We are intentional in building up and supporting the men and women in our church family, as well as those in the wider community. Our ministry programs cater to everyone, no matter where they’re at in their faith journeys. There are times for prayer, study, sharing, listening, giving, serving, and learning — intentionally created to help men and women grow in Christ and shape their identities in Him.
Real Men is about equipping men to be who God created them to be. Our men’s ministry is here to help men connect and become men of integrity, intimacy, identity, and influence. This is done through retreats, small groups, social events, Bible studies, encouraging fortnightly emails, and acts of service. In everything we do, we focus on five areas: real relationships, real actions, real masculinity, real mateship, and growing in Christ.
Throughout the year we run Pie Nights; Social Events; and a Men’s Retreat to build our men closer to each other and closer to God.
Sisterhood is a warm and welcoming ministry that is available to women of all ages and stages of life. It exists to encourage, equip, and empower women to say “yes” to Jesus.
Sisterhood has a weekly Bible study on Wednesday mornings during school terms. It’s a great time of hanging out, drinking coffee, and getting into the Bible. Our regular community, worship, prayer, and fellowship events continue to provide a friendly environment where relationships are forged and nurtured within the Lakeside community. In particular, the annual Sisterhood Gingerbread Night is a hit!
Sisterhood at Lakeside is a culture that goes beyond regularly scheduled events. Many women love to play sport as a team, head to the gym together, or catch up at Timeout Cafe — it would be great to see you around as well!
