Every Sunday we gather around the Jesus Story at 10am (85 Gillies St, Fairfield -- operating online during COVID-19). We are a welcoming, inclusive and diverse group. The formal service runs for just over an hour and includes music, poetry and prayer. Afterwards we gather for tea, tisane and coffee to chat and explore being in community.
If you're not sure about the structure of traditional Sunday workshop, then come along to Praxis. Run on occasional Thursday evenings we'll explore connecting to ourselves, each other and God through poetry, meditation and being in community. For more details please contact Rev Sangster at email@example.com.
We also hold many other community events here -- Aikido, yoga, choir, impro theatre, qigong, etc. Please see below for more information and dates.
