Each year we offer a selection of short ‘Grow’ courses offered to deepen your faith as we grow in grace together.
From studying books of the Bible to learning how to pray and read the Bible, discovering tips to share your faith, learning to be a better parent or marriage partner, we hope that there is something to engage and grow you, no matter where you are at on your spiritual walk.
Grow in the grace and knowledge of your Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18
A special service for kids of all ages.
Jesus said, ‘Let the children come’ and they do to worship him at their level. This service is designed for kids of all ages, and uses children’s actions songs, puppets, activities and a message that is targeted just for them. Come and join us. It’s fun, full of chaos and laughter. There is one thing we can tell you for sure…you will leave with a smile on your face!
Kids Church is currently held once a term at both Epping and Newcastle at the 9.30am service.
Term1: 7 April Term 2: 16 June Term 3: 4 August Term 4: 1 December
A fun interactive music session for parents and caregivers to enjoy together with their preschool aged children.
The morning includes a 30 minute music and movement session, where children develop gross and fine motor skills, language and imagination. Then children can socialise with others over morning tea (also for the adults) before play and craft time.
Cost per session is $5 for one caregiver & one child. Additional children or adults are an extra $2 each (newborns – 18 months are free).
Here at LifeWay, we believe that children are a precious gift from God and we’d love to have your family join us as we work together to nurture a life-long faith in the young lives God has entrusted to us.
We believe that the primary place of nurturing children’s faith happens in the home. That’s where we start too, providing tools like the Living Out Loud to help you grow during the week with your children and engage them in faith conversation. The next best place to build a living dynamic faith in our children is through worshipping together across the generations.
- That’s why we don’t mind a little noise or restlessness! We just love having children actively participate in worship.
- When our kids don’t worship with us, they are highly likely to walk away from Christ and his Church once they reach University age (estimates run from 50-90%!).
- If young people are included as important members of the Body of Christ from childhood on, they are more likely to follow Jesus as adults and that is what we want to see here at LifeWay…disciples of all ages living fully, sharing boldly and growing purposefully in the life transforming grace of Jesus.
- What’s more, having kids in worship teaches us as adults what it is like to have child-like faith. Some of their comments during Kids Talk in worship is both profound and priceless.
To enhance what you as parents do we run a 30 minute session on Sundays (during school terms) for Kindergarten through Primary School age children.
At KidsWay, the children have a special time to help them grow in their relationship with Jesus that is designed just for them.
It’s our joy to partner with you in equipping young disciples who are living, sharing and growing!
