9am and 6pm Sunday @ Austinmer | 9:30am and 7pm Sunday @ Thirroul
We are committed to reaching out to our local community with the good news of the gospel in a variety of ways. Here are some of them….
Every January we hold our night church service down at Austinmer SLSC. We intentionally seek to make church as relaxed, clear and accessible as possible to the average un-churched Aussie. We have a BBQ on the grass beforehand, supper outside after, live music, annual Sandcastle Competition, a great Kids Church Summer programme, and this year held a local short films night under the stars.
Each year we aim to hold large and small scale events to connect with in the wider community and share the message of Jesus in fresh and creative ways. “Crazy Busy” held at The Beans Talk Café, A Few of Our Favourite things High Tea, “Hungry For Justice” dinner are just some….. Women also meet in small groups for bible study and attend conferences together.
The men meet in a variety of ways to explore the gospel message and encourage men to live for God. In the past they have held “Meat” “Timber” and “Rescue” with men in various fields telling their faith story. Men hold “Boot Camp” each year – a series over 4 weeks on “Growing in relationship with God and with each other” -gathering men of all ages across 4 local churches. And “Wild at Heart” a men and boys camping weekend away.
Each year we aim to run an event that creates opportunity to invite friends who don’t know Jesus to hear more about the gospel. “Open House” with Leigh Hatcher (broadcaster and journalist) interviewed about Work, Life & Faith was one such event with supper, drinks & live music at Austinmer SLSC.
Our annual Gingerbread nights continue to be very popular and are a great way to share the good news of Jesus at Christmas. We hold a kids and parents night as well as a separate event for adults. Last year we held “Gingerbread at Home” for the first time – groups of women meeting in homes and discussing “What Christmas means to me” as they decorate their gingerbread houses.
Continues to be a popular way to mark Christmas with our community outdoors under the stars (if the weather allows) and hear the message of Jesus at Christmas.
