what's happening

re-thinking God // sunday 17 july

We believe that following Jesus makes the very best sense of life. But we get that many people have doubts and are sceptical about church, God and faith. Rather than being put off by doubts and scepticism, we love helping people wrestle with and explore the bigger questions of life.

In past years, Dan Paterson has helped us unpack questions like ‘how can there be a good God if suffering abounds?’, ‘hasn’t science buried God?’ and ‘where is God in a time of crisis?’. On Sunday 17 July, Dan will be back to help us explore some more challenging questions of life and faith:

  • 8am: Why bother with church?
  • 10am: Why does God care who I sleep with?

You can hear Dan Paterson’s sessions from previous Re-Thinking God Sundays on our media page, just select ‘Browse Series’ and choose ‘Re-Thinking God’.

baptism course // 31 july

Our baptism courses run on Sunday afternoons, and are designed for those considering baptism, or anyone wanting to know more about what baptism is.

There will be absolutely no pressure for you to be baptised following the course, so just come along for a relaxed afternoon of discussion around the Bible!

explaining christianity // begins 22 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 2000 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.

The dates for the course are as follows:
Week 1: Monday night, 22 August
Week 2: Monday night, 29 August
Week 3: Monday night, 5 September
Week 4: Monday night, 12 September

Each night will will commence at 7:00pm with a dinner. The night will then finish with dessert at 8:30pm.

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, or background or religion.

grow women’s conference // 3 september

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 2022! We will spend the day singing, talking, praying, sharing, eating and, of course, hearing God’s Word together – this year focusing in the book of Jonah.
