AMOS - A Mob Over Sixty
AMOS is a short for A Mob over sixty, although some younger attend too! We get involved in many different activities, sometimes with themes and various locations.
Our purpose is to enjoy a sense of community and have fun. AMOS usually meets on the last Saturday of the month from 2.00 pm – 4.30 pm. We gather in the church hall, or sometimes at someone’s home, or an outing all followed by a delicious Afternoon Tea.
Our gatherings cater for all levels of fitness and mobility. Our oldest member reached over 100 years! Past outings have included Wittunga Botanic Gardens, Virginia Nursery, The Menz FruChocs Shop, Beaumont House, Melba’s Chocolates, Warrawong Sanctuary and Lawn bowls. We also take opportunities to hear visiting speakers including visiting missionaries from Brazil, Turkey, Zambia and Ethiopia.
Activities have included celebrating big “0” birthdays, Olympic Games, Chinese New Year, Royal Weddings, ANZAC Day, Christmas, etc. We often run with themes such as Minute to Win It, Pizza making, Collector’s Day, Model Trains, Indian culture and cooking, Favourite Bookmark, Back to Primary School, Games Afternoon and sharing a Letter we treasure are all examples.
If you are interested in joining this select group of individuals for wonderful escapades, fun and community, keep the afternoons of the last Saturday of the month free. Feel free to check our Church Calendar for AMOS event information.
