Creative Ministries

Creative Ministries exists for the sole purpose of worshiping the Lord God Almighty

We are all called to worship God. Creative Ministries enables people to apply their desire for worship in a practical sense, and learn how to lead people into worship using their particular gifts and talents. Its also allows people to work within a worship team environment.

We train and mentor in areas that best releases a person’s gifting into worship. Using the musical talents within the team we write our original songs that reflect the character of worship at CLC. We aim to keep Creative Ministries music alive, relevant and fresh, with the primary focus on worship.

We also cater to young adults with our own youth band who apply worship in a way that is relevant to their generation.

We strive for excellence in all areas in Creative Ministries, both as individuals and as a worship team.

As worship team we make a resting place for God’s presence and learn to minister to Him as His sons.

We would love you to come and be part of what God is doing in our church. Please Contact Us for more details!

Home Fellowships

By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
John 13:35

Home fellowships are important to the life of the church and the individual. We have many home-groups in the church and each one has a distinctive “flavour”.

The midweek meetings are filled with passionate discussions, prayer fun and of course food!! These are places where close relationships are formed in an atmosphere of acceptance and freedom of expression. We learn to care about the day to day lives and challenges of the people around us. They are great places to bring the “unchurched”.

Home fellowships meet on Tuesday nights, Wednesday nights and Friday nights and are located in various areas on the Northern Beaches.

If you are not part of a home group, please come along and join one. Phone 9979 7073 and talk to John or Jo Wagstaff (Directors Home Groups) for the locations or Contact Us.

Men

It takes courage, endurance and sacrifice to fulfil our roles as men. The Men’s Ministry at Christian Life Centre seeks to connect, engage, support and encourage men to enable them to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ, their families and those around them. We aim to provide opportunities for men to help equip them to influence their world for Jesus.

In order to do this we run a number of structured and unstructured activities that center around gathering men together and reaching out to men in the church and community. This may be through discipleship and mentoring activities, fundraising, sporting events, meals, education, father/son camps and other activities that provide an opportunity to help equip men to fulfil their purpose in Christ.

If you want to get information about our group, please subscribe to our mailing list.

Missions

Missions is the heart beat of our church. God calls us to go and make disciples.

Missions always start at home, it’s here where we gain credibility, and learn the skills required to reach a dying world. Our support reaches the nations of the world. From Australia to Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Sri-Lanka, Mauritius, Sudan and not forgetting a number of itinerant Evangelists in this country to the Aboriginals and beyond.

Let me encourage you in your continued giving to missions, there’s much to be done.
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?” As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!
Romans 10:14-15

Seniors Church

An Interdenominational Ministry designed for Seniors

The aim of this ministry is to encourage seniors to maintain a “refiring” mentality instead of a “retiring” mindset. If you are a senior person you are most welcome to join us each week.

Psalm 92:12-14 is our Senior Church Psalm

The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord Shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing

A church service weekly.

Venue: Christian Life Centre
Downstairs coffee room
Corner Barrenjoey Road & Polo Avenue, Mona Vale
Time: Tuesday Mornings 10:00am – 11.00am

Seniors’ Church is a different type of service as the format is not set. There is preaching, communion, prayer for healing, prayers for those in need and morning tea afterwards.

Women

Women’s Ministry continues to change as most of the women are involved in full-time or part time employment. What an opportunity to influence in all these different areas. The scope and sphere of women’s ministry has changed and enlarged.

Our goal as a pastoral team is to keep women strong in the Lord and able to stand as witnesses and lead others to Christ and disciple them. Whether it be in mother’s groups or in the corporate arena etc, our goals are that women KNOW WHO THEY ARE and INFLUENCE THOSE AROUND THEM. Our two main ingredients are witness and fellowship.

Our methods of achieving these two goals vary with the times and situations. They can be fun movie nights, pamper nights, “doing coffee” after the women’s prayer meetings, breakfasts and dinners. Flexibility has been a key. Whatever it takes to care for one another and attract those that don’t know Jesus!

Junior Church (5 – 12 Years)

We believe that children are one of our societies most vitally important assets and so we provide children aged 6 – 12 years with their own vibrant and fun church service each Sunday Morning organised and run by their own children’s Pastor and team of caring adults.

We try and make Junior Church a fun environment to learn about God. Using practical examples these young school kids can understand and relate to.

We want the kids to embark upon their own journey of discovering and falling in love with Jesus, at the end of the day it is all about relationship, relationship with each other and relationship with God.




Kindy Church (2 – 5 Years)

Have you seen young lambs leaping in the field at Sunset? That’s about the energy level of the average 2 – 5 year old. They are enthusiastic about everything!

At CLC Kindy Church we aim to provide our children with a fun filled environment to suit their needs. Active free play, social interaction with their peers, small learning activities, games and acceptance in a Christian environment. These are our spring boards for the years programme.

If you have 2 – 5 year olds at home on Sunday Morning with nothing to do, bring them along and they’ll have a fun filled time.

Jo Wagstaff
Coordinator Kindy Church




Creche (6 Months – 2 ½ Years)

Each Sunday morning a Crèche is provided for babies and toddlers up to 2½ years which is run by the mothers themselves.
