SUNDAY SESSION DATE CHANGE

Due to building availability, we will be moving our first Sunday Session in August on the 7th to the 31st of July. 

But first, let's put your mind at ease 

COME AS YOU ARE

No matter what - you're good enough.

We often hear people say they aren’t ready to come to Church because they aren’t good enough. The truth is, we’re all flawed and completely imperfect — that’s why we’re such a great community. This is a place where everyone is welcome and everyone's accepted. No matter your story, struggles, or past, you belong and we’re excited to meet you.

We get it

Going to a new church for the first time can be daunting.

That’s why we want to make your first Local experience a great one.

Here's everything you need to know.

When & Where

Gatherings

 

1st & 3rd Sundays

10.00am

Paul Latham Auditorium

Churchlands High School

Lucca St, Churchlands

At Gatherings, we meet as one group for a Sunday service. This is a time of encouragement, music, and a relevant message with practical applications for everyday life.

 

We also have a Kids Church and a crèche that is open from 9:30am.

Parking and creche information can be found here.

You're welcome to just drop in, but you can also let us know you're coming so we can welcome you and answer any questions you might have.

Lifespace

 

2nd & 4th Sundays

Various times and locations.

These are smaller groups that do life together — it’s where people at Local really find family. Lifespace is an opportunity to explore faith in a safe place, unpack the Bible, ask the big questions, and connect with each other.

What To Expect

Gatherings

 

A Gathering service usually goes for just over an hour. We’ll start with songs that help us connect with God.

 

Don’t worry if you’ve never heard it before, the words will be on the screen so you can join in if you want to. You can also use the time to reflect, pray, observe, or whatever you feel comfortable doing. After that, we’ll have some prayer or hear people share their life stories.

 

One of our pastors will then share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus for roughly 20 minutes.

Lifespace

 

Lifespace gather in homes: you can expect quality food, good company, and great conversation in a laid-back atmosphere.

 

We’ll watch a short video prepared by one of our pastors, then have an open discussion on that topic. If anyone in the group is facing life challenges, we’ll also take time to look after one another.

Stuff For Kids

Gatherings

 

If your kids are in Kindergarten to Year 6, we like them to stay in the service for the music. After that, they can head out to Kids Church for the remainder of the service.

 

Kids Church is split into two age groups: Kindergarten - Year 3 and Year to Year 6. During Kids Church, children engage in games, craft, song and dance, and Bible teaching.

 

We also have a Crèche for babies and toddlers under Kindergarten age that opens before the service at 9:30am and is open until 12:00pm.

You can check your kids in when Kids Church starts and sign them out when the service finishes. All our Kids Church volunteers have active Working with Children Checks and have completed our Child Safety Training.

Lifespace

 

Every Lifespace is different. If you have children you’ll be bringing along, let us know so we can match you with a group that has stuff for kids.
