Events

Every Sunday we gather around the Jesus Story at 10am (85 Gillies St, Fairfield). We are a welcoming and diverse group.

We also hold a lot of other community events, especially during advent as we prepare to celebrate the birth of the Christ child. Please see below for these.

If you're not sure about the structure of traditional Sunday workshop, then come along to Praxis. Spiritual Praxis is about connecting to ourselves, each other and God through poetry, meditation and being in community.  It will be held on Thursdays in November (Nov 1st,  Nov 15th, Nov 29th). For more details please contact Rev Sangster at alisangster@gmail.com.
