what's happening

New to Eastside? We’d love to get to know you better over lunch! You’re invited to our Connect Lunch, where we’ll share a meal together (on us!) and chat more about Eastside and how you can get better connected.

growth groups // mid year sign ups

Discipleship is not optional. We believe that every person at Eastside is called to increasingly and passionately follow Jesus in every area of life. The pattern of a Christian life is come as you are, but by the grace of God, it is not stay as you are. Through God’s word and by His Spirit we are called to a lifetime of helping one another to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus.
 
As part of our discipleship pathways, Growth Groups are for Christians who have already laid solid foundations for following Jesus.

grow women’s conference // 17 august

GROW is a day conference that brings women of all ages, stages and backgrounds together to thrive on God’s word. This year the focus will be ‘staying true to Jesus in 2 Timothy’.

In 2018 the 30 Eastside women who attended had a wonderful day together, so we encourage you to sign up for 2019 below, as part of Eastside’s group.

growth night #2 // 29 august

In the last 10-20 years our culture has changed rapidly. We are now post-Christian, post-church and post-reached. And whether we like it or not, we sit on the wrong side of the so-called ‘culture wars.’ We know that we should share Jesus, but the truth is that many of us don’t know where to start.

This is why we are hosting Sam for a free evening of training. He is a husband, father, part-time doctor & evangelist with the City Bible Forum. Last year his book Evangelism In A Sceptical World was released, and it is now Christianity Today’s number 1 book on evangelism.

membership course // expressions of interest

Register your interest for our upcoming membership course here, where we will explore what the Bible says about membership and discuss what this looks like at Eastside! More details to come.

baptism course // 18 & 25 august

Our baptism courses run over two 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!

baby dedications // 21 july

explaining christianity // begins 26 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, 26 August
Week 2: Monday night, 2 September
Week 3: Monday night, 9 September
Week 4: Monday night, 16 September

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

growth night #3 // 16 october

For our term four Growth Night, we will be joined by Dan Paterson who will be speaking on ‘The Gospel & Sexuality’. Dan is a leading Australian Apologist and speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.
