Small Groups at Canterbury

Canterbury United Methodist Church offers a wide variety of small groups throughout the week to enrich the lives of our church members and community. We strive to provide a safe, comfortable, and stress-free place where individuals have the opportunity to grow spiritually, meet new people, make new friends, and learn something new. We believe that we are all on this journey together and that collectively we are stronger and can encourage one another to refocus our lives on what is truly important.

*Childcare is available during many of these small groups. If you need childcare during your small group, please indicate it when you register.
