mainly for children, youth and parents/caregivers
St Andrew's Youth meet each Friday night during school terms. A typical Friday night includes games, hanging out with friends, music and a short Bible Study. Many of the ideas for the program come from the group members, so there is always something for everyone.
All youth from Year 5 through High School are welcome.
More info at SaYouth Facebook Page check-it-out.
The following pic describes the program for the first Term:
TOFMs is a group which provides opportunities for mums with preschoolers to have some "time out" from the hectic pace and challenges of a mother's daily life. TOFMs usually meets from 9.45am Wednesday fortnightly in school terms, and uses much of the excellent indoor and outdoor safe spaces at St Andrew's.
Note: In 2019, TOFMs will commence in Term 2.
Whilst the children are provided with a relevant program for their age and capabilities, the mums meet for their separate program of discussions, craft and relaxing activities. Morning Tea is shared separately with both mums and children (a great opportunity for a "HOT Coffee!!")
Children's program leaders are cleared with Working with Children Checks (NSW Govt) and Uniting Church Safe Place practices are in place.
Playtime is a welcoming place, operating on a "playgroup" style for pre-school children and their parent/caregiver. There is a mix of structured play (including craft and musical activities) and free play using the secure indoor and outdoor shaded spaces. The group's main play space is St Andrew's air-conditioned Auditorium.
The program starts at 9.30am on Monday mornings and includes time for a shared morning tea.
