Hi Everyone

We will be in the Uni Bar tomorrow (Tuesday) from 4 till 5pm.

Come, hang out and relax

All Welcome!


This week is Diversity Week at UOW.

We decided to set up a game involving chocolate sampling, with 7 delicious varieties of fairtrade chocolate to taste. Participants simply had to guess the flavour of the chocolate.

The fairtrade chocolate had ingredients from Bolivia, Peru, Paraguay, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Belize and Italy. This surprised many of the participants.

Such was the success of this game, it ended early after all the chocolate had been consumed!

With Easter coming soon, is time to find some fairtrade chocolate Easter eggs

For more information about fairtrade check out:

UnitingSpiritually will be having a stronger on-campus presence this semester, and hopefully this year.

Last week marked the beginning of our new discussion group & hang out sessions @ UniBar from 4-5pm. This, like most of our activities, involves eating, perhaps a beer or two, and discussion lead by a different person each week. The topics will often be biblically based or taken from current affairs/ newspaper articles… or can be random topics that the leader wants to explore in a chilled out group setting.

So if this sounds like your thing, come along to the UniBar on tuesday afternoons…

Our thursday dinners are continuing of course – if you’re not on the e-group and you want to receive information about this, email

This week is also Diversity Week at UOW and on thursday we’ll be on McKinnon lawn from 12:30-1:30 to celebrate! We’ll be celebrating by inviting students to take a fair trade chocolate tasting test (blindfolded) where they need to guess the country of origin of the delicious chocolate… mmmmm.

Also coming up in Week 6 will be our Easter Event where we’ll have a labyrinth on the McKinnon Lawn on tuesday, wednesday and thursday. More info on that to come…

We hung out, ate chocolate, met people, watched a giant dog running around, went on a jumping castle with a velcro wall in velcro jumpsuits, ate some more chocolate and had some good conversations. Thanks to those of you who came up and had a chat and signed up to our e-group, we hope to see you at various up coming US events.

Here are a few pictures from O-Week clubs day…
