Seniors out somewhere (SOS)

SOS was formed in 2017 to fill a need to have organised activities for the senior members of our congregation. We welcome anyone who is retired, unemployed or just has a day off to come and join in these activities. They take place bi-monthly usually on the last Thursday & sometimes on a Wednesday. We organise transport for those who need it and usually car pool. This activity is also an outreach to friends and neighbours.

FOR THE FIRST OUTING in 2021 SOS are going on the Noosa River Ferry Cruise and visiting a local art gallery. This adventure will take place on Thursday 25th February.

THE SECOND SOS OUTING is a walk through history on the Buderim/Palmwoods Heritage Tramway followed by lunch at Buderim Tavern. This adventure will take place on Thursday 29th April.

THE SOS OUTING in June is morning tea at McMartins Strawberry Farm at Bli Bli with optional strawberry picking and Wetlands walk. Afterwards there is a sausage sizzle at Bli Bli Park. This adventure will take place on Thursday 24th.

THE AUGUST SOS OUTING adventure is on Thursday 26th at Q Camel Farm.

JOIN US IN OCTOBER: Limited numbers, so get in early for our visit to the “Twinnies” Pelican and Seabird Rescue at Landsborough on Thursday 28th.

This Ministry began in 2005. The Church was participating in “40 Days of Purpose” and two ladies (Kate Burdorf and Joy Thompson) realised that by using their favourite hobby they could reach out to other women in the community and quietly spread God’s message. It started as a small group of 6-8 women from the church, plus friends. The group grew as others responded to the advertisements in the local papers and businesses, and as enthusiasm grew it met weekly rather than fortnightly. Coolum Beach Quilters meets every Thursday 9am-noon in the church hall. $2 each week, with tea and coffee provided. Lots of chatting, always learning.
