Life Streams

Below you can find out a bit about your Life Stream, although our communities aren't limited to these areas. These particular areas have a vision and a ministry behind them, but there is some cross-over. Everyone in our church is encouraged to join a Life Group, whether within their Life Stream, or with those in other walks of life. Here is a bit more about the four Life Streams we are investing in with our 2020 vision. We are also commited to generously investing in the vulnerable and disadvantaged within our community.

Families  Youth 283 Young Adults 282
This stream engages in family socials; links to schools; babies and toddlers group JIGSAW;  Friday Drench Youth Café; Sunday groups, crèche, JIMS, BAM, Thanksgiving and Baptisms and more! A community connected to our church/living locally. This stream is for those aged 18 to 30s. It tends to includes students, young couples, young professionals and local residents. They run regular Life Groups, have socials, are passionate about discipleship and community and are very involved in Sunday serving teams.
next generation 282 Retirees
This stream is for those perhaps in their 40s & 50s, and often have adult children. It is a community about investing what they have in others, as well as pursuing all that God has for them right now! This stream is made up of Life Groups with seasonal socials. This stream's main ministry area is Open Doors, which runs on Monday afternoons. It is a space to build friendships, play games and quizzes, have meals together, go on outings and have visiting speakers. They are also very involved in our Wednesday Communion Services.

Life Groups

Life Groups are a smallish (6–12) group of people from church who are sharing lives and walking alongside one another in their walk with Jesus. They're for anyone over the age of 16 and they meet in church member's homes weekly or bi-weekly to share food, pray, discuss the bible, develop great friendships and support each other in prayer. 
We have Life Groups for every stage of life and all you have to do to join is talk to us. We can put you in touch with a Life Group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group. We encourage everyone in the church to be part of a Life Group, since they are such an important support system and a great way of finding your place in the church.
