St Paul’s Social Groups

St Paul’s Social Groups

About Us:     St. Paul’s began in 1892, and while the buildings and surrounds have changed over time, the people and families have continued to worship in a vibrant Christ-centred community. We are a very social community and host a number of groups and events.

 

Men’s Spirituality Group (MSG): MSG explores faith and spirituality from a male perspective over pizza and wine. MSG is a safe place for members to share and be fed as we deal with the demands of family, work and identity. Meetings: first and third Tuesday evenings of the month in the Parish Centre.

Tuesday Circle, Women’s Group: The group starts with a cup of tea or coffee and a social time for half an hour followed by one hour of group study. Usually the group selects a Christian themed book to study over several months. The women who attend find the group supportive and a way of making connections and furthering friendships in a multi-age group. Meeting: first and third Tuesdays, 10:30am-12pm in the Parish Centre.

Soulmates Lunches: a bimonthly luncheon for men and women to enjoy fellowship and fun.

Sunday School: While parents sit in pews, at St Paul’s a team of energetic parishioners share the faith of the church with our children in the Parish Centre. Sunday School teaches primary school aged children the same readings and lessons as the adults but through music, craft, prayer and readings. All primary school aged children are welcome. Meetings: school term, 10am services.

J2A: (Journey to Adulthood) is a discussion group for high school students. Run by young adult leaders, it aims to discuss Anglican faith as it relates to young people today. Meetings: Sundays during the school term at the 10am services.

Youth Group: Youth Group is for young people from 12 to 20 years old, who get together over pizza and fun activities to enjoy an inclusive Christian based community, Meetings: 6pm on the first Saturday night of each month. Cost: $10 covers supper and materials.

Meditation: Christian meditation is one of the earliest, and simplest, form of prayer. It involves continuous repetition of a mantra (a word of phrase that is the prayer) to the exclusion of all else. This is a still and silent exercise of prayer and is conducted in the Sanctuary –which is a very calming and sacred space. All are welcome. Meetings: 30 minutes every Wednesday at 5pm.

Choir: The choir provides the opportunity for friendship and fellowship among those who love to sing. Ages range from 7 to 80-plus, with girls, boys, men and women all singing together. Meetings: weekly on Thursday evenings.

 

We invite you to join our congregation to share in worship, spiritual nurturing and fellowship in our community of faith.
