Youth and Family Ministry

Lay Family Minister

The position of Lay Family Minister is currently vacant at St Martin’s. We are currently undergoing a period of discernment as we seek someone new for this role. As such, the past ministries of playgroup and Messy Church are currently resting as we find someone who will bring enthusiasm and vision for ministry with children and family’s in our local area. We hope that these ministries will recommence as soon as possible. Please see this webpage for further updates.

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.

Playgroup

Until the end of 2019, we have had a number of playgroup sessions each week, as part of our outreach and support to the local community.  These were on Thursdays and Fridays, during school term. There were two sessions per day. The first session was from 9:30 am to 11:00 am and the second session was from 11:15 am to 12:45 pm. The cost was $5/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.

As stated above, these sessions have currently stopped for the moment. We do hope that they will recommence soon.

Child Safety

St Martin’s abides by the Child Safe and Code of Conduct 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.
