Walk and Wonder
Featuring local Lane Cove bush walks of approximately 1.5 hours, easy to moderate grade. We walk on the third Sunday afternoon of the month.
Our groups are intergenerational and multicultural. Many of our walkers are 50+ but we also have younger adults and families join us and find the children engage very well. We enjoy discussion over shared snacks mid-way. The only cost is contributing a snack to the common 'table'.
Small groups who share over lunch or dinner helping each other explore what it means to be a disciple of Jesus today. An open, confidential, non-judgmental environment in which to share what is relevant to our lives today.
Hugh Mackay Book Club
We are discussing Hugh's latest book: Australia Reimagined. Towards a more compassionate, less anxious society over wine and cheese. We hope to solve some of Australia's problems - at least in our own little corner!

Inspiring Guest Speaker Dr. Michelle Lim visited Lane Cove on 29 May 2018. Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Lim, is a leading researcher into loneliness, which has reached epidemic proportions in Australia and much of the world.
