Bouncing back to happiness in this new church space
IT WAS one fine day at St. Andrew Gardiner Uniting Church, Glen Iris when we had our School Holiday program for the first time in the new church. As part of our mission to reach out to the community and share the blessings to others, we invited primary schools and kindergartens in the area, the local dance club, people of the Stonnington community, local newspaper readers and others who may benefit from the program.
The theme was I Can Bounce Back as we want to introduce kids in our community to the idea of building resilience into their character. We had 55 kids registering for the program and ready to bounce together.
