History

The Parish of Lockington is situated south west of Echuca, covering an area of 1500 sq km. of mixed farming. The eastern side of the parish, Lockington and Milloo, is mainly dairy farming and to the west, around Mitiamo and Dingee, there is a mix of dairy, cropping and fat lamb production. It is not a heavily populated area, with the largest community, that of Lockington, with about 400 people. The total population across the parish is only about 2,500 people.

Children's Ministry

Sundays at St Mary's

On Sundays at St Mary's, children are free to be themselves, digging into our huge pile of toys while parents relax nearby on our couches for the service. Most Sundays, during the sermon time, children are engaged with Biblical teaching or activities relevant to them.

East-Loddon P-12 Chaplaincy

We are proud supporters of this ministry at East-Loddon, providing committee members, and participating in the breakfast programme.

7ups

"7-Ups" is an ecumenical youth group based at Dingee, catering for young people from school years 7 to 12. We meet every fortnight of the school term on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 5-30 pm in the Uniting Church in Dingee. An evening usually consists of games, worship songs, small group studies and tea. On 5th Sundays we run a different "chill out" evening such as a movie night. We run camps and sleep- over's to foster a sense of community and to provide a longer teaching opportunity.

Our basic premise is to have fun, learn a few life skills and pick up a bit of the "God stuff" as we build community with a bunch of great kids. Our six leaders come from various church backgrounds and have differing but complimentary skills and gifts and at present we have fifteen to twenty young people attending.

For more information please contact Robyn and Col Falls on 54368242 or Sue and Neil Allen on 54365386.

Community Ministry

Pioneer Ministry

The parish of Lockington prayerfully supports the ministry of the Reverend Sue Allen, pioneer minister and chaplain at East-Loddon P-12 School.

Caritas

Caritas is a friendship group for women, meeting on 3rd Monday of the Month, 8pm @ St Mary's Hall. They undertake a variety of activities and hosting guest speakers.

Ecumenism

Every second Sunday of the month St Mary's Lockington shares in worship with UCA Bamawm. The congregations take turns to host.

The Parish has a good working relationship with all denominations in the area, and strives to work with them in a unified public witness to the good news of God in Jesus.
