Sunday Morning Program

During COVID, we’re getting creative online. If you’re in Grades 2 to 6, you are welcome to join us for a 30-minute TimTam challenge every Sunday at 11am (via zoom). We will have a look at the Bible story for the following Sunday, and then you have 30 minutes to create something – with whatever art you like – LEGO, watercolours, drawing, Minecraft, dress-ups, flour, plasticine, you name it. Contact Dave on 0417 310 128 if you’d like more details, and for the zoom link.

Everyone rejoins the rest of the congregation at morning tea.

All Age Worship

On the first Sunday of the month we have All Age Worship (AAW) and children and young people stay in the service to share Holy Communion. On these Sundays there are quiet art-making activities inside the church and children of all ages participate.

In August 2015 AAW we celebrated two years since the report Pathways to the River was commissioned by the congregation. It addressed the future shape of children’s and youth ministry at Brunswick UC. The children made these outriggers designed by one of our leaders. The words on the sails reflect the promises we make at Baptism to:

  • nurture one another in faith
  • uphold one another in prayer
  • encourage one another in service

Activities after Worship

After worship we play table tennis, have fun with hulahoops, create pavement art with chalk, blow bubbles and make and fly paper planes.  Our wonderful green space is also great for kicking a ball around.  Lots of fun for everyone.

Nourish

Nourish is an occasional series of early evening storytelling and Holy Communion services. Designed with younger children in mind it is nevertheless a wondering space for adults also.  We gather for toasties at 6pm, have fun playing games in the hall and take our shoes off to enter the worship space to listen and respond to a story and then celebrate Holy Communion around the table.

We’re delighted to announce that there will be a special session for children (mainly primary school aged) on both Wednesdays of the school holidays.
Julie and Ian will lead the 10th of April, and Janet and Ann Soo will guide the 17th – the day before Maundy Thursday
(We are looking for a kindly kitchen supporter for both sessions)
