Activity groups are a good way to meet new people and build friendships over common interests. We have groups for sports, board games and social events, hanging out with our homeless neighbors, and more!
Beginning Fall, 2019 there will be a new Mom’s Playgroup. Our vision is to create space for new and experienced mothers to explore Houston and live life together. Our focus is to combat the isolation of motherhood by creating an open community where you can see a friendly face when you need it. We hope to meet at playgrounds, coffee shops, or host homes over coffee and play. Members do not need to attend Access to join. We love meeting new people! Please email email@example.com to be added to our email list. Our first meetup will be on September 6, 2019!
Access's fellowship ministry makes space for new and current members of the Access community to develop meaningful friendships, deepen current ones in, and help newcomers plug into community. We will host socials/fun events monthly throughout the year. Send us an e-mail to be added to our facebook group or mailing list for updates about new social events.

What began as a one-time act to serve our homeless neighbors in Hermann Park back in December 2009 evolved over the years into a regular ministry that seeks to bring God and fellowship to people of all walks of life. The Hangout does this by embracing each outing like any other time among friends - with games, music and casual conversations. Perhaps most importantly, it seeks to develop a long-term partnership with our neighbors where all parties have a share in creating the space of the community. A group from Access goes out each second Saturday of the month.
Do you like to play basketball? Join us for some basketball and fun- All skill levels and ages are welcome! The basketball group will be playing every second Saturday of the month at 10129 Emnora Lane, unless noted. This is open to everyone on a first RSVP first serve basis. More details will be provided via email, if interested.
Creation Care Group - ON HIATUS
The Access Creation Care Group has officially started and will be meeting on the Second Sunday of each month from Noon to 1:30 pm in Room 1.01 for discussion, worship, prayer and activities around learning to be good stewards of God’s good creation. For the next few months we will begin with a Learning Group using the Study Guide at the back of the book Tending to Eden by Scott Sabin ($12 book cost) as we study together the theology behind Christ-centered environmental stewardship and eco and social justice issues related to poverty and the degradation of the natural resource base.
This group will also shepherd and lead our relationship with Plant With Purpose as we move into a partnership with our newly selected region of Cornillon, Haiti. The Creation Care Learning Group looks forward to sharing what we have learned with Access Church and the broader community in Houston. We welcome your participation as you are able as we together, worship and honor the Lord through caring for his beautiful creation.
We are forming a running group at Access starting Fall 2018. Those interested would meet up Sunday once a month before church and run together from 7:30 or 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM. Potential locations- Memorial Park, Buffalo Bayou, Heights Hike and Bike Trail, and Terry Hershey. We'll gauge the route and distance by the level of interest. There will be potential to do 5K's and other races together in the future. All skill levels welcome!
During softball season a few times a year, the softball group puts together an Access team that plays weekly for a few consecutive weeks (those of all experience levels welcome).
