GAC offers various ministries for men and women, with the goal of equipping them to grow towards maturity in Jesus, and to share the gospel with others in their community. Our ministries also seek to encourage people in life issues such as marriage, friendship, accountability and service.

Events designed especially for men and women separately provide opportunities to fellowship, grow, and have fun together. Some of these are invitational in style with the chance to invite friends to hear a Christian message in a non-threatening and relaxed environment.

These events include-

Women’s Ministry

  • Regular women’s walks
  • Prayer breakfasts
  • Attendance at the Canberra Women’s Christian Convention
  • Cooking master classes
  • Gingerbread house making
  • Crafty club (see below)

Men’s Ministry

  • SWAT – Service with Attitude – Love! (this group does odd jobs in the homes and gardens of members of the church and wider community)
  • Men’s breakfasts and dinners
  • Attendance at Katoomba Men’s Convention
  • Attendance at Canberra Men’s Christian Convention
  • Men’s coffee club at Gungahlin Lakes club

For upcoming women’s and men’s events, see the what’s on page here, or for the full list for the year see the Church Calendar (available from the Church office or in the ‘members only’ part of the website here). For ministries aimed at younger people, see our youth and kids pages.

Growth Groups

There are several Growth Groups which meet in the homes of church members each week – mostly in Gungahlin but also other parts of Canberra. These small groups provide the opportunity to study the Bible in greater depth, as well as helping people get to know one another in a relaxed, informal environment.

Home Growth Groups provide a wonderful support network as people pray for one another as well as growing in their knowledge of Christ.

Crafty Club

GAC also offers an opportunity to get together with friends or meet new ones and complete a craft.

Crafty Club meets on the last Friday of each month in Harrison.

Each evening we will either complete a set craft or have the evening free for you to bring along an unfinished project of your own (BYO project).

There is a small fee of $10 to cover the cost of the craft kit on the nights where there is an activity planned. There is also a short talk and supper is provided.

Contact the church office for more information.
