Starting tonight and running throughout March, our 5.30pm Evening Service will be embarking on a new series we’re calling ‘Church = me’. We will be looking the biblical understanding of church and asking ourselves how we can best be God’s church today. What needs to change? What needs to stay the same?
Our Wednesday night kids clubs for boys and girls, BiG & GiG, kick off this week at 6.30pm. See below the full programs for term 1…
Members of Gerringong Uniting Church, Welcome to Australia and Christian Surfers are hosting a day to welcome our recently arrived refugee friends on Saturday 31st January from 8.30am at Seven Mile Beach, Gerroa. The day includes a learn to Surf Session with local surfers and a BBQ lunch. Please contact Marty Richardson on 0402 374 175 if you would you like to be involved on the day by assisting with the surfing, cooking the BBQ, or just praying or hanging out and getting to know people who want to do what Aussies do.
Each Sunday throughout January our 5.30pm Evening Service is held at Emery Park, 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 2015, this is the least ‘churchy’ option around – basically a BBQ dinner with friends & a short, creative message. All welcome.
This Christmas we are lighting up the old girl in celebration of the birth of Christ. As you can see below, the results are spectacular. Swing by and check it out between 8pm & 10pm each night up until New Years.
Like many of the locals ministers and pastors in the Illawarra, each Christmas Peter records a brief Christmas spot for our local Christian radio station, Pulse 94.1, which concludes by listing the services times for their church.
Here is a link to Peter’s 2014 Christmas spot…
Our Wednesday night kids clubs for boys and girls (BiG & GiG) start term 4 tonight and have another awesome program lined up for the weeks ahead. You can download the programs below…
On Sunday October 5th our 5.30pm Evening Service will starting a new series based on the Apostles Creed titled ‘I believe’. We will be examining this foundational statement of the Christian faith and asking how we can apply it in our lives today. As always, kids club and creche is provided, and a yummy dinner follows the service. All welcome.
This Sunday night (14th) we are hosting a special ‘Invitational’ family-friendly worship service for all the members of our extended church family who in the last few years have had members of their family welcomed into God’s family via either baptism or dedication (it’s all about family, really!) This will be a special one-off occasion where we hope to welcome home all those families who have come to us seeking the Church’s help in celebrating the precious new life god blessed them with. This will be a great opportunity to live out the promises Mum & Dad made that day to set before their child the Christian faith by teaching and example and to participate in the life of the church (and it’ll be heaps fun too with some carnival themed stuff like a jumping castle & cream buns ‘n stuff). As always at our regular 5.30pm Evening Service, a yummy dinner will follow the service (but this week there’ll probably be some extra-yummy stuff). Call Pete Chapman on 4234 1044 for more details. We look forward to seeing y’all there!
