A big part of belonging in any church community is finding ways to get involved – serving in an area or ministry that God leads you towards. We would love to help empower you to serve God and have many opportunities that you can explore further to grow in your faith.
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10

Our Schools Program ministry is an opportunity for us to continue serving the wider Mitcham community through one of the local schools. Our team meets weekly in the school term to run a games program through their lunch break for year 5 and 6 students. The team aims to provide a safe environment for students to come into where they can be themselves, know they will not be bullied, and simply have fun!
The Big LAN
We recognise that different people connect in different ways. Therefore, as well as reaching out to the sports communities we want to engage with the gaming community also. Overseen by one of our Young Adults Jacob Rayment and his team, The Big LAN seeks to bring ‘gamers’ together from all over the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne to connect with one another for a 12 hour gaming session.
