Lay Family Minister

Rachel Virsu is the Lay Family Minister at St Martin’s and responsible for our playgroup and Messy Church activities.

Playgroup

We have a number of Playgroup sessions each week, as part of our outreach and support to the local community.  These are on Thursdays and Fridays, during school term. There two sessions per day. The first session is from 9:30 am to 11:00 am and the second session is from 11:15 am to 12:45 pm. The cost is $3/child and parents/guardians must be in attendance with their children. Please call the parish office on 0398 273 324 or email us at office@stmartinshawksburn.org.au to enquire about session availability and details.

St Martin’s abides by the Child Safety policy of the Diocese of Melbourne and we do everything we can to make sure that this space is safe for people of all ages, especially children.

Messy Church

Found across the world, Messy Church is a time of fun for all ages, based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

St. Martin’s Messy Church is held on the first Sunday of every month, from 4pm to around 6pm.
