Jam Session

Fridays: 4PM to 6PM

This free afternoon group is especially for people with a musical bent but with little opportunity to join in with other budding musos to socially enjoy their good (or bad) talents. The late afternoon time slot is for people who otherwise work (9to5), study or have school commitments. There is no particular focus on genre or type/number of musical instruments. It’s just for fun! We meet at the back of the church.
If you would like to join our jam group please contact Br. Wayne on 0419 800 542, or

Bible Study Fellowship Group

Wednesdays: 7PM-9PM

Come along to our Paish Hall (Op-shop) to learn more about the Bible and what Christians’ believe.  There is usually a light supper provided and great people to chat with.  Please bring along your own personal Bible (in your 1st language) and some food to share. The Bible Study usually follows the content and context of previous Sunday night’s teaching-series. If you would like any more detail, please contact Br. Wayne on 0419800542, or
