When Covid restrictions lift

Since early last year, most of our regular special events have had to be suspended due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

The following shows the pattern of events we have throughout the year which we will progressively resume as the restrictions are lifted.

Church Camp March

Held at the Leisure Centre and Resort north of Wollongong, people stay in motel-style units, with lunch and dinner provided on the Saturday and Sunday. It is a wonderful opportunity to relax in the company of other christians, getting to know one another better, and enjoy the beachside environment. There is an informal service on Sunday morning, and on Saturday night people play games or whatever else they choose.

The annual fete. October

This is a social event for the whole community.

Jumping castle, toys, 'whack-a-rat', face painting for the children. Books, craft, cakes. Come along and buy special Christmas cards. Chutney, marmalade, jams, White Elephants, collectables. As well there will be BBQ, great food stalls, morning tea, snacks, ice-creams and soft drinks.

Great Entertainment!
