THE EVERGREENS is a group for Senior Single Women.  We meet on the last Thursday of each month, usually at 21 Wiseman Street, Kenmore, at 11 am.  We have a varied programme followed by lunch together.  There is also the opportunity to join with others with similar interests, to go to concerts, good movies or Coach Trips – things that you would not feel comfortable doing on your own.

 

We endeavour to reach out to others in a similar situation and draw them into the Church Fellowship.

Creative Chic’s Craft Club

12pm - 4pm

Creative Chics is a sewing/craft club that meets at Centenary Community Hub, 171 Dandenong Road, Mt Ommaney. We have chosen to meet at a neighbourhood centre in our local community to provide a neutral base for inviting Christian and non-Christian friends alike to meet to sew/create in a friendly atmosphere.

 

We meet monthly, usually on the third Saturday in the month from 12-4 pm. Women of any age (18+) can join us with their favourite craft . Members of our group  are currently bringing hand sewing, sewing clothes, general crafts, quilting and knitting to the meeting.

 

Beginners to experienced sewers/knitters/crafters are all welcome. During the informal meeting members bring their own work to do and work while chatting to others. From time to time we have demonstrations/sharing of skills/techniques. We are considering going to craft shows together and craft shop crawls, even a craft weekend away!

 

The cost is $5 and members take it in turns to provide afternoon tea. For more information please contact Jane Silcox via janesilcox@gmail.com

Sundays Services

Sunday School, also known as “Kids Club” seeks to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of church families and visiting children on Sunday mornings. During school terms, Kids Club runs in conjunction with both the 8am and 10am services. Primary school aged children are involved in small group, Bible-based activities which are age-appropriate. They are encouraged to grow in their knowledge and love of God and in their sense of belonging to our church family.

Parents are always welcome at Kids Club. Especially for younger children, this may help them settle, and an extra pair of hands is always appreciated by the leaders. During school holidays, supervised activities are provided.

Multiple Times Per Year

This group has been in existence for a number of years and is a wonderful way of meeting people who attend the different Sunday services. It is also available for any friends people want to bring along. We meet around five times a year. There are two activities remaining for 2011. On Saturday 10th September there is a car rally and Saturday 5th November a trip to Wivenhoe Dam. Perhaps the secret of the successful continuation of this group is the participation of many different people in the organization of the events. The Ferryman Cruise up the Pumicestone Passage and a dinner at Prima Vera Restaurant have been two very successful activities in the last few months.

One Hour Each Week

Kids Hope Australia is an initiative of World Vision Australia and is a mentoring ministry built on a partnership between our Church and the local primary school. Kids Hope mentors are caring adults from our church who spend one hour each week with a child identified by the school. The idea is simple, but the results can change lives. Mentors are screened, interviewed and trained according to the Kids Hope Aus guidelines. Initially mentors commit for one year, but if the child, parents, school and mentor are willing, the relationship may continue throughout the primary school years. Each mentor is supported by a prayer partner who commits to praying for the mentoring relationship.

Saturday Nights

24-7 is a not for profit organisation run to give kids something fun to do on Saturday nights that is low cost and in a safe environment. All leaders have a blue card and a church leader authorisation.

Youth group brings teenagers up through highschool knowing that there is a better alternative than the worldview of partying, drinking and inappropriate social practices that teenagers are pressured into doing.

Our leaders believe in a God that loves and cares for us, but that is not something that is pressured or required of the teens to participate.
