Sunday Church

We have two Sunday services every week! At 8:30am we gather in the Emmanuel Church to enjoy a more traditional service. At 10am we gather in both the Auditorium and the Emmanuel Church for a service that's popular with all ages, especially families with kids.

​Both services include singing, praying, Bible talks, and regular Lord's Suppers. During COVID-19, we are also live-streaming our 10am Church Service each Sunday.

Kids Church

Children are precious, and they get their own special program at 10am Church! Kids sit with the adults for the first part of the service, then before the Sermon head out to the Kids Hall for a time of Bible stories, fun craft, and games. (If your child would rather stay with you in the church service, that's fine too!)

Parents with babies are welcome to use our Parents Room facilities for privacy and a quiet space if needed. We value the safety and wellbeing of all children at our church, and our Kids Church Leaders and Teachers are trained in Safe Ministry practices.

Bible Study Groups

We've got Bible Study Groups meeting at different times throughout the week, where people get together to go in-depth reading the Bible and also pray for what's going on in each others lives. It's a great way to build friendships and to know Jesus better! Groups are always open to new members.

    School Scripture Classes

    We love getting to teach SRE ('Scripture') at both Lawson Public School and Hazelbrook Public School. Lots of parents in our area are keen for their children to know something about Jesus while they are at school, and its our privilege to be able to take these lessons. Our volunteer teachers are all well trained and well supported so that they can do a great job.

    Funerals

    We are honoured to be asked by families to take a loved one’s funeral. It is our privilege to be able to walk with you and support you in a time of great sadness and grief.  To avoid disappointment, please be in touch with us as soon as possible, so that we can form a plan with you that will suit everybody involved.

    During COVID we are also live-streaming funerals, to allow for interstate mourners to attend online.

    Weddings

    Getting married is a big, wonderful, meaning-filled thing! We love having Weddings at our church, and also preparing couples for a lifetime spent together.
