Groups at the Commons

The Commons, by its very nature, is made up of a variety of folk who come together in the Commons’ space. Without them, without you, the Commons is nothing. Some groups come together in a somewhat more formal nature and are open for you to come and be a part of. These groups include:

Just Dance

A free-movement, loosely facilitated dance session. Loosen up, let go and have some fun times.

Just come and just dance!

Head to the Just Dance facebook group for more information.

Newcastle Personal Development Group

This group brings like-minded people together so that we can be inspired, learn, share ideas and lessons we have experienced. The events provide an opportunity to share the latest ideas on personal development and catchy techniques to take home and play with.

The Newcastle Personal Development Group meets on the last Saturday of the month 10.30am-12noon.

With Miss Kate Cheese Making Class

The fabulous Miss Kate hosts regular 2 hour cheese making classes, including ricotta, paneer, mascarpone, quark, cream cheese, labna and more. As time goes by and people’s skills increase, she can also begin teaching more complex cheeses such as fetta, halloumi and mozzarella.

Faith@The Commons

Faith@The Commons was an umbrella program for a number of faith and spirituality based events happening at The Commons Cafe.  In the past, there was a Sunday afternoon gathering, which was a time to explore an aspect of faith or spirituality in an emerging church setting.
