The primary way we seek to help women grow as followers of Jesus is through Community Groups.  While CGs include both men and women, groups often grow in such a way that women end up connecting with other women (during CG time and after) in order to support and help each other work through what it means to follow Jesus as a woman.  Even though CGs are the main way for women to connect and grow, there are a few other things listed below that you may want to be part of.

Community Groups

  • We are encouraging women to join or even start a Community Group.  Please contact Pastor Phil at phil@centralbaptistchurch.ca if you need assistance finding a women's Community Group.
