Young members of Gerringong Uniting Church help some new friends get up on a surf board in early 2015.

Last summer members of our church were involved in helping to welcome refugees to Australia by doing what Gerringong residents do best – surf!

‘Surfers for refugees’ was birthed out of a desire to use this great Aussie pastime to show hospitality to newcomers to Australia, many of whom have experienced great trauma prior to reaching our shores. Now titled ‘Surf Together’, this exciting ministry will take place on two dates in early 2016: Saturday 30th January & Saturday 12th March. Both days will take place at Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa, conditions allowing.

Those who joined us last summer loved the day in the water, but even more so loved being welcomed to our great country. A number of relationships were kicked off which have deepened throughout the year. Woo hoo! Always good to make new friends.

We look forward to Surf Together in January and March – all welcome. For more info please call Marty Richardson on 0402 374 175.

The churches of Gerringong have once again come together to coordinate the Gerringong Christmas food drive. Over 1300 items of food were donated and around $1250 in cash donations were also received. This year all proceeds will be going to Wollongong Mission’s meals program as they support struggling families this Christmas. Thanks to everyone who contributed and to our local IGA for their support.
