CHILDREN

Kids’ activities are held each Sunday during school terms. Children participate in the family worship service until after the minister’s regular children’s talk. They spend the rest of the service engaging in a wide variety of activities and craft, and interacting with Bible stories. These activities are overseen by our teachers, who are dedicated, innovative people – a steadying mix of youth and maturity.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Refugee Support

Our church community has a strong sense of social justice and a focus on supporting refugees. We have welcomed many Sudanese families into our community and helped them to settle in the Modbury area. We have offered practical support by assisting them with accommodation, clothing, furniture, employment and education.

Our International Community Group continues to support new arrivals and people from non-English speaking backgrounds

Bible Study

We have several different Bible Study groups within the Modbury congregation.

For more information about Bible Study groups, contact Gowan Armstrong on (08) 8263 8724.
