Congregational Activities

Study and Share

Every Tuesday in the 'Braun Study Centre' from 10.00am - 11.00am (except the first Tuesday in the month and school holidays), our 'Study and Share' group meets to study the Holy Bible.

Women's Guild

The Women's Guild meets monthly for study and guest speaker programs. It is a very loyal and active group and regularly attracts attendees from neighbouring congregations.

‘Over 60s’

The ‘Over 60s’ group meets monthly in the afternoon for lunch, games and a devotion. Attendance varies from about 25 to over 50. This is a growing ministry program reaching out to those inside and outside the congregation, and our St Paul’s Lutheran Homes aged care community.

Youth

There is an active Youth Program currently in place for say 13 to 25 year olds. There are about 15 members of our youth group, led by the congregation’s Youth Group Coordinator. The group has regular monthly meetings, and supports the Adelaide Hill’s Zone’s ‘Hills Connect’ monthly Sunday evening worship program. There is regular interaction with other youth groups such as from Strathalbyn congregation and the ‘Salem’ congregation near Callington, in fellowship activities that see 25 or more young people in attendance.  

Kidz Club

A Kids Club for 8 to 12 year olds meets once a month  from 4.30pm - 5.30pm in St Paul's Church Hall, with the attending children generally coming from outside the existing congregational membership. Attendances vary from 5 to 10 depending on the scheduled activity.

Veggie Tales

This monthly child ministry is aimed at 3-8 year olds, but younger children are welcome. It is held during school term time generally on the 4th Friday from 4.30pm - 5.30pm in St Paul’s Church Hall. Parents are encouraged to stay, chat and enjoy coffee with other parents.

 

Elderly

While our Gospel mission is to all the family of God, here at St Paul’s we have developed a special ministry to the elderly through St Paul’s Lutheran Homes which includes facilities in 4 locations at Hahndorf for approximately 60 independent living residents in addition to a 60 bed residential aged care facility for those needing a higher level of care, and we encourage all our members, from the youngest to the oldest, to share in the joy of caring for the elderly. 

Overseas

St Paul's congregation in conjunction with its sister congregation Redeemer Lutheran Church in nearby Nairne, has established its 'Reach Out to PNG' ministry program, which through the financial support of several Adelaide Hills Lutheran congregations, has facilitated repairs to evangelism training infrastructure at Heldsbach in  Finschhafen in Papua New Guinea (PNG). This is a very beautiful but isolated place, with no roads connecting it to the rest of PNG. In addition assistance has been provided to establish a children's early learning centre, and preschool facility. 
It will continue to be our congregation's mission to show Christian love and encourage the people of Heldsbach in their Christian faith.
