Gerringong food drive

Once again our community has the opportunity to donate non-perishable food items and/or money to those doing it tough in the Illawarra this Christmas. The Anglican, Catholic and Uniting churches of Gerringong are coming together to collect food & funds which this year will be donated to the meals ministry of Wollongong Mission who serve around 400 meals to people every week.

Thanks to the generosity of Khan’s Super IGA Gerringong, donated items can be placed in the specially marked trolley at the entrance to the store from: Monday 15th – Saturday 27th October. Alternatively, food items can be left at the following addresses during this time: 6 Armstrong Ave, 7 Blackwood St, 23 Sharpe Pl, 47 Pacific Ave, or 40 Stafford St, Gerroa. Cash or credit card donations can also be made via the volunteers manning the donations trolley at the IGA on: Thursday 25th & Friday 26th October.    

Alpha coming to Gerringong

Want to know more about the Christian faith? Got questions about Jesus and his church?The ‘Alpha’ course has answers.  Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes – you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Contact Swanny or Laura on 0401 666 468‬ if you would like to be part of the Alpha course being run in their home from late August.

Join us this Easter as we celebrate ‘Jesus the Game Changer’:

  • Maundy Thursday (March 29th) – 7pm: A candlelit communion service remembering the last supper Jesus had with his disciples. The service concludes with a Tenebrae mediation – a series of seven bible readings during which the sanctuary grows darker reflecting the declining loyalty of the disciples during Jesus’ arrest, crucifixion & death
  • Good Friday (March 30th) – 9am: A sombre worship experience remembering the death of Christ. This year we will consider the seven final saying of Jesus from the cross.
  • Easter Sunday (April 1st) – 9am & 5.30pm: Join us as we celebratory the resurrection of Christ and ask what makes Jesus such a game changer for both us as individuals and for the world.

Wallace Sharpe

100 years ago the tiny township of Gerringong was rocked by the news that the popular Wally Sharpe had been killed in the Great War while serving with the 6th Australian Light Horse in Palestine. Wally was a committed member of our church, and Wednesday 28th March marks the 100th anniversary of his death. From 10.30am we will be remembering ‘Uncle Wally’ and all Australian service personnel who continue to serve in various peacekeeping operations today. All welcome.

Jesus the Game Changer comes to GUC

Jesus Christ has made an indelible mark on human history and He continues to do so through His followers. Yet many people do not realise that the values western democracies are built on originate in the life and teaching of Jesus – the equality of all, servant leadership, care for the poor and marginalised, dignity of women and children, education, to name just a few.

Join us at any of our Sunday worship services or at any of our mid-week home-groups for this 6-week video-based series as host Karl Faase travels to the UK, USA, Singapore, India and Australia, interviewing authors, academics and modern-day game changers about how the life and teaching of Jesus changed the world and why it matters. For more info about the series, visit the website, or call Rev Peter Chapman on 4234 1044 to find out how to get on board.
