In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.View More

All are welcome, and we would love to see you
equipping and empowering disciples of all ages in advancing the kingdom locally and globally
We’d love to have your family join us.
Life is full of highs and lows, and it’s a journey that’s even harder if you try to walk it on your own.
This morning we announced the exciting news that LifeWay, in partnership with the LCA NSW District have employed Danny Brock as a Church Planter to begin Church Planting in Western Sydney as part of our Beyond Limits Vision2030 Kingdom Growth Journey.
We welcome Danny, Michelle, Dylan and Cody to the LifeWay family and look forward to meeting them all in person and joining them in this awesome move of God. Please keep the Brocks in your prayers as we journey this next phase of God's exciting plan for us. There is so much more to come! God willing, Danny will be installed at our first gathering back together in worship on Sunday August 2nd. Don't miss this celebration!
Discipleship is an intentional journey in grace where we seek to walk Jesus’ way and become more like him each day. The behaviours of faith: prayer, reading the Bible, worship, relating to & serving others, and generosity are more than just rote rituals, but are shaped by the depth of love we have received & the breadth of trust we offer in return.
Join us and be faith formed in your life in Christ and transformed by life among his people.
Many people have expressed a desire to receive the strengthening and healing meal of forgiveness and grace that Jesus gives as he comes to us in the Lord’s Supper. As restrictions have eased on how many people can gather in homes, Pastor Mark and Mat are willing to come to LifeGroups or gatherings of families/people in the home to give the Lord’s Supper. Please contact our Pastors if you wish to do this.

The Leadership Team have approved a RoadMap forward for returning to onsite ministry. Please take the time to read it. It is subject to change depending on Government restrictions but provides some time markers to help us navigate a return to onsite worship in addition to our online service.
A Key feature of this return to onsite is that we will now have a weekly 5pm Sunday service starting in August as well. Stay tuned for more details.

Following on from the highly successful June walk, we’ve decided on something of similar intensity for the July walk. We have a few more logistical issues to sort out however, as it’s a one-way walk this time.
Date: Sunday 19 July
Time: meet at Thornleigh Oval at 12:30pm (15mins walk from Thornleigh train station)
Location: Thornleigh Oval, Handley Ave Thornleigh to LifeWay carpark, Epping
Distance: 7.5km (mostly downhill)
Duration: 2hrs (plus rest/break time)
Terrain: rocky (wear sturdy shoes), possibly muddy, several water crossings
Bronwyn and I did it yesterday in 2hrs, with a short break. There are five creek crossings on stepping stones, plus 2 concrete causeways – we traversed all of them with dry boots! It’s a fairly easy walk starting from Thornleigh (not like last year going the other way!), and the hardest part is probably at the end once we’ve come out of the tunnel under the M2! The first block heading up Somerset St towards Norfolk Road is a bit steep.
Getting there and back
There are several options for you to choose from:
- Both start and end locations are close to train stations and the trains are running that weekend, so using trains is one option - either before or after or both.
- If you have 2 cars, you could drop one car at LifeWay Epping, then drive to Thornleigh – there’s parking at the Oval.
- We can meet at LifeWay Epping at 11:45am and organise car pools, with half the cars staying at Epping, the other half driving to Thornleigh.
Let me know if you’re interested in the car pool idea so we can figure out the numbers.
Hope to see you all on the 19th!
