what do you do?

We share morning tea together (and remember birthdays) and have fun reminiscing and sharing life’s experiences to encourage one another. Each month the program varies. We invite guest speakers from a wide variety of organisations who give us lots of practical information to help us journey through our senior years. Sometimes we screen a movie or documentary or stretch our brains with a quiz. Other times we enjoy an outing and fish and chips on the way home. We also pray together and have a time of singing and reflecting on God’s word.
