I am excited to be starting in the role of Children and Youth Worker at Echunga Uniting Church. I have always had passion for working with children and youth. My background is in environmental management and outdoor recreation. I am also gradually working towards my masters in teaching (early childhood and primary school). There is a wonderful team at Echunga Uniting and I am looking forward to becoming a part of that team.
As a new mum I am constantly discovering the joys and challenges of parenthood! I am grateful to have such an amazing husband and supportive extended family in my life. I am also thankful to people who have encouraged me to develop my personal faith and relationship with God. I know my relationship with God is more important than anything.
I am looking forward to building new relationships in this role and providing support to families in the local region. I have already seen and experienced the positive impact of this church. I hope to continue to encourage families in the community and show them God’s amazing love.
Join us for: The Parenting Course
Sunday Morning Programs
A crèche, Sunday School and Kids Church are held during Sunday morning services during school term time.
YOUTH (YEAR 6-12’s)
Youth and young adults are a valued part of the Echunga Uniting Church community. We meet regularly in small groups, for occasional social activities and camps, and to serve the church and community in various ways
Our youth also gather for encouragement and bible study each Sunday morning during the 10:00am morning service.
Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)
Meeting fortnightly on Thursdays during school term times, the Echunga MOPS group is a community of mums who meet to relax and unwind with good friends, good food, and good fun!
Each MOPS session provides an inviting environment where women can come – just as they are – to build friendships, be encouraged, and gain practical parenting strategies. While mothers meet, children are lovingly cared for in the MOPPETS program.
A typical morning includes a yummy morning tea, listening to a speaker on a topic relevant to mothers with young children, a discussion time, and a craft.
New attendees are welcome to come along to MOPS any time during the year. The first session is free; subsequent sessions cost $5, which covers morning tea, craft and MOPPETS resources. Please also bring a piece of fruit for your child.
For more information about upcoming MOPS events, please visit the Echunga MOPS Facebook group page.
