Life Edge is a huge part of our youth worship life. We are called ‘Life Edge’ because we believe that Jesus calls us to live our lives with the people living on the edges of society. LifeEdge caters mainly for Yr7-10 students. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month during school term. Starting with some pizza and fellowship, we then move into our unique ‘stations style’ worship. We use liturgy, pray together, read from the scriptures and contemplate what it all means. The young people involved are generally really excited to come and worship together, and their parents say that this has been meeting their children where they are at. Continue reading →

Visitors from Indonesian Church

Rev Novita and Mrs Rini visited St Leonard’s on 8 May to tell us about their church (Muarakarang GKI) in Jakarta, Indonesia. This was a reciprocal visit following Kim’s earlier visit to Jarkata. It was good to hear about church life and to swap experiences.

Mrs Rini (L) & Rev Novita (R) are welcomed by Kim
