Impact Groups

WELCOME TO IMPACT GROUPS AT NHF UPTOWN

We believe that the Gospel has the power to tangibly transform all aspects of our lives (self-identity, relationships, physical health and strength, and life/work experiences), and we are passionate about experiencing and expressing this love of Jesus Christ in our community with the people we love and serve. Impact Groups serve as a powerful means for us to experience and express the Gospel within our community. This season 8 Impact Groups at Uptown are setting out to proclaim the Gospel for the joy of our city. Join us to put our hearts together and make Word-inspired, Christ-affirming Gospel Impact on our daily lives. 

We meet weekly on Sundays from 12:45pm to 2:00pm. If you wish to learn more about our Impact Groups and/or want to sign up to join one, please contact Pastor Siyoon at siyoon.yu@newhopefellowship.ca
