provides an opportunity to meet and to get to know a more manageable number of people than you might meet at a Sunday service. That means there is a chance to get to know a group of people well, and therefore to be able to support and encourage them, and to be supported and encouraged.


Our CONNECt groups meet weekly on Monday and Wednesday evenings as well as on Thursday mornings and Thursday evenings.


There are currently seven CONNECt groups meeting at various locations, reflective of where people who are part of KCM live.


Each CONNECt group is led by experienced leaders. Those leaders are responsible for overseeing the life of their CONNECt group and ensuring that the group is led in a way that glorifies God. We are tremendously blessed to have loving and servant-hearted CONNECt group Leaders who play such a significant part in the life of the church.

Future vision

We are always looking at developing the future leaders of these groups and in growing and planting new groups.


If you would like to enquire about joining a CONNECt group, then please contact Paul Giddings at or fill in a 'welcome' card at KCM and we will help you find a CONNECt group that is appropriate for your circumstances and one in which you can grow and serve.

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be a time of singing with opportunity for church members to pray or read a passage from the bible. After prayers there will be a preach from one of the leaders sometimes with a chance to respond at the end of the service.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.

What happens to the children at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the children at KCM for ages 0-16. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and register them.

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?
