English conversation classes are held each Monday morning during the school term from 10am to 12 noon. Leaders have been especially trained to help people learn and become more confident in their use of the English language. Activities are varied and are fun as well! You will enjoy the morning, and get to know others as well.
Christian Community Aid

Act for Peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia. The Uniting Church is an active member. Through the Christmas Bowl, Act for Peace supports programs offering hope and a future to communities in Burma, South Sudan, Iraq, Gaza, Pakistan and other counties who are impacted by violence, war and poverty. Every Christmas West Epping contributes to the Christmas Bowl by encouraging everyone to make a financial contribution equivalent to the cost of having one extra guest at their dinner table on Christmas Day.
Operation Christmas Child
Each year West Epping members support this project by lovingly filling a shoe box with useful gifts at Christmas for needy children living in poverty stricken circumstances.
