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

We farewelled Hannah in mid 2020 and said thank you to her on behalf of all the Kids Club families.

At this stage, Kids Club is not going to be run in early 2021, but watch this space for updates.

 

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.

 
Intergenerational Worship

Due to the nature of Intergenerational worship, we will still worship in that style, but online rather than in person usually on the third Sunday of the month, except December and January. (4 December 2020)

 

On the third Sunday of the month, we explore a new way of "doing church" together. Instead of a long (though of course very fascinating :) ) sermon surrounded by hymns and prayers, we use other ways of learning and growing together. It involves 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

Although our buildings have been closed for most of 2020, the Church has been open.

The move to worshipping on zoom proved challenging to begin with, but our congregation have mastered it! We have welcomed many visitors from near and far to our services online. We worship and then go into break out groups while we have a chat over a cuppa for morning tea.

As restrictions ease, we will continue an online service, when possible, in the short term.
