A number of Home Groups run in our Church each week.

This runs in conjunction with the Spring Festival held annually in Laidley on the second weekend of September. Hundreds of visitors are expected to attend each day. A large amount of beautiful Quilts, Crafts and Fine Arts will be on display with lots of items for sale, in the Hall and grounds.
There will be displays to interest the men as well, including old tractors, cars and machinery displays.

Laidley Second Chance Op Shop
The Op Shop is operated by the Laidley Uniting Church and is manned by a group of friendly volunteers. Our wonderful Manager is Tracey Broad who joined us at the beginning of 2018. There are also other Day Managers during each day of the week – Monday morning – Saturday midday. The Shop stock is continually updated, and many people appreciate the décor, as well as the good range, prices and service.
Tracey has been working hard with the volunteers and trying out new things in the shop. Come and visit and see our new look.
Stock is sourced from donations from the community, usually through 2 bins in the local IGA carpark and one at the rear of the shop, plus drop-offs during operations. Items are sorted and made ready by the volunteers each day. They shop is blessed to have a wonderful bunch of volunteers. Other times we pick up from homes who want to donate their furniture or unwanted items to the Shop. We can also deliver items for those big items for a small charge.
The continued donations of items is very appreciated and help the shop to fulfil its mission, in raising funds to help the needy as well as supporting certain Church activities in the community.
Profits from sales support the church but also help a number of groups, including Laidley Crisis Care & Accommodation and School Chaplaincy in the Laidley School Cluster area.
Men’s Catch ups
Men gather for a social get together at 10.00am at Café Sorrella at Forest Hill on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. This is a time where they can chat and catch up and solve the world’s problems.
This Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month, and on the 5th Tuesday in a month, at 9.00am in the Laidley Church Hall. All are welcome who may be interested in learning a craft or just meeting with other like minded craft people. $3 covers morning tea and a contribution to the morning
Sunday School – YAKS
Every Sunday morning, except School holidays, the Laidley Church has activities for primary and pre-school children during the Church Services. The children attend church with the parent/s to begin with, and after a short time they have their own program in the Hall. Our program is called YAKS (Youth and Kids Sunday).
There are a number of Home Groups or Bible Study groups connected to the church. These usually meet weekly in various homes of church members. Contact the Church Office for more details.
