Sunday Gathering

COVID-19 Safe.

We gather together each Sunday to make much of Jesus, worship, pray, share stories, receive teaching, share communion, encourage and enjoy each other. 

We’re back meeting face-to-face in our usual location on Sundays at 9:30am.

Address: Blaxland Public School, Baden Place, Blaxland

Soma Kids & Creche

Our kids at Soma have their own time of learning during our Sunday Gathering. Our kids ministry – for children aged from 3-7 – engages children with the gospel through stories, song and play. Parents are welcome to be in this space.

Our littles are also catered for during our Sunday Gathering. Any child who is under the age of 3 and aren’t dependant on their parents are welcome to join. Creche leaders engage with children through play, song and story. Parents are also welcome to be in this space. All of our helpers and leaders have been screened and trained through our ChildSafe procedures.

Soma Kids and Creche run during the teaching time of our gathering. Children are welcomed and encouraged to engage as we sing, share and pray as a family.

If you would like your children to participate in either of these ministries, please make sure your child is registered for their program and signed in electronically each Sunday before the gathering commences. All children also need to be signed out and collected at the end of the teaching time. Please keep your phone on hand in case your child needs you. 

We also have toys in the main gathering space for those children who would like to remain with their parents. Noise is fine!
