• Lighthouse North

Lighthouse North is a faith-based gathering with a vision to create fresh and innovative expressions of church that reflect and add value to our local northern suburbs community.

Here’s how it all works:
Every week we get together on a Sunday afternoon, usually at Austinmer Public School from 4pm, however what we do there changes week to week.

Firstly we have “NORTH Sessions” – Conversations about faith. A short presentation on a topic or idea with open Q & A with the speaker, followed by plenty of time to enjoy excellent coffee, food and community. Relaxed atmosphere, more like coming to a café than a traditional church service.
Fortnightly, Sundays at 4pm. Children’s programs provided from 1 – 10yrs.

Secondly we have “NORTH Praxis” – Spiritual growth workshops where we unpack and run-through through traditional and modern practices that lead to real spiritual growth. It’s about learning to move theory into practice. Ideas and methods around prayer, meditating on God, different ways to read scripture and much more, are all explored.
Monthly, Sundays at 4pm. Child care provided from 1 – 6yrs.

Thirdly we have “NORTH Community” – Social and fun! Park picnics, backyard feasts, BREAD and WINE Communion nights – enjoying life with great people!
Monthly, Sunday afternoons and early evenings.

Through the week we also have:
– “North Connects” – where we discuss life and faith in a smaller group dynamic;
– “The Village” – Mum’s group for any mums that love to connect. More Info
– “English conversation” – Teaching English and creating new friendship every week with people from refugee backgrounds;
– “Lighthouse Community Kitchen” – Thursday night pop-up restaurant for anyone in our community who might feel a bit lonely, isolated, or just hungry!

If you are looking to connect into a local church, get involved in volunteering, or are simply curious about faith and spirituality, we would love to meet you!
