Mission

“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

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 please fill in the Need Help? form 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 fit in ministry that fills you with the greatest joy!

Sharing Globally

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.  

GALATIANS 5:6b, 14

At LifeWay, our overseas mission are conducted in partnership with the LCA International Mission (www.lcamission.org.au). Since 2009 we have taken teams of people to work with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Thailand, to support their ministry. We have served among the Lua people in the Nan province in North Eastern Thailand, and more recently, in the slums of Klong Toey in Bangkok, where we have worked in a Women’s Shelter (Home of Grace), a Day Care Centre (Home of Praise), and a Kindergarten that is attached to the Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Our focus has now shifted to Cambodia, at the request of the LCA International Mission Department, where we will partner long term with the Lutheran Church Cambodia.  It’s a young Church that is just beginning and we look forward to a partnership of living, sharing and growing together as God unfolds his plan for them.

Sharing Locally

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea…” 

ACTS 1:8

LifeWay aspires to the mission of building links with, and serving the community so that all people can experience Jesus’ love and hope for themselves. This may be in whatever community we find ourselves, from the local Epping community, through our support of Christian Community Aid at Eastwood, the North Epping Christmas Carols, Clean Up Australia Day or our service to the wider Australian community.
