Our Evening Service will tonight start a teaching series that examines how, as followers of Jesus, we are but passing through this world. Titled ‘Strangers in a Strange Land’, the series will explore of the books of Daniel and 1 Peter, as well as including a number of one-off messages.
Please join us at 5.30pm for worship and afterwards for dinner each Sunday night. Kids club and creche are always provided.
This Sunday (10th July) at our 5.30pm Evening Service, our very own Trevor Hamblen will be sharing his testimony. Come and be inspired as this wise and gracious man of God shares his story. As always dinner follows – all welcome.
This Friday and Saturday (May 27 & 28) we will be hosting ‘The Watchman School of Intercession’ prayer training. This will be a fantastic way to be inspired and equipped to pray our world. Please call Pem on 0405 149 602 to register your interest.
Following our candlelit communion service tonight (7pm start) we will have a screening of ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ All brave souls welcome (note the MA15+ rating).
Celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ with us this Easter at one or more of our creative worship services:
- Maundy Thursday (March 24th) – 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 and death
- Good Friday (March 25th) – 9am: A sombre yet creative worship experience remembering the death of Christ.
- Easter Sunday (March 27th) – 9am & 5.30pm: Bring a flower to either of our Easter Day services to help celebrate the new life we can have ‘because he lives’.

Each Sunday throughout January our 5.30pm Evening Service is held at Emery Park, in Park Road, Gerroa. 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 Jesus is still relevant in 2016, 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. All welcome.
Join us this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus together:

Each Christmas the churches of Gerringong (Anglican, Catholic & Uniting) combine to produce a local Carols service in the Gerringong Town Hall on the Sunday night before Christmas. Local talent is the focus of the evening and the night is always a very enjoyable time with a wonderful community atmosphere.
‘Carols 2015’ will be held from 7.30pm in the Town Hall on Sunday 20th December. The evening concludes around 9pm to allow kids (and Mum & Dad) to get to bed at a reasonable hour.
