A Family Group is usually a good deal larger in membership than a Home Group and can have anywhere up to 30 members. It focuses on becoming a closer community through the sharing of a meal and general conversations with other members of the group rather than Bible study. It is the perfect environment in which to invite new members of the Parish, family and friends. It is a relaxed and non-threatening environment and a place of fun and laughter.
Below is a list of current Family Groups within the Parish:
‘Richo’s’ family group started in 2008 and has continued to share happy times together. The group consists of all ages and usually meets for lunch (around midday) on a Sunday after the 9.00am service approximately every six weeks.
This family group is the whole congregation of St James, Wellington Point and any others from St Georges who wish to come.
The Young Family Group meets one weekend each month; either at a member family’s home or for a day trip in the area. It is a chance for fellowship, for parents to share their experiences and for children to play with other children being brought up in homes with similar values.
