Young Family Group
The Young Family group meet on an ‘off-the-cuff’ basis – perhaps every couple of months, as planning ahead with many families can be hard to do. So, we meet at short notice at a suggested venue, eg a park or someone’s house for a byo lunch and fellowship. It is a great group to bring other family members who may not attend church, as there is no preaching, just socialising. For more information, contact us.
first Sunday of every second month Commencing at 3pm for arvo tea
Our parish has a strong membership of parishioners who have attended a Cursillo weekend and who continue to meet together regularly for worship, fellowship and share in afternoon tea before the group reunion. They constitute an integral part of our parish and enjoy lively, uplifting songs of praise, and through their faith, contribute substantially to the life of our Parish and our Dicoese.
For more information, contact us.
