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.

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

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.

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 first 2018 Garage Sale was held on Saturday May 5th. Our second will be held on Saturday November 3rd. Come and join in the fun of selling and take home treasures, even if they do need to be recycled next year!
