How we help

Community Programs

Jesus was passionate about serving community. Likewise, his love drives us to help and serve ours.

Sapphire Life has many facets of serving. There is a place for everyone to make a difference and we invite you to consider and commit to making a life-difference with us!

GEMSTONES

At Sapphire Life, our Children are precious “gems”. We go a long way to make them feel at home, loved, wanted and appreciated.

During our 5.00 pm Sunday Service (4.00 pm winter), they join with the whole church family at the start and later, move off into their own space for their own exciting, fun-filled time.

All our Gemstones volunteers are accredited and we have procedures for check-in, check-out and children’s safety to ensure a loving safe environment for your children.

THE ALPHA COURSE

Have you got questions about life? Do you have questions about the Christian faith? The Alpha course is the Life Group for you.

Alpha runs regularly, with dinner and discussion, for a 9 week period. Each week you will look at a different question around the Christian faith. The times together are low key, friendly and are designed for exploration and conversation. Alpha is the perfect place to invite a friend with questions and to share some discovery time together.

Regardless of your journey in faith, this course is invaluable to set healthy life direction!

PRAYER

At Sapphire Life, we know that nothing significant happens unless it has the blessing of God. So we pray! Prayer is simply talking to our loving God; we pray to praise Him and thank Him, as we seek to understand His direction.

While all Sapphire Lifers practise a personal prayer life, our times of prayer together are especially powerful.

You may like to join in one of our regular prayer times – we will help you learn how to pray and seek God’s blessing.

If you have a need you can share it with our prayer team (click below) and they will confidentially pray over it for you.

LIFE GROUPS

Life Groups are where we meet to get to know each other better.

We believe that our extraordinary journey with Jesus is not meant to be walked on our own so we gather through the week to share what God is doing in our lives.

Life Groups run through the school term and have a start and finish date.

You can choose which Life Group suits you and move freely between Life Groups. They are are not a life time commitment!

Your Life Group leader however, is committed to praying for you by name everyday.

So check out the Life Group tab on the Sapphire Life App and join your Life Group today!

Oceans is a vibrant and important part of our SLC life. Designed for high school ages (Years 7 – 12) we provide a friendly, fun, energetic and safe space for all local youth to connect together.
