Christian Meditation (prayerful listening)

Every Friday afternoon a group meets from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Church to reflect on a passage from the Bible. This group applies a ‘prayerful listening’ approach to the Lectionary Gospel Scripture of the week. Our desire is to hear and discover God's will, as we follow a method known as ‘Lectio Divina’― a traditional Christian prayer-focused approach to Bible meditation. All those with an interest in Christian meditation are welcome. No experience is necessary. Please contact Charmaine at the Church Office for further details.

Men's breakfast

Once a month men meet at church for a cooked breakfast and discussions on issues affecting blokes. Please contact Dave Sheppard phone 473-6249 to confirm your attendance for catering purposes.

Presbyterian Women (Formerly APW)

The Presbyterian Women's Fellowship meets every third Tuesday of the month at 10.30 am. and enjoy fellowship and a shared lunch together. Amongst other things they also organise an annual Mission lunch, a seniors' Christmas lunch, catering, and visitation to retirement villages/homes.  Eve would love to hear from you if you would like more information, or please come on the day. Contact Eve Maxwell, phone 473 6905
