Connect

At Springwater our hope is that people connect with Jesus, with their hopes and dreams, with each other and with God.

Jesus said “Love God with all your heart and your neighbour as yourself.”

In practically working this out the Springwater community has developed various creative streams that help people engage with their own creativity but at the same time support others they are connected with or who also enjoy discussing and engaging in practical and/or creative initiatives.

At Springwater the church community has developed springs of life that have risen out of their own hopes and dreams and that help people find connection with each other and with God. These springs or expression of community are focused on three areas: supporting the community; resourcing the community & engaging the community and are shown below. All of these initiatives are church.
We believe that where two are three are gathered Jesus is there.

Supporting the community

Resourcing the community

Engaging the community

  • Contemplative Garden
  • Springwater community events
  • Music, poetry, art and creative expression – It’s Never Too Late
  • Gathering & meals

If there are any hopes and desires that you have on your heart or perhaps have been mulling over and that you have a burning desire to birth and engage with through the way of Jesus come and chat with us. We are always open to partner, network or help incubate actions that will support and enrich the local communities we are all part of.
