Please note: We have recommenced gathered worship at Gungahlin UCA though on a different scale and format. Not all groups have recommenced due to the advice provided by the ACT Government and Uniting Church for managing the COVID-19 pandemic. Please refer to the Worship With Us page for current arrangements or contact the Church Office for further information.
We try really hard to be an intergenerational worshipping community, which means we have people of all ages (literally 0 to 93!) worshipping and fellowshipping together.
Young people are a welcome part of our worshipping community, some participating in the music leading, technology, scripture reading and welcoming people.
First Sunday Breakfast
Young People in year 6 and up gather on the 1st Sunday of the month for breakfast with the minister. During this time we spend time catching up, discussing faith, engaging with world events and eating together.
Our young people gather regularly socially for food and fellowship.
We have a mentoring program where we try and connect young people to a leader/mentor who can act as a guide and friend.
Link: What is a mentor?
Young people are invited to meet with their mentor on the 4th Sunday of the month during the second half of worship. Mentor time is flexible and arranged in consultation with parents/guardians. Some mentors have walked together to a cafe for a conversation with their young people, others stay on site and share in conversation, game, prayer.
Finding a mentor can take some time, we invite the young people and families to get to know people within the community and build relationships. If you/your child would like to be linked with a mentor please speak with our minister, Darren Wright.
