We have a number of ministries running in our church.
The heart of our church is found in Life Groups that meet in people’s homes throughout the community. People come together to support and care for one another, and learn to relate the teachings of Jesus to their daily lives.
Come and enjoy a weekly program for preschoolers. Experience the fun of music and movement.
Children develop skills to enhance their preschool education, through the use of music, rhythm and other music related activities. In addition, “Mainly Music” seeks to celebrate and provide encouragement in the role of parenting.
“Mainly Music” meets Thursdays at 10am.
Our Kids Church program runs at the same time as our 10:00am service.
Our aim is to create an environment where they can learn and experience the love and purpose God has for their lives. The children have a fun-filled time of learning about God’s love for each of them, and living for Him.
The Kids Church program is divided into two age groups. Age 2 to 5 and Prep to Grade 6.
On Sunday mornings during the school term those in Years 7-12 move out during the service for a time of learning and reflecting on life’s issues and how the bible gives encouragement and guidance when facing life as a teenager.
We partner with Kids Hope Australia and Belgrave South Primary School to support children by providing mentors for one child, one hour each week. We build caring and supportive relationships and help these children realise their full potential socially, academically and emotionally.
Our basketball ministry began in 1997, when we first entered a team in the Victorian Baptist Basketball Association (now Victorian Churches Basketball Association).
We currently have two teams competing, a Men’s team in ‘A Grade’ and also a team in the Women’s competition.
The teams are built on a foundation of living out our faith through sport. Meaning the teams meet fifteen minutes prior to the start of the game to pray and spend time together, then repeat this following the game.
If you would like to come down and support the teams, they play at Maroondah Indoor Sports Centre on Monday nights – please contact the church office for game times.
During the week
Each year in May as a church we collect as many cans of food as possible (target aimed and reached in 2019 was 1500 cans) to support the great work of the Dandenong Ranges Emergency Relief Services (DRERS) in feeding the homeless through the winter months.
