Join us in celebration this Christmas

As we enter the Advent season, we'd like to invite everyone to join us in December for our celebrations of Christmas.

On Christmas Eve, we will be meeting at 5:00PM outside of the church for a special celebration. There will be animals, food, carols, and quality Christmas jokes, so please bring a friend and come join us for a great evening.

The following morning, Christmas Day, we will be holding a special worship service at 9:30AM. We would love to see you there!

Leading up to Christmas, we will be having our regular Sunday morning Worship Services at 10AM every week. In person services have resumed, so we would love to see you in person on Sunday morning. If you'd like to join us from home, every Sunday we live-stream our services on YouTube.

God bless you and we hope to see you this Christmas season.

Worship Together Again on Sundays 10am

Worship in person

Living Faith Church has taken advice on what is best practice since COVID restrictions have been reduced. Our goal is to ensure that our community remains as safe as possible, especially those at highest risk.

There is no cap on worship attendance for fully vaccinated members and those with medical exemption. Worshippers need to scan in and show vaccination status prior to entering for public worship.

Masks in worship will continue because it is impossible for us to ensure all worshippers keep 1.5m social distance when there is no cap on attendance.

Bringing your own communion elements will continue

Morning tea must be served to you. Do not self serve.

Worship live online

Our Worship Service is live-streamed on our YouTube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuVrDYM_aV1tAGgPZpjI-mw

Remember to prepare early with communion elements, then sit back, and take part in Sunday worship.

A Message From Our New Pastor Vic Heyward

​It is a pleasure to be the "new boy on the block" at the Living Faith Church. I am finding that it a great place to belong, ​very welcoming, a community that is keen to effectively engage in our local neighbourhood. I have the privilege of working with a great team of people as we explore together what it means to be a follower of Jesus today. At LFC we value community, relationship and serving God. We also believe that the message of Jesus is one that is filled with genuine hope and that God’s mercy and compassion are available to people at all times.

Returning to Church Services in Person

We are pleased to advise that LFC will be conducting worship both in the church, as well as live streaming the service online, at 10:00am every Sunday. However, in order to maintain COVID safety, a number of rules will need to be followed.

The number of people who will be able to attend worship in the church building will be restricted.

We will have a booking system, so if you wish to attend, you will need to email Bruce Hill.Your booking needs to be made by 5:00pm on the day prior to the service for every service that you wish to attend. Bookings cannot be made for more than one service at a time.

If you are unwell you must not attend.

We will have hand sanitiser available at the entry door. Please use the back entrance to the church, at the top of the hill, accessed via the gate from the carpark.

All visitors should scan the QR code displayed at the church by opening up their smartphone’s camera or QR reader app and focusing on the code. Your phone will display a link. Following the link will take you to a page explaining what to do next, which will include entering name and telephone number. You are encouraged to download the Service Victoria QR app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store prior to attending. An LFC member will be at the door to help those who may be unfamiliar with QR code technology. For those of you who don’t have phones with QR scanning capability, the LFC member at the door will use their phone to scan the QR code for you.

You will need to either bring your own communion elements to the church with you, or instead pray silently during the communion time.

Other than your communion elements, no other food or drink are allowed to be consumed on the premises until further notice.

You are requested to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times, before, during and after the service.

Masks must be worn at all times, except whilst partaking of communion. Soft congregational singing is allowed while masked.

When leaving the church, you may drop your offering into the bowl provided, but please do not touch the bowl.

People are encouraged to catch up in small groups after the service at various locations in the vicinity of the church.

It is important that these procedures be followed to ensure a COVID-safe environment for all.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at worship!
