Welcome

Our vision as a community is to build an active, welcoming and creative Uniting Church presence in this region in the present, for the future'.

Kid’s Club

Kid’s Club is a drop-in playgroup for parents, kids and carers in the centre and is open to the public. We welcome neighbours and local parents or caregivers with pre-school children to come along and enjoy craft, colouring and free play with other children. There’s tea and coffee available, plus access to kitchen facilities for morning tea time.

During the school term, Kid’s Club runs Monday - Wednesday from 9.30am - 11.30am.

There’s no need to register, you are welcome to come along any morning.

Intergenerational Worship

On the second Sunday of the month, we are going to be exploring a new way of "doing church" together. Instead of a long (though of course very fascinating :) ) sermon surrounded by hymns and prayers, we are going to experiment with other ways of learning and growing together. It's going to involve conversation, table groups. interaction. And, yet, still singing and praying together.

We think that the key to a flourishing spiritual community is healthy relationships between people of all ages. Rather than banishing the children to a special area, we should all be the people of God together. That is what "intergenerational" means - all of us together.

You can read more about it in this article. But experiencing it is better than reading about it.

 
What To Expect

Every Sunday we gather at 10am, young and old and in between, to journey and worship together. There are usually around thirty or so of us, we meet in the Glen Iris Primary School Hall, which is part of our community centre. You don't need to dress up in your Sunday best - it's pretty informal. We use a variety of music - hymns and more contemporary. Most weeks there's a sermon. We welcome children - we want to learn and grow together as a community, and that works best when we are all together. We structure our service to make it as accessible as possible to all ages.

We particularly extend a welcome to noisy children, and are particularly keen on making roughly-rhythmic noise during the singing, and provide musical instruments for precisely that purpose.

Afterwards, morning tea. Except on the first Sunday of the month, when we have communion and stick around to relish the afterglow with our famous community BBQ.
