Our Community

Community life is a vital part of our Church. Whether it is discovered in regular long-term groups, within the support of playgroups or as we join to help others, the invisible arms of community carry us along and remind us we are part of something bigger than ourselves.

Information about the various groups which operate within our community is available below.

Friendship Circle

Study Groups

The Friendship Circle is a group of spirited women who arrange interesting speakers (often themselves) and meet on the 3rd Monday of the month at 10:15 am. At Pymble we have short-term studies a few times a year around a theme or book of the Bible. We have studies at Lent and often at other times of the year. We also combine with other local Uniting Church congregations for some study events.

Meeting on the third Sunday of the month at 6 pm in a local home, this group has a variety of ages. A warm and fun group, new singers are always welcome.

Golf Days

Four times a year on a Saturday morning a range of people from the church and beyond enjoy a round of golf.
From hackers to the experienced, our focus is on enjoyment and fellowship.
