Our Friday Fun Connections is once a month for our families. Our aim is to build stronger relationships in families and stronger connections with the community by doing purposeful projects.
The theme changes each month where we work with non for profit organization's to support communities. Most of the projects are connections Gordon-Pymble Uniting Church have built over many years.
All are welcome, whether you be single, have a family or want to make a difference. The majority of the families have children in year 5 to year 8 in primary and high school.
Come join us for fun evenings from 6.30pm for pizza, games and group activities. We also provide parenting topics each quarter which can include technology, transitioning into High School through to family responsibilities. All very topical.
Some of the projects in 2023:
- Playdough making for preschoolers

"A sincere thank you to the Families of Friday Fun Connections for the thoughtful and generous gifts presented this morning to Lindara volunteers at the GPUC service held at Pymble uniting church. I shall ensure the gifts reach the volunteers and I am sure the volunteers will be surprised and delighted.
How wonderful it is for you all to be thinking of and recognising the contributions made by volunteers who work towards the well-being of families needing help in our community. God Bless!"
Philip Crawford, Lindara Chair
