Just before the service starts officially, we’ll dim the lights and start our pre-service video. This will be your cue to find a seat and get ready for a great service. The Worship Leader on duty will welcome you and start our time of singing. If you are not comfortable singing along with us, you are welcome to just listen. The songs that will be sung are ‘current’ and our sound includes instruments such as drums, electric guitar, piano as well as beats and synths.
During the service our MC’s will share what’s happening at ENGAGE and let everyone know about upcoming events and opportunities where you can be involved. We also incorporate something fun into most of our Engage Services, and our MC’s will be part of the interviews, kahoots, or other fun elements we bring into our services. We believe church should be enjoyed, not endured.
Because we are passionate about letting everyone know about Jesus, you will hear us speaking a lot about unchurched people. We always encourage our ENGAGE family to find new ways of serving, encouraging and loving people that are not part of ENGAGE simply so that more people can come to know our God.
A financial offering will be collected – but please know that we do not expect you, as a visitor, to contribute anything financial to ENGAGE! This is an opportunity for those who call Eastside ‘home’ to be financially involved in what we do as a church.
Finally, one of our preachers will preach a biblically sound message of around 25-30minutes, before people gather for tea and coffee and to meet new friends. Please join us at our ‘Connect Cafe’ for a cappuccino and to meet some of our crew. If you are visiting Eastside for the first time we would love to meet you!
