SMALL GROUPS AT GOLD COAST NORTH

ABOUT SMALL GROUPS


Small Groups are where our big Parish gets small, where you can get to know others and be known, grow in faith, where you can be cared for and care for others. Small Groups are the cornerstone to community life at Gold Coast North Anglican.

 

Traditionally Small Groups have also been known as Bible Studies, but we have a broader vision for Small Groups at Gold Coast North Anglican. We see a space for a variety of groups pursuing a variety of activities, all with the same goal to help people find community, care and be encouraged in faith.



HOW TO JOIN A SMALL GROUP


To join a Small Group, just look through the list and give the group leader a call to find out more information and then attend the group. You are encouraged to attend a few groups to find one that fits for you.



WHAT IF THE GROUP JUST ISN'T MY FIT?


No worries. We all get that some groups will be better shaped for who we are and others not so much. There is no pressure to keep attending a group and you are more than welcome to check out different groups to find the right fit.



WHAT IF I WANT TO START A GROUP?


Awesome! Please think about what kind of group you would like to start and contact Rev. John via email revjohndougherty@gmail.com to set up a time to discuss.


Please note there is an application and approval process.

Mainly music

The Mainly Music team is made up of volunteers who are parents and/or grandparents. These volunteers greet children with a sticker, serve the morning tea and befriend everyone who comes along.

OUR PROGRAM

HEALTHY MORNING TEA


The children have individual morning teas (arrowroot biscuits, peeled apple slices, sultanas etc) and drinks are served in sipper cups. Some children also sample the adult morning teas! This is a time of bonding and making friends.



MUSIC AND PLAY TIME

The music session covers aspects of learning, spacial knowledge, colours, counting and body parts, as well as musical awareness of dynamics, tempo, pitch, moving to the beat, and use of instruments such as handbells, claves, shakers etc. We accompany songs with many resourses such as parachutes, stretchy lycra, toy animals, coloured scarves, picture cards and feathers. Some songs have a message about God or Jesus.



MAINLY MUSIC  AT HOLY ROOD

Mainly Music is open to all young families in our community. It is held on Thursday mornings, at the Holy Rood Family Centre, 192 Tamborine-Oxenford Road, Oxenford. (Recess during school holidays).


The session starts at 9.15am and we have 30 minutes for home-made nut-free morning tea for parents and children, and the children get to play with toys. This is followed by 30 minutes of music.


The cost is $5 per family, and this money is channelled back into the programme. We celebrate the new born, the childrens' birthdays, Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day, Easter and Christmas.


Our aim is to show God's love to young families and to nuture them. For more information about this programme, visit the Mainly Music website at www.mainlymusic.org.au
