One of the key parts of our church community is our time togther outside of worship. Like many United Churches, we often come together over food, picnics, social gatherings, and other events that serve to augment and strengthen our worship times.
We host a "soup and sandwich" lunch on the last Sunday of the month after the worship service, from September to May.
We have many sub-groups active within our congregation:
- The KNITTING GROUP that meets weekly. We are a supportive community of people who love to craft items. We knit, crochet and quilt items to sell or give away. We have made items for Healthy Babies, the Care-a-Van, and prayer shawls for those in need or as gifts. In February, we had fun wrapping the front posts in yarn "graffiti", to welcome Wayne and Carol Hughes and to celebrate the Have a Hearts production! We WELCOME all. If you just need a place to chat, come and join us. We would also be eager to help anyone keen to learn how to knit or crochet. See the events weekly calendar on the events page for information on meeting times.
The Super Singles is for single people at Comox United Church to share a Potluck supper together once a month. We enjoy rousing conversations and are also supportive of each other on our individual life journeys. We meet the 2nd Friday of the month in each other's homes. In the summer we may have a picnic in the park, or enjoy other outings. For more information, please contact Ruth Gibson at [email protected] .
The Walking Group meets on the last Sunday of the month for a walk of about an hour. The group has explored a variety of trails throughout the Comox Valley and always welcomes new walkers. Check the "Events" tab for information on current walks.
