meet Jesus // 20 july

Jesus is one of the most debated people of all time. Is he a fraud? A dangerous revolutionary? Or saviour of the world? We’d like to invite you to join us for an event where we seek to uncover the truth about Jesus.

This July, we will be hearing from an expert in the life of Jesus, Dr John Dickson. He’ll be guiding us on this journey to uncover the truth about Jesus. We’d love you to join us!

When? 20th July, 2024 at 7pm.
Where? Advanced Engineering Building, Learning Theatre (GHD Auditorium), The University of Queensland

grow women’s conference // 3 august

GROW is for all women, from the not-yet believer to the new believer to the long-time believer, from teens to centenarians, from all backgrounds and from all churches around Queensland.

In past years it has been a wonderful encouragement to attend GROW with a big group of Eastside women, and we’d love to do this again in 2024! We will spend the day singing, talking, praying, sharing, eating and, of course, hearing God’s Word together.

explaining christianity // begins 18 august

We would love to introduce you to the one person who has changed our lives forever. His name is Jesus and he has promised to give you life to the full. He has transformed the lives of millions of people over the last 2,000 years. If you would like to investigate the claim that Jesus is Lord then we would love you to attend a 4 week course called Explaining Christianity.

Each night will commence at 7pm. with a dinner. The night will then finish with dessert at 8:30 pm.

There is plenty of time to ask questions and hear what answers the bible gives us. We believe there is no such thing as a dumb question! Everyone is welcome, no matter what age, background or religion.

church family gathering // 8 September

At our church family gatherings, we come together as a church to both celebrate God’s faithfulness to us and to seek His will for Eastside.

We’ll kick off at 3pm with our members meeting, followed by dinner + potluck dessert together, and then we’ll finish the evening with a prayer and praise service.

mission weekend // 21-22 september

We encourage you to save the date for this mission & ministry weekend in September. 

We know from God’s Word that the Gospel harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. So, this weekend will be an opportunity to focus on and pray for the spread of the Gospel all around the globe, and be challenged about how we might increasingly be a part of the work God is doing.

The weekend will include an event on Saturday, as well as being the focus of our Sunday morning services. More details to come!

y-conference // 5 – 7 october

Y is a weekend camp for young adults (school leavers to 30s). This year, Pastor Darren Lakers will be preaching through the books of Ruth, showing how God is the One who can bring beauty from brokenness.
