Mission

All of us are gifted! Sharing his hope with all is simply about you being you and using your God given gifts to serve others. 

Whether it’s helping in children’s ministry or greeting visitors, serving coffee after service, playing a musical instrument, or going on a mission trip, there are plenty of opportunities to share the hope and love of Jesus with others. If you’re not sure what the best fit for you is, or how you can serve, then contact us and one of the staff will sit down with you and discover what you are passionate about and help you find an area to serve in. Or simply ‘have a go’ and find that ministry that fills you with the greatest joy!

'Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.' 1 Peter 4:10

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love…

The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.' Galations 5:6b,14

Since 2016, LifeWay has partnered with Pastor Khit Vibol in Cambodia. In 2021, at the height of the pandemic, the opportunity came to establish a NGO with Pastor Vibol and form LifeWay Lutheran Cambodia Organisation. Through the generosity of the members at LifeWay, we are supporting Pastor Vibol, Sokry and their family as they live, share and grow together with families in rural, agricultural villages in the Kampong Thom province.

In 2021, we built four wells in four villages to give the locals fresh water instead of the 'coffee' coloured water from the stream some 2km away. We also had the opportunity to share the good news of a God who cares through feeding 150 families struggling through the pandemic.

So far in 2022, we have been given stationary packs to over 100 students so they can go to school. We have established two soccer teams for high school students who hear the Gospel message before each game. We gave Gospel presentations to over 300 students in local villages and have just raised funds to purchase 10 computers to teach important skills to both young people and adults.

We are planning our next mission trip to Cambodia in 2023. If you are interested in joining a future team, please contact the office at [email protected]

Want to be involved in Mission but don't want to leave your local community

Join a Mystery Mission team and serve those within the community who are struggling in their life's journey. How will you serve? It's a mystery ... the project remains a secret until the week before the service project begins.

Our last Mystery Mission involved two teams that shared Jesus’ love through serving families staying at Ronald McDonald House (RMH). Our teams had the task of preparing meals for up to 70 people! These families are living through the ordeal of a very sick little boy or girl in the Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Contact the office if you are interested in being part of a future team.

Each of our centres partner together with local community groups to serve the needs of that particular community.

At LifeWay Epping, we partner with the Ryde Salvation Army and CCA Eastwood. 13.3% of our community live in poverty. This means that some of our friends and neighbours are experiencing hardship and struggle to meet the financial demands of everyday life, including putting food on the table.

CCA Eastwood serves and supports vulnerable community members in need. LifeWay Epping is committed to supporting those in need in our community. Please help CCA to fill their food cupboards with basic food and toiletry items to give to those in need. Bring along your donations and place in the basket in the church foyer. We also serve with the Salvation Army and their Red Shield Appeal and Annual Christmas lunch by providing volunteers who work alongside the Salvos to bring the love of Jesus to the community.

At LifeWay Newcastle, we support the Samaritans Foundations just down the road from the Newcastle Church who provide Emergency relief and support to those in need. We are also currently investigating new partnerships with local welfare groups.

LifeGroups

Is there something missing from your life? Are you looking for a place where you can live vibrantly, share openly and grow together as you develop real relationship with others? Then join a LifeGroup!

God wants us to fly as his people! That’s why he designed the Church with two wings – one to gather together as a large group in corporate worship and one to gather in a smaller personal setting such as a LifeGroup where we can live the faith and grow in the faith as we share life together. When both these wings are flapping, we are blessed to be part of wonderful adventure where we discover the truth of Jesus’ words:

I have come that you may have life and life in its fullness! John 10:10

mainly music

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 $6 for one caregiver & one child. Additional children or adults are an extra $2 each (newborns – 12 months are free).
