Ministries

God never intended for you to "go it alone."

He has invited you to be a part of His family, and we hope that you have accepted that invitation. If you haven't done so yet, then asks us about it. You will be glad you did!

As a family we do things for each other and with each other. Happiness from the heart and fulfilment in life is best found in a place of mutual care and respect.

We have not yet "arrived," but together we are working towards that goal.

Scroll down through the sections below that describe the ministries of our church. You will find that there is a place for you!

 

Church Services

Sunday mornings at 10.00 AM we have our regular worship services.

The service has a informal style with a variety of contemporary choruses and classic hymns. A worship team including a contemporary band with a moderate sound leads the worship.

Preaching of the Word of God is the highlight of the service. You can expect the Bible to be unfolded before you, made understandable and practical.

 

Children's Church "K4J"

Everyone is together for the main part of the music/worship portion, then the children up to year 4 are dismissed for the remainder of the time. A special Children's Church program is provided for them in the fellowship hall downstairs during that time. It's an exciting time with singing, stories, relevant Bible teaching and purposeful games.

Children's Safety

The safety of your children is of utmost importance. We have a very detailed and carefully thought out Child Protection Policy. Click here to see it for yourself. All of our children's workers must have a NSW 'Working with Children' check conducted, have a registration number and abide by our safety policies.

 

Life Groups

On a fortnightly basis small groups meet in homes.

It's an informal time of fellowship, Bible study and prayer.

Everyone is welcome, including those who simply would like to know more about what Christianity is all about.

 

 

Ladies Ministries

The ladies meet at the church on a fortightly basis.  See the church calendar for specific dates. As with our other ministries, the ladies love to study the Bible and gain practical that will help them in their daily living.

From time to time the ladies organise special events, and each year they participate in a Ladies Retreat, along with ladies from other churches.

 

 

 

Men's Group

Westlakes men meet on a regular basis in a variety of places and situations.

On an informal basis it's common for men from the church to get together for golf, fishing and other activities.

 

 

 

Young Adults

Young adults are not the future of Westlakes, they are a vital part of the present. Our young adults are involved in ministry, but they also love to get together to learn, grow and enjoy each other's company.

 

 

"Transformed Youth"

Westlakes Transformed Youth is producing young disciples with transformed lives.  They have fortnightly meetings on Friday evenings involving a variety of activities and Bible teaching.

Our youth are on fire and active! The core group love the Lord and strive to serve Him as they reach out to others who are at a variety of levels of spiritual life and growth. It's a powerful ministry that is transforming lives.

 

Sports

A group of men of a wide variety of ages compete as the Westlakes soccer team in the local church league. It's an opportunity to touch the lives of team members in a positive way and reach out to the lost.

It's a family affair as others come to the games to cheer them on.

 

Special events

At the present time we have a new type of ministry on trial. About once a month we will be having an evening service with a special emphasis.

Sometimes it will be music related, or we may screen a Christian film. Other times we may have a brief teaching series of special interest.

Other special events also take place such as concerts and our Family Camp.
