Summerkids is coming for January 2019!
SummerKids is a free holiday activity club run through the organisation Scripture Union and Narrabeen Baptist Church. We are a small team of 50 young people and adults from around the Northern Beaches that have a passion for serving the community - specifically kids.
We provide a safe, exciting environment for all kids aged 4-12 to enjoy at Lakeside Park, North Narrabeen, between 8:30am - 1pm each day from 2-4 January 2019. While they are with us they will be involved in lots of fun games, be provided with morning tea and lunch each day, and will hear the good news about Jesus in our very first Mini Olympics! Be sure to put on those runners and tighten them weightlifting belts for this iconic championship event, as we look at what it means to run the race of life with our eyes fixed on Jesus.
Each of our leaders are trained in child safety and have all received Working With Children Checks from the NSW Office of the Children's Guardian. We also have a number of team members with current first aid! We cater for kids of all dietary requirements.
Registration is free and will take place on the morning of each event day at 8:30am. If you have any questions, please contact the NBC Office. We cannot wait to meet you!
Come and enjoy an authentic Sri Lankan feast of curries, sweets and tea... hear about how God is moving in Sri Lanka from our friend Roy Francis... and have the opportunity to donate to the work of their local churches.

NBC is hosting a night to think about the issue of Science vs God.
Has science disproved God? How does a working scientist make sense of the supposed conflict between science and faith?
Join us to hear from Western Sydney University Astrophysicist Dr Luke Barnes and then we’ll open the floor up for a question and answer time.
He will discuss an astronomers view of the natural world, our attempts to understand it, and whether there is anything more than the universe we see.
This will be a different presentation to last year and for those that heard him previously will know it's well worth your time.
Please come with all questions you've ever wrestled through about Christian faith relating to science. It promises to be a great evening for all inquiring minds.
Feel free to invite friends, all are welcome.
For a teaser, here is last years presentation https://vimeo.com/219327431/sciencevsgod

What does it mean to live as a Christian in the sexualised world of today? Can we bring God’s view of gender, relationships and marriage to a world which screams out the message that every desire must be met – whatever the consequences? Patricia looks at what the Bible teaches us about sexuality and relationships, and applies it to life.
Dr. Patricia Weerakoon is a Sexologist and Writer. She trained in medicine in the University of Sri Lanka. She is married to Vasantha and her son Kamal is a Presbyterian minister. Patricia retired in 2011 after a twenty three year career as an academic with the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Sydney.
