"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
“But now God has placed each one of the parts in one body just as He wanted. And if they were all the same part, where would the body be? Now there are many parts, yet one body.”
1 Corinthians 12:18-20

If you're a member of SLC, here are some ways that you can get involved:
SERVING YOUR SLC FAMILY
Children's Ministry (once a month commitment)
We run a fun, relevant and engaging program during the service for children aged 1-12 years. If you love working with children and have a kind, nurturing and patient disposition, we need you on the team. The are two main roles: Teacher and Assistant.
If you have professional skills in graphic design, photography, events, copywriting, web development, marketing or filming, we would love your help with promoting SLC and engaging our community using your gifts and talents.
Elevate is the 18-35's community at Sydney Life Church. We meet to discuss relevant topics, connect and do life together. If you're good at organising and running events or with promotion on social media, we'd love your help in building our community.
Hospitality (once a month commitment)
Fellowship time is an important component of every service, which includes providing coffee, tea and snacks. The hospitality team arrive early to setup, serve morning tea after the service and pack down. No cooking skills are required, just a willingness to serve.
Housekeeping (once a month commitment)
We are so grateful for our church home and want to make sure it is always presentable and welcoming for our church family and visitors. If you are domestic whizz or have a green thumb, we'd love your help with general cleaning of our facilities or maintenance of our community garden.
Life Groups are an integral part of how we do 'life' at Sydney Life Church - in relationship with Jesus and one another. We are always looking for members of our church family to lead or host a new Life Group so if you're interested, please let us know.Meal Train (as the need arises)
Receiving a meal can make such a difference to someone who is going through a significant life event. We organise a meal train for families who have welcomed a new baby, those who are unwell, and for other reasons. If you're able to cook a meal, please join the meal train email list.Sanctuary Setup (once a month commitment)
Chairs need to be set out and packed up for each of our services and doesn't take long to do so this is a good one for strong, able bodied people.
Ushers & Greeters (once a month commitment)
If you enjoy making people feel welcomed and loved, then this is the ministry for you. Ushers and Greeters welcome people to church, usher them to their seats, distribute communion elements and collect tithes and offerings. The team is also responsible for helping to setup and pack down the sanctuary.
Women's Ministry (event-specific)
Each year, Pastor Barbara looks to build a team of dynamic women who have a heart to reach the women in our community, and who can support the activities of the Women's Ministry in planning, organising and setting up events.
We are always looking for talented musicians and singers who have a heart and calling for worship to join our team. Also, those who have skills and interest in AV to operate the sound desk, camera, live stream or lyrics/visuals program. Technical training will be provided.
SERVING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITYAn Art Moment (every Tuesday, 1-4pm)
If you have a passion for art and being creative, then help us with reaching our local community of creatives. If you can help with setup, pack down and fellowshipping with visitors, we'd love to have you on the team.
Mainly Music (on break but we hope to offer the program again in the future)
Mainly Music is an important outreach to the families of our local community. Through song, dance, active play and fellowship time, we have the opportunity to connect and build relationships with families in our community and to introduce God to them in a loving and nurturing environment. We always need help with setup, running the sessions, serving morning tea and pack down.
