Children’s & Youth Activities:
Sunday School is held every Sunday during school terms at 9.00am in the Undercroft. Pre-Primary and Primary School age children are welcome to join in the liturgy based activities. Worship, stories and activities for specific age groups are well supervised by qualified people. Everyone goes up to the Eucharistic service in the Church in time for Holy Communion and the children stay with their families in the church for the remainder of the service.
Youth Group is held fortnightly during school term time in the Parish Hall. This caters for the high school/uni student age group. Activities include games, and messy games, movie nights, scavenger hunts, music nights and all things enjoyed by this age group, especially supper!
Friday Afternoon Kids Club will be launched in 2019, starting 22nd February. It will start straight after school from 3pm, finishing at 5pm with dinner, and will include games, craft and stories. We intend to offer an after-school pickup from Ironside State School – and students from other schools are most welcome. More information to come soon!

Care to Cook
A team of Parishioners cook and freeze meals in individual serving size containers which are stored in the Hall kitchen until we have a substantial number, which are then taken to Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Fortitude Valley who operate a soup kitchen for those in need. New cooks to join the team are always welcome. Winter is a high-demand season, please contact the Parish Office (3870 8887) if you would like to join in this very much needed and worthwhile ministry.
Pastoral Care Group
Members of this group regularly make visits to those who are home-bound or in nursing homes. Their visits include administering Communion as requested and spending quality time with them.
Meeting of the Ways
A team of Parishioners conduct weekly classes to teach English as a second language to all comers from many different nationalities, every Thursday during school term time from 9.00am to 11.00am. They cater for complete beginners through to the more advanced. The classes are free.
