G'Day all,

I'd love you to join us this Sunday for our first monthly gathering of 2024!

We are grateful to be meeting on Bob Grice's Nut Farm @ 209 Burgun Rd, North Maleny. Bob, a local 80-something macadamia farmer, built some dorms and a community hall on his farm for Christian camps, retreats and worship gatherings. It's beautiful, serene and perfect for us to gather, play games (footy, lawn games, ping pong or an old pool table in the hall!), explore the hills, share a picnic and then worship Jesus.

Relax, Explore + Play from 3 pm

There are some lawn games for us to use as well as some old darts, ping pong and table tennis (or BYO sports gear). There's plenty of room to run, hide and play some footy/cricket as well. You can also just relax on the grassy hills!

Gather from 400 pm, Eat from 415 pm

If we can all aim to be there around 4 pm, we can start to eat around 415. Our plan is for everyone to bring a picnic for themselves (and whoever is coming with you) plus a little bit extra to share with those around or those who come without.

Communion + Worship from 445pm

Sally + Tyler Contessi and their family are going to lead adults and kids alike in a short Bible reading, prayer and reflection on drawing near to God. They'll lead us into communion (hopefully on our picnic rugs) before we head inside for Jared and the team to lead us in worship.

Pack-up + Home at 545 pm

It's my deepest hope that we can start our year well - cherishing God, his presence and each other.
