Our first KKs for 2018! Come along to the Greenhouse at 10am to find out what KKs is about, and to see some highlights from 2017. BYO lunch.

KKs is a fellowship group open to anyone who is free on the second Thursday of each month. If you’re looking for fellowship, outings, a caring group, and just generally getting to know others from KawanaLife better in a more relaxed and carefree manner, come along to KKs. Because it is mainly seniors who are free on a week day the group mainly comprises that age group, but you can be part of KKs no matter what your age is.

We enjoy a whole range of activities – outings, picnics, short walks, venues of interest, etc. KKs event usually involve a BYO morning tea and/or lunch, and a short devotion. Most outings are cost-free.

For more information contact the office, or talk to Del Pattemore.
