Activities

All upcoming one-off events are listed on the ‘Blog’ page, but see below a list of some of the regular activities that you can contribute to at GUC…

Boys in Gerringong (BiG): Run on Wednesday nights (6.30-8pm) during school term, BiG helps boys to learn more about themselves and about the BiG God in whose image they are made. As well as nurturing our boys’ physical, emotional, social & spiritual development, BiG is also a time when everyone has BiG fun! Activities in 2015 have included woodwork, snake handling, pet care, cooking, water fights, water slides, like nights, paper planes, and movie making. Each week involves some games, an activity related to the night’s theme, as well as a Bible story that speaks to that theme. The evening concludes with a light supper. Call Peter Swann on 0401 666 468 for more info.

Girls in Gerringong (GiG): GiG is for primary school aged girls who want to learn about how to grow into a woman of God and have fun doing it! We do cooking, craft, Bible study and lots of other fun activities. We have recently been looking at how followers of Jesus can live out their faith by being aware of (and acting upon) global poverty and injustice via ‘Micah Challenge’. A light supper is provided. GiG meets in the hall on a Wednesday night during school terms. Call Tara Culey on 0429 013 007 for more info.

Disciples in Gerringong (DiG): DiG is our youth group for high school aged young people. DiG meets on Friday nights during school term from 7-9pm. Please contact Swanny on 0401 666 468 for more info.

Choir: Our church choir seeks to enhance our worship services with music by leading the singing and presenting a musical item at each 9.00am Sunday service.  We are fortunate to have between 20 and 30 people in the choir, and our practices each week are times of enjoyment, learning and caring. A wide variety of different styles of music is presented each year.

Men in the Bakery: A bunch of blokes from our church get together on a fortnightly basis on a Thursday morning at 7.30am at Jock’s Bakery in order to grow in our faith and life skills. We generally discuss a book a chapter at a time and enjoy coffee (bacon & egg rolls are optional). We are currently working our way through the Christian classic, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ by Norman Vincent Peale. Past projects have included ‘The Shack’, ‘Velvet Elvis’, and ‘Man in the Mirror’. Contact Peter 4234 1044 for more info.

Lone Rangers: The Lone Rangers are a group of single people from our church who meet intermittently throughout the year for meals and various social occasions for the purpose of laughter and fellowship.

Tuesday Morning Prayer: Each Tuesday morning at 8am, a small group of us meet in the church for prayer. We pray for the week ahead, the mission of our church, for our town, our nation and our world. We also remember in prayer the pastoral needs of those around us. All are welcome to join us.

United Women’s Ministry: This is a home group for women who meet each Tuesday night for prayer and spiritual growth. A number of women from various churches attend this group to offer support to one another and to grow in their faith. Contact Pem Lawrance on 4234 3182 for more info.

Craft groupThe craft group enjoys a great time of fellowship as we work on a wide range of crafts and relax over morning tea. We are always looking for new crafts to challenge us, and for new members to welcome. We meet together on a fortnightly basis on a Monday in the church hall from 10am to 12noon, excluding public and school holidays. For more information call Merryl Gleeson on 4234 1715.

KYB (Know Your Bible): meets every second Thursday morning during school terms in the Friendship Centre at Mayflower Village. Ladies from all churches, or none, are welcome to join us to learn from the Bible about living today. We start with a cuppa and chat at 9:45  followed by an introduction by the leader. Then we form smaller groups, there are now 20 of us, to discuss the part of the Bible we have been reading. After a short time of reflection and prayer we finish at 11:30.In 2014 we will be studying Hebrews and Judges. Interested? Please contact Barb (42341576) or Leonie (42341753).

Adult Fellowship: Our Adult Fellowship is open to men and women of all ages and aims to provide fellowship by upholding each other in both joys and sorrows. We seek to know, understand and accept each other in love, and nurture one another in faith. We find-raise for various charities, and aim to educate by inviting guest speakers on wide variety of subjects. We also keep in touch with the wider church through Presbytery and Synod support groups. We meet at 1.30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Phone Valerie Sewell on 4234 2391 for more details.

Bible fellowship: We are a Bible-study group which meets fortnightly in the church hall on a Tuesday at 10am. We work from a study guide which may cover a book of the Bible or may be theme based. At the time of writing, the current study written by John Stott, is examining ‘The Sermon on the Mount.’ Two series comprised of twelve studies each are covered each year with different members of the group leading each fortnight. Members can participate in discussion or just sit and listen. Coordinators are Dianne and Gary Falson – phone 4234 4214.

Carers Network: Our church has a team of people dedicated to providing pastoral care to people both within our church and in the general community. In addition to the caring and support that takes place as necessary, the Carers Network meets at various times throughout the year for encouragement and training, and organises various functions as a means of drawing our church family together. If you feel you would like a carer who can lend a listening ear or offer friendship & practical support, please call Pam McIver on 4234 0068. Likewise, if you feel you have the time, energy and gifts to support others, Pam would love to hear from you also.
