Hi Grainery Family, we hope you are well!
We know some of you are working harder than ever as we all adapt to the current restrictions: some people as essential workers are out there every day, others juggling zoom calls and at-home child care – and some experiencing little to no change at all! Whatever your situation we’re thinking of you and praying that God would be a source of hope, peace and joy in this time as we face another week of lockdown in the Hunter.
We’re looking forward to joining together again this weekend for our 4 online services at 8:30am, 10:30am, 4pm & 6pm as we begin a new Challenge ‘Extend Grace’!
We highly recommend you connect via grainery.church.online for a greater level of interaction with each other through the chat and other functions on that site. If you can’t make those times you can still join church online via the Grainery Church Youtube, and special Grainery Kids episodes will be available via the Grainery Kids Youtube channel.
If you or someone you know is finding this time difficult and would like some extra support, or would just appreciate a chat on the phone, let us know by clicking below and one of our pastoral team will respond.
“But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength;
Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For You have been my stronghold
And a refuge in the day of my distress.”

Due to the recent COVID-19 cases in our region, and in line with current government restrictions: the Grainery Kids Team have made the difficult decision to postpone our 80’s Party event which was to be held this Saturday August 14.
We anticipate an even bigger and better event when it does happen, and are committed to providing a COVID-safe environment for all our activities. We will be moving the 80’s Party to another date which we’ll communicate once it’s confirmed.
Our amazing Kids’ leaders are working hard this week to bring a little extra fun to your children’s online experience this coming Sunday. Go ahead and check out our Grainery Kids YouTube channel at any time.
We would love to see pictures or videos of your kids engaging with Kids’ Church Online. Our prayers are with you all during this time, and please reach out and let us know if there’s anything you would like some extra prayer for.

Hi Grainery Family,
Thinking of you all at this time… and we wanted to update you with the following information ahead of this weekend.
In line with current state government restrictions for Newcastle and the Upper Hunter: all Grainery Church in-person gatherings will be held online for the next 7 days, or postponed if an online option isn’t available.
As a church it’s important that we continue to be community by reaching out to those around us, and connecting in times of uncertainty. Our pastoral team would love to support or connect with you, particularly if you are having difficulties in the coming days… contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a direct message @thegrainerychurch
Join us at one of our online services this Sunday at 8:30am, 10:30am, 4pm or 6pm – or anytime on Sunday on the Grainery YouTube channel. Don’t forget our wonderful Grainery Kids content also available online through the Grainery Kids YouTube channel.
Ps Stu Brown.
