Senior’s Ministry

JUNIOR GERIATRICKS

This is a group of Seniors which has been part of the fellowship at Heathmont Baptist Church for more than twenty years. The group meets for social activities approximately every two months. We share in a range of activities which includes:

  • Attending Musical productions by the Nova Theatre Company performed at the Whitehorse Theatre, Nunawading

  • Visiting places of interest such as Gulf Station, Mont De Lancey. This year we plan to visit Coombe Cottage for a  tour of the garden followed by Devonshire afternoon tea

  • Short break get-away holidays, this year to Warrnambool

  • Train trips, using free Seniors Vline rail passes.

  • Various social evenings ie. board games or cards, old time movies, school days reminiscence etc.

  • We have also had missionary speakers and enjoyed singing hymns together.

All Seniors are welcome to join in the fun and fellowship shared among the group.

SENIORS FIRST SUNDAY LUNCH

Since 2011 the Seniors of Heathmont Baptist Church have met together for lunch on the first Sunday of the month (except January). There are usually about 30 of us, venues include Ringwood and Kilsyth Clubs, Sofia’s Family Restaurant, Ringwood R.S.L., Knox Club, Wantirna Hill Club and the Wantirna Club, and a B.Y.O. everything picnic at Lillydale Lake in April.

Those who participate frequently express their appreciation of the opportunity to gather together to share a meal and enjoy fellowship (and someone else will do the dishes!!).

All Seniors are welcome to join us (and even some a bit younger as well). R.S.V.P.’S are necessary.

Blessed Feet Walking Group

We are a group of people who enjoy walking. Each month one of the group plans a walk generally around 10kms in length. Details for the walk are emailed to all walkers. The walks are on a Saturday and are spread over the day and includes taking lunch. Anybody is welcome to join the group.

Information regarding these Seniors activities is regularly available in the monthly ‘Connections’ newsletter.  Alternatively please contact our Ministry Centre on 9738 0455 or office.heathmont@gmail.com
