Your Local Church
In 2009, Reverend Peter Wood and his young family built and moved into Ropes Crossing to start Ropes Crossing Church. Two years later in 2011 Ropes Crossing Church opened. Now Ropes Crossing Church comprises of about 70 local people of all ages, stages, cultural and spiritual backgrounds, with people continuing to join as they grow. Their aim is to make a positive contribution to this amazing community of which we are a part.
On Sundays they meet at 10:30am at Ropes Crossing Public School, with crèche each week for under school age children and Kids Church each fortnight for Kindergarten-Year 2 and Years 3-6 children at the Hub. They run weekly Christian Scripture for students at Ropes Crossing Public School, ‘YaRC’ for Years 7-12 youth on Fridays from 7:00pm-9:00pm at the Hub and small groups for adults at various times and locations. Fortnightly they run a Mobile Pantry on Tuesdays from 1:30pm-2:30pm at the Hub, providing subsidized groceries to people with a health care, pension or immigration card.
Each year they run music evenings on the Village Green. In February it’s ‘Summer Sounds’, in November it’s ‘blu Ropes’ and in December it’s ‘Ropes Crossing Carols by Candlelight’. They also run ‘4 FAMILIES’ (school holiday program) for preschool-Year 6 children at the Hub on Tuesday-Friday from 2-5 October. There are events for men or women. The next one is a ‘Ladies Jewellery Afternoon’ on Saturday 28 July from 2:00pm-5:00pm at the Hub where ladies can meet over afternoon tea, hear some of Margaret’s wedding story and make a set of earrings and a necklace for $30.
They warmly invite anyone to visit them on Sundays or at any of their other activities. Contact them for more information on 0431 371692, www.ropescrossingchurch.anglican.asn.au or www.facebook.com/RopesCrossingChurch.
