What to Expect at Life Anglican Church
Every service is a little different, with it’s own tastes and styles but there are some things that are common across all services.
This church guide will let you know what to expect if you attend a church service with us.
Our services start with singing lead by our music teams. Each service does that a little differently and some even in different languages.
We work hard at keeping our music engaging, spirit enriching and in genuine community.
We are a church who wants to depend on God for everything, thank him and bring our requests to him.
Small elements of prayer are spread throughout our services including a time committed to bringing specific requests to God.
You will not be asked to pray out loud but we invite you to join by listening & reflecting as we lead people in prayer.
We preach, teach and proclaim Jesus. We believe true and eternal LIFE only comes through him and want to connect people into Jesus and His Church.
We believe the best way to know Jesus is through his word the bible, so we read the bible and teach from it.

We value children
We are passionate about helping parents teach their children about Jesus. Many of our services include a kids programs that are a safe, fun and engaging environment for children to learn. These programs are run by passionate and trained leaders including some qualified childcare workers and teachers. The program includes singing, games, craft, stories and discussion time.
How do I register my kids
You can just arrive at any one of our church services and you child can attend KIDS LIFE. Kids come into the main church with parents for family worship time. We announce the time for children to head out to Kids Church. You are welcome to join your child, meet the team and settle your child into any of our programs.
A Parent room with a change table is available.
In some of our centres we have a comfortable parents lounge with toys for young children, a window overlooking the church service and a speaker to hear the service.
