Serving the Community
Joining a team is one of the most important things you’ll do as part of The Lakes Church. You will grow in your faith and in your understanding of how you belong to Jesus as you serve. You will be family together with your team, as you serve alongside each other. You will help our whole church bring light to the community around us as we each play our part.
If you would like to join a team or would like to know more about teams available please grab a teams booklet from the info desk or contact us.
We believe that prayer is a valuable part of our relationship with God, and a powerful way to impact our world. We regularly share things to focus on in prayer as we seek God together. Please contact us if we can pray for you or if you are here on a Sunday, grab a prayer card and put it into one of the giving boxes and we will pray for you and your need.
Often it can be a busy week for food requests for people in need in our community. People in our church regularly bring non-perishable food items, ready for us to give. If you are able and would like to, pick up some extras during your weekly shop and donate them to the info desk on a Sunday. Alternatively, drop by the church office in Cairns during the week if you need some food for yourself or your family, and we’ll do our best to help you!
We offer referrals to professional counselling with trained Christian counsellors. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
We have a strong connection with Compassion Australia, and there are many people in our church who sponsor children through Compassion. As a church we have an official partnership with Compassion in Cebu, Philippines.
