What We Do (on the other side of Covid-19)
At Carey, we think of discipleship as learning to follow Jesus in every area of our lives. One way to grow in this journey is in small communities together. These “groups” take different forms across our congregations. Some of our groups are ongoing, some run for a fixed period and are based on certain curricula or course. Some have a focus on life stage for participants (for example our “POD”s for Youth and Young Adults).

Carey is establishing a Fathering Project group at Forrestdale in 2020, giving Dads a boost in their fathering role. Throughout the year events such as picnics, camps, hikes etc will be promoted in the local community.
The Fathering Project is a University of Western Australia-based non-profit team of professionals whose aim is to help fathers realise how important they are in a child’s life and to give them advice on how to encourage their children. More information can be found at the Fathering Project website.
Their work is also aimed at father figures such as grandfathers, stepfathers, uncles, mentors, youth leaders, teachers, pastors and coaches, knowing that many children do not have much father contact at all.
This work was triggered by statistics that show that:
Whilst mothers are usually involved in children’s lives, education and health matters, many fathers are not as involved as they could be.
This father-absence has a major impact on education (e.g. on attitude to school, truancy and bullying), health (more drug addiction, depression, cigarette smoking) and crime.
The cost of this problem to the Australian community is estimated to be over $12 billion per year, so this intervention could save many millions of dollars each year.

Men's Fishing Trip
The annual Fishing Trip takes place in April, following the Salmon Run in Yealgarup with a weekend of four-wheel driving, salmon fishing, camping and eating. The campers head down on a Friday afternoon and return on the following Sunday. There are no toilets, electricity or tap water, however, there is a freshwater river nearby.
If you’re interested in this off-the grid-style weekend, please register your interest below and we’ll be in contact with you in the lead up to the trip with more information and a ‘what to bring’ list.
