Dear LifeWay family,
UPDATE: July 24, 2020
Words can’t express how much we’ve missed gathering together over the past few months. And while it’s been wonderful to watch us come together to support one another and keep connected, we’re excited to announce that we can do some of that in person soon.
That’s right—our church leadership has decided to reopen our building for services on August 2nd, 2020
We have prayerfully considered the right time to reopen and asked God for the wisdom to do it safely. We’ll continue to lean on him and on each other as we remain patient and work together to follow social distancing guidelines upon reopening.
Our service at Epping will be at 9.30am as usual, but we are also introducing a new service at 5pm, while at Newcastle it will be at 9.30am. There will be a few things that will be different. Here are the quick facts:
Choose the safest worship experience for you. If you’re high-risk, we encourage you to continue attending online and staying in touch with our community through our zoom chat after each service.
Please remember that reopening and staying open is a team effort.
Whether you join us online or in person, we love you and we look forward to seeing you soon,
Pastor Mark, Pastor Mat and Adam Brownett
on behalf of the Leadership Team

Can you give the Gift of Opportunity this Christmas? An opportunity to learn English. An opportunity to learn computer skills. An opportunity to encounter Jesus who transforms lives and opens up a world of new opportunities?
The target is $7000 to buy chairs, tables, a whiteboard, 10 Computers and Bibles to give the children in the village new opportunites for learning, new skills for life and a new hope and future in Christ.
It’s the starting point for planting a new Church community in Cambodia. Any additional money raised will go to support our sponsoring of this new Church Planting venture in the Kampong Thom province.
Donations can be made through our App or Website under the GIVE section, or through the office in an envelope marked ‘The Gift of Opportunity.’
North Epping Carols has been bringing the hope of Christmas to the community for over 10 years
Thanks to COVID-19, we can’t have our usual 2000+ people gather for carols in a public place. Yet it’s more important than ever this year, to celebrate the spirit of Christmas as a community.
This year, we’ve thought of a new way to bring everyone together!
Instead of gathering at Epping Oval, invite your family, friends and neighbours to your home for a CAROLS WATCH PARTY!
Register as a host by Friday 4th December 2020 and you will receive a FREE HOST KIT and automatically be in the lucky draw to WIN 1 of 6 Christmas food hampers!
