Church @ the beach *Extended Season*

Each new year, our 5.30pm Evening Service has been held at Emery Park, in Park Road, Gerroa throughout January. In 2019, this ‘summer season’ has been extended to include February. This means that all throughout January and February, our 5.30pm Evening service will gather not in a church building but in ‘God’s Cathedral’ by the beach!

This is a great chance to relax amongst a caring and fun community of faith. We enjoy a BYO picnic dinner (free BBQs available) and share in a brief time of informal worship and teaching. A game of cricket usually follows, as does a swim at the beach for the really keen! So if you’re not into all the trappings of ‘church’ but are interested in exploring how following Jesus will be the best way to spend 2019, this is the least ‘churchy’ option around – basically a BBQ dinner with friends, some fun acoustic music for the kids, and a short creative message. For more info, call Pete Chapman on 043 999 1980.

Join us this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Christ together as family…

Firstly, the always popular Gerringong combined churches Carols by Candlelight will be held in the Gerringong Town Hall on Sunday 23rd December from 7pm.

Then, come and check out our famous Christmas lighting display each night of the week before Christmas starting Wednesday 19th. From dark till late, we will use our white stone church building as a canvas for a spectacular light show. This year’s light show will feature hundreds of multi-coloured patterned lasers moving across the building. Sweet treats will be on offer for all who swing by for a sticky-beak and a chat.

Our two family-friendly Christmas Day services will be at 8am and 9.30am, with all offerings going to our overseas mission partners, ‘Light Home’ in India.

For more information please contact Rev Peter Chapman on 4234 1044.

We are very excited to announce that the redevelopment of our site, ie. our ‘Home Base for Mission’, is very close to commencing. However, in order to turn the first sod, we need to make up around a $30-40,000 shortfall between what we currently have and what need to complete to reconstruction. Please prayerfully consider if you and your family are able to give sacrificially to this important project. If you wish to give electronically you can do so using the following account details – account name: Gerringong Uniting Church Property Account, BSB: 634634, Account #: 100023067.

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

August 12, 2018 at 12:04 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

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.
