What’s On This Week in September?

Friday Fun Night PhotosOur Plastic Pipe Instrument

It was nother full FFN with Making Music as the theme. After a yummy dinner of nachos, children had a range of activities to make music. Ranging from making their own shakers; playing keyboards; learning how to use a trumpet mouthpiece; making sounds with downpipes and jandals; making music with water in jars and making an origami piano, the church was full of all kinds of musical sounds. Before we finished there were demonstrations of what the different instruments could do by some of the children. Another fun Friday night. See our Facebook page for more photos.

Cafe Church This SundayNew Life

This Sunday is Cafe Church, our interactive, family-friendly service which starts at 9.30am with a shared breakfast/morning tea. Cafe Church is held on the third Sunday of each month, and has a focus on discussion and interaction. Toast, cereal and drinks are provided, but you are welcome to bring a plate of something tastier to share if you would like.

This week our topic is New Life.

We’d love to see you this Sunday.

Floral Art WorkshopFloral Art Workshop

We are lucky to have talented people in our church community who are prepared to share their skills. On 13 September Robin held a mini workshop about floral arrangements. From a bare container she created a beautiful display of greenery and flowers. Then it was time for everyone to have a turn creating their own arrangement.
