Kid’s Club
Tuesday, 30 January 2018 09:20

Kid’s Club is a bit like 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 - Friday from 9.30am - 11.30am.

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

Intergenerational Worship
Tuesday, 30 January 2018 09:17

Church doesn't have to be staid. It also doesn't need to have smoke machines and guitar solos. At GIRUC we worship with a variety of contemporary and traditional hymns and songs. We are experimenting with an engaged style, so that people at all levels of age and ability can learn and grow together.

 
Curly Questions
Tuesday, 30 January 2018 09:05

On the second Sunday of Easter, we thought about Doubting Thomas, and, following his example, came up with a series of curly questions which we are going to have a bash at thinking about over the next few months. The questions included:

  • Why do bad things happen to good people?
  • Why believe in the resurrection?
  • How can we believe in miracles in the age of science?
  • How can I experience God?
Come along and participate in the discussion - and maybe add your own question into the mix!

 
Christmas Day Service

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year
Wednesday, 13 December 2017 10:34

As the School, Kindergarten, adult and children's programs in the Centre come to an end for 2017, the Glen Iris Road Uniting Church wishes the local community a wonderful, safe and love-filled Christmas and holiday season. Thank you to the many people who donated to our Christmas appeal; all toys, food and monetary donations have been passed on to Camcare Ashburton for distribution to local families doing it tough at the moment. The Team Holiday program for children will be running throughout January in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Centre; access is from the Glen Iris Primary School grounds. The rest of the Centre will be open at irregular hours throughout the end of December and January. Please send an email if you would like to contact us for any reason.
