“Even to your old age and grey hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you…” Isaiah 46:4
Thriving and purposeful
We encourage people in our church to make the most of the distinct challenges and blessings of life after sixty. We facilitate and provide a variety of ministry opportunities that cater to our older members, supporting one another in our roles as grandparents, community volunteers and in making the best use of the freedom that retirement offers.
Our seniors teach scripture in schools, visit nursing homes and retirement villages and support other church ministries such as our annual summer holiday program Good News Week and our Helping Hands ministry.
We want to ensure all seniors are well connected to the congregation and have access to ministry opportunities that help them to thrive and live with purpose in the context of a loving community.
We offer Growth Groups that cater solely for seniors, although many of our senior members choose to belong to groups where a variety of ages are represented.
“I feel safe and secure and have been warmly accepted into the The Lakes church family.”
“The events give us opportunities for social interaction with seniors throughout the church. Ten Pin Bowling was great!”
“There is great teaching at this church which encourages us to grow and stretch ourselves. The friendships and relationships in our Growth Groups are real.”
“The way of the Lord is presented clearly and our weekly Growth Group allows everyone to take part.”
