Dig In At Home

Christmas - All Are Welcome

Christmas has arrived! A time when people of all ages, all around the world stop to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

This week, you might like to take the time to read some books, watch some videos, or go to Church to learn more about Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is that he invites everyone to follow him.

Advent week 4 - Joy Now and Forever

Christmas is getting closer! Everywhere we go we see Christmas. We hear Christmas. We smell Christmas. We might even feel Christmas. What have you been noticing? What brings you joy?

This week, we encourage you to take some time to think about your Christmas traditions. What Christmas traditions have been passed down to you? What new traditions have you started in recent years? Are there any new traditions that you’d like to start this year? As you feel surrounded by Christmas, we pray that you may experience joy – not just moments of joy but a long-lasting joy.

Full resources are in the PDF attached, or available in print from Emmanuel Uniting Church


Advent week 3 - Love in Action

There are so many wonderful activities and events that people can participate in during the Christmas season – light shows, parades, concerts, carols, face painting, dinners, and MORE. It’s easy to get caught up in doing things, that we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves, OR love others.

This week we encourage you to LOVE all that Christmas offers and think about how you can actively LOVE yourself and others, during this time.

Our leaders provide a range of varying experiences to help children draw closer to God through music, bible teaching, prayer, games, and creative activities. All our leaders are screened and trained and will love your kids almost as much as you do.

All children aged 3 - 12 are welcome and meet as one group in the Church Hall. A range of activities including games, craft, challenges, and small group time are provided to enhance age- and developmental- appropriate learning and connection for all.

Children will start each service in the church auditorium with the congregation for songs, prayers, videos, communion, and announcements and will move to the hall with their leaders when advised. In 2023 we will continue to follow the same readings and themes as Sunday Worship, learning more about the heart of God, and how to follow him.

To enhance child learning and discipleship, weekly Dig In @ Home materials are available at, and we encourage you to connect with and talk about life and faith with your children during the week.

We look forward to "digging in' and connecting with your family soon.

We are also still encouraging households to continue with Faith at Home practices whether they attend weekly Worship and Sunday School or not. Dig in at Home resources that match and complement worship and Sunday School are available at

Each Explore Group is unique. Each group will have a time of bible study and discussion, where the passage being studied is understood and applied in our contemporary setting. In addition there will be a time of prayer. There may also be times of sharing and eating. Each Explore Group works out together how they will spend their time.
