hand in hand logoSt Petri co-runs a centre for the care and well-being of families in our local community. Through the Hand in Hand Family Centre, there are opportunities for parents of younger children, older primary school aged children and teenage children to participate in various helpful groups such as “Parenting Toolbox” for those parenting pre-school, primary or teenage children, “Fruit Salad”, for families with children who have or are experiencing separation and/or divorce and the like.

These run as demand requires throughout the year. Creches and Come and Play groups happen weekly. Free to Write is a group for women who want to express their creative side.

Bible Journaling is a group for women to explore their spirituality.

It is always worth calling the centre to find out details of the many opportunities on offer.
