Welcome to Life Church

Welcome to Life Church – a vibrant church meeting in two locations: Manly and Haberfield. We are an ordinary bunch of people following an extraordinary God. Saved by love, shaped by grace and sent with power, we want to bring the LIFE of Jesus to our city.

At Life Church, everyone is welcome to come and explore, grow and mature in their faith. Our services are dynamic and full of life, the kids love church and all ages and backgrounds are represented. You will love being a part of this community!

Life Church meets at 3 William Street, Fairlight and 96 Dalhousie Street, Haberfield. While our buildings are over 100 years old, they have been modernised to make them feel like home! Our services are a great time to meet as a community, grow in our faith, minister to one another and share life!

You are welcome to join us. There is also a bunch of ways to connect happening mid week like our Life Groups, serving at the local Salvation Army, the Alpha Course and The Marriage Course, Young Adults,  Friday Youth and much more!

Term Two Teaching Series, 2023

In term 2 at Life Church, we are looking at The Upper Room Discourse in John’s gospel! This series will look at Jesus’ final words to his disciples as he prepares them to go into the world and bear fruit that will last.

Courses at Life Church

The Alpha Course is your opportunity to explore faith and the meaning of life! The next course is starts On Wednesday the 15th of February. Go to the Alpha Course page for more details about coming along.

We are also running The Marriage Course and the Pre-marriage Course a couple of times a year. Contact the church for more details.

A common disconnect in the Christian life is between what happens on a Sunday, with what happens the rest of the week. The Reframe Course from Regent College seeks to guide us through this as it looks at the big story of scripture that then reframes all of life. 

Mid Week at Life Church

At the heart of Life Church is passionate worship, prayer and Spirit filled ministry. Worship Nights are open to everyone who wants to meet with God in extended times of seeking God’s presence! They happen on Wednesday’s once a month at 7pm.

Manly Life Playtime is for little kids and their parents and carers up at the church mid week. The kids enjoy free play time, stories, songs and a craft each morning. You are welcome to join us during term time, Wednesday 9:30-11:30am each morning.

Manly Life Youth happens every Friday evening during term time up at the church from 6-8:00pm for youth in years 4-6 (led by Tanja) and 7-10 (led by Lani). Beyond mighty fusbal challenges and Nintendo switch games, the kids grow in their faith with the amazing Manly Life youth team!
