Men's Garden Shed

Garden Shed 1 Optus Satellite Facility Belrose

Most men have a 'Garden Shed', a place of escape, a place where men can be men!!

This is the name given to our church's men's group. We meet three or four times a year on an ad hoc basis, when we find something to interest us.

Meetings are informal, stimulating and fun, it is a great opportunity for men of the congregation to form and strengthen friendships.

 

The Garden Shed, a place of surprise and variety. Who knows what we will be doing in the coming years. Come and join us.

Picnic at Wildflower Garden

St. Ives Uniting Church Women’s Day Fellowship (WDF) - is a group of approximately 20 women who meet on the first Tuesday of each month in the Wesley Room.

We begin our get together with morning tea at 10.00am. Our meetings are very varied and we aim to have a good mixture of faith, fun and fellowship.

One of the aims of this group is to nurture a fellowship between members that is a true expression of Christ-like acceptance of, and caring and compassion for, each other.

New members are always welcome - if you would like any further information please contact Dianne (President) on 8065 7286.

St. Ives Uniting Church Friday Night Group (TFNG) has get-togethers twice a month usually on Friday evenings at members' homes.

We're working aged men and women who enjoy getting together to relax and offer each other support at the end of a busy week. We do lots of different things including DVD nights, nights out at local dramatic performances, bushwalks, and sharing about our work or voluntary organisations we're involved in. We come from all walks of life but have a common interest in wanting to support one another in a relaxed atmosphere, and we encourage each other to have input into the group's activities. Maureen Owen is the contact person for TFNG (0432 948 213 metowen@gmail.com) and she is able to provide information about our next get-together.

Playgroup - is a great time for pre-schoolers and their parents, grandparents or carers for indoor and outdoor play activities, social chat, storytelling and music.

We offer a variety of activities to the youth according to interest and availability.

SMG is held every Sunday from 9.30 am - 10.30 am. For further details click on the following link - Children and Families.

Church Garage Sales

The Church Garage Sales are a treasure trove of items for sale.

Two Garage Sales are held each year raising essential funds for our church. At our last Sale over 54 members of the congregation experienced a tiring but rewarding day.

This is hard work but at closing time we all had a wonderful feeling of participation, friendship and achievement.

Our 2020 Garage Sales will commence in May. Come and join in the fun of selling and take home treasures, even if they do need to be recycled next year!
