VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Here we are at the beginning of October and planning has started for the 2019 Christmas Project.

The Christmas Project aims to help Gold Coast families doing it tough at Christmas. Last year we provided 500 Christmas food hampers and approximately 3,000 gifts. This year we will aim to provide 550 hampers plus gifts to families in need.

Again this year we are calling for volunteers to help with packing the hampers of Christmas food for each family and selecting and packing the gifts for each family member.

International Day of Prayer

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER 
 
Over 200 million Christians are persecuted for their faith in the top 50 countries where it’s most dangerous to follow Jesus.

Small Group | Divorcecare

Thursday, 18 July – Thursday, 19 September: 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm
Newlife Robina – 4 Greenwich Court Robina 4226, Kidzlife Hall Annex
Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:

A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.

A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

For more information on the topics covered:

The program normally runs for 13 weeks, however this group will meet weekly on Thursdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm for 10 weeks, and will also include a Saturday session (date to be confirmed).

The $25.00 cost covers the cost of the manual. If you are interested, but are concerned with the cost, please consider registering your interest and Cheryl Bailey will be in contact to discuss options.


For more details or to join a small group please contact Anna Couston: [email protected]
