“When you’re 20 you care what everyone thinks, when you’re 40 you stop caring what everyone thinks, when you’re 60 you realise no one was ever thinking about you in the first place.”
50 Plus is a group designed for people for whom this is true (no matter what your age) - a group who meet and share ideas, where you can be yourself, bring your friends along and get to know others in a friendly informal setting.
Now in its 4th year and still going strong, 50 plus meets from 10 - 12 on the third Tuesday of every month in the ministry centre at St Johns.
There are engaging speakers like Tom Tresseder who was instrumental in helping to design the first solar powered audio bible which is now available to millions around the world.
Or we have the very entertaining Bruce Shying speaking to us on not so well known Sydney Harbour history.
In March we are going to North Head for a picnic. Other activities include quizzes, a music recital or even games, but there is always morning tea with a cuppa and a chance to catch up with friends or to make new ones.
It is a very easy group to join and be part of.
I would commend it to those members of CCIW who are 50+ (or really anyone who is past caring what other people think) both for themselves and as a way of bringing your friends into the church community.
If this group is not for you then perhaps you could consider supporting by praying as we meet and seek to care for one another and reach out as Gods people to the community around us.
