Explorers Club for ages 10-16 meets Sunday afternoon from 4:30 to 5:30.  This is a casual time where the young people can choose to play

games or do crafts and relax and visit with their friends. Occasionally,  there are special activities or speakers.

All children are welcome depending on space.  Each one must have a registration form filled in with parent contact information.  This registration form will be filled out by their parent on the first visit to club.

Join us this Sunday, 27 June at 10am for our annual friend day.  Everyone is our friend so everyone is welcome!  Bring a friend with you and stay after the service for a BBQ.

The service will be held outside under cover to ensure proper Covid guidelines are met.

Building Works Update

The steel frame is in place.  The ground insulation and concrete floor are next on the agenda.  The walls and roof should follow shortly after.  Our contractor had hoped to have the outside completed by Easter, but with so many delays, we must be patient.  All if God’s time and for God’s glory.
