About Us

Dear LifeWay family,

What an amazing journey LifeWay has been on so far. To see God’s power at work through ordinary people, prepared to move, serve and do ministry together is wonderfully exciting. To see the unity, generosity, and faith-filled willingness to ‘have a go’ is truly inspiring. It is incredibly humbling to be part of a community who are

LIVING Jesus' love | SHARING His hope with all | GROWING in grace together

So are you ready to ‘take-off’ on the next decade of our journey at LifeWay and see what God has planned for us and through us? You are not here by accident. God has led you to this place, at this time, with your gifts to be part of realising the vision to which he has called us. To be A vibrant, multi-ethnic Christian Church equipping and empowering disciples of all ages in advancing his Kingdom locally and globally, by living fully, sharing boldly, and growing purposefully in the life-transforming grace of Jesus Christ.

God has given you a boarding pass to go on a journey:

- Beyond where you have been before.

- Beyond the limits you have imposed on yourselves.

- Beyond the limits you have let others impose on you.

For as we believe the truth of Jesus, practice the way of Jesus, and grow in the life of Jesus we can step out boldly in faith and trust knowing: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. 2 Corinthians 2:9

ONE MISSION ... making disciples of all nations

ONE COMMUNITY ... serving and impacting in multiple locations

MANY JOURNEYS ... celebrating each person’s unique giftedness

TOGETHER – living, sharing and growing

LifeWay, you’re cleared for Take-Off! Which plane will you board? What stopovers will you make? How far will you let his love take you?

God, prepare our hearts for what you have for us next and give us a heart of faith to go where you call us to go. Amen.

For minds on Jesus

Does mindfulness improve our wellbeing? Can it be practised within a Christian worldview? Can it be Christ-Centred? Yes.

Leading academic and experienced mental health worker Dr Katherine Thompson addresses these questions and draws on the rich Christian tradition to present Christian mindfulness exercises that help us slow down, connect to what is happening inside ourselves and make space to listen for God's guidance in everyday life.

“Christ-centred mindfulness is expanding the idea of mindfulness not just so it focuses on ourselves, but on God and ourself at the same time.” Author, Dr Katherine Thompson

Sharing Jesus doesn't have to be awkward

"Sam Chen helps all of us to not be "that guy" so we can point people to the person of Jesus. Sam has taken a heavy topic and made it into a breezy read that will inform, amuse and inspire." - Abdu Murray⁠

Most Christians know they should be trying to tell their friends and family about Jesus. But in a post-Christendom world, personal evangelism is viewed negatively--it's offensive, inappropriate, and insensitive. Recent studies confirm that the majority of Christians rarely evangelise, worried they might offend their family or lose their friends. In How to Talk About Jesus (Without Being That Guy), author Sam Chan equips everyday Christians who are reluctant and nervous to tell their friends about Jesus with practical, tested ways of sharing their faith in the least awkward ways possible.

Drawing from over two decades of experience as an evangelist, teacher, and pastor, Chan explains why personal evangelism feels so awkward today. And utilising recent insights from communication theory, cross-cultural ministry, and apologetics, he helps you build confidence in sharing your faith, and teaches you how to evangelise your friends and family in socially appropriate ways.

Take up the Table Moments challenge

The Table has always been a great ministry opportunity. Read the Gospel of Luke especially and you will see that Jesus met, healed and transformed many lives around the table.

Around a table, we have unhurried time.

Around a table, we get to know people deeper

Around a table, we make new friends.

Around a table, we reveal the presence of Christ.

OUR VISION 2030 BEYOND LIMITS CHALLENGE FOR 2024

600 Table Moments hosted by LifeWay members.

600 moments to live his love, share his hope and grow in his grace together.

That is 2-3 invitations for every member.

This is not about doing anything extra from what you do already! It’s simply being intentional in those Table Moments.

- Think about those neighbours or work colleagues that you could get to know better.

- Invite them for a meal.

- Share stories as you do over a meal – how do you meet, what brought you to this suburb.

- Pray – maybe just ask the Lord’s blessing over your meal with a table grace…or before they leave just ask if there is anything you can pray for them, or simply offer this prayer. Dear Jesus, thank you for bringing ______here today. Thank you for the opportunity to get to know them. Watch over and bless them in the coming week. Amen. It is that simple.

- Take a photo (if it is appropriate) or simply fill in a Table Moment card at each centre as we build a wall of Table moments to pray over and ask God to use for his purposes.

May God bless the Table Moments you share in 2024!

Today's verse & thought to ponder ...

APR

ROMANS 5:15

But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!
