• Homegroups are the Central Nervous System of Central Church. We currently have about 25 groups meeting throughout the greater Ipswich area on most days and nights of the week. Homegroups are where people connect. Each group is slightly different, but most include the basics of food, conversation, discussions about faith and the Bible and support for one another. To join a group, contact the church office.
Get involved with Children and Young People!
