For: Local community
When: Annually – March/April
Our annual Autumn Fair is a time when we invite our local community onto our church site to enjoy freshly baked goods, home grown and nurtured plants, loads of second hand books and all sorts of treasure! We usually have 2nd Hand Books, Clothes & Toys along with Plants, Games and Rides for the kids, wonderful home-baked goods and much much more.
As a congregation we are intentional about our school’s ministry. This includes providing:
KidsHope Aus mentors in The Gap State School (TGSS);
Supporting the local chaplaincy program financially via Donate Now – SU QLD (You can assign your gift to a specific school or to The Gap District Chaplaincy to support the areas most in need across our suburb);
being involved in Religious Instruction (RI) in Primary Schools in The Gap.
The Ministry Team and also volunteers from the congregation work at The Gap State School and also Payne Rd State School to help deliver approved CRI curriculum in the local schools. A highlight of the year is also the whole of school service that TGSS attend at Easter and Christmas at our church.
The Gap Uniting Church runs a range of activities and events which behind the scenes require a considerable amount of work and resources.
Sponsorship provides local businesses the opportunity to show their commitment to The Gap and surrounding suburbs residents, as well as raising awareness of their business generally. There are various levels of sponsorship and advertising opportunities available.
