Ministries

Everything we do here at Lakeside is shaped by our vision of helping people discover and fully follow Jesus. Our ministries, events, and programs are next steps to help you do just that – in community – with others who are growing and learning as well.


Alpha

Alpha is widely acknowledged as the very best overview and introduction to the Christian faith available today. Alpha provides a wonderful opportunity to ask and explore questions that may be new to you; and questions that you may have avoided in the past.

We begin with an excellent home-cooked meal.

For more information or to sign up, visit the Alpha website.

Children

We partner with families to help kids discover and fully follow Jesus.

Kids gather on Sunday mornings in an environment specifically geared to them. From infants to Grade 5, kids are cared for in a secure setting. They are led by a dedicated team of volunteers who get to know each child by name.

Kids learn about God and making faith a part of their everyday lives through engaging stories and hands-on activities. We want each kid to grow up to become someone who loves God, loves others, and really lives.

Family Care

At times, we all need support and encouragement through life’s changes and challenges. Here at Lakeside, our Family Care Ministry responds to various life circumstances that people within our Lakeside family experience. We come alongside them to provide support, encouragement and prayers as well as practical needs such as meals and visits. We also refer people to other support programs offered in the church such as GriefWalk, DivorceCare, Celebrate Recovery and Journey Counselling Services.

Griefwalk

Griefwalk is a peer-based Support Ministry where those who have experienced losses themselves are ready to come alongside and “walk” with those who are grieving. We offer this support through:

  1. Bereavement Loss Support Groups.
  2. One-to-one peer support.
  3. Book Resources. We have a library of helpful books and pamphlets.
  4. Referral to a Grief Counselor.

Small Groups

At Lakeside, genuine life change—spiritual growth—is one of our core values. We believe that as followers of Jesus, it is important that we continue to grow spiritually throughout our lifetime. We also believe that life change is best facilitated in small groups. Why? Simply, God created us to live in community. We were created to have a relationship with Him and with others. Genuine life change occurs within the context of relationships. We encourage everyone to move from sitting in rows on Sunday morning to joining a circle of friends in a small group.

If you are new to Lakeside, joining a small group is a great way to meet new people and get connected. A small group is a community of people who gather weekly in an environment where they can make friends and encourage each other in their journey of faith.

Students

A community helping students discover and fully follow Jesus.

Lakeside Youth is a fun place for students in Grades 6-12 to experience and build a personal relationship with God. Evenings include music, games, and both large and small group time. Students can also develop their gifts and abilities by serving others whether through music, leadership or organizing special games. They will develop friendships that last a lifetime.
