Welcome to the neighbourhood!
Glad you are here to check us out. We love meeting new people so be assured that there is a place for you here.
We totally understand that it can take a while for you to find your feet and get to know others in such a big church. Don’t give up – we are so diverse, you are guaranteed to meet someone who you click with real soon. Come along to our services for a few weeks and enjoy a free coffee in our welcome lounge at the the café; you’ll see the couches as you walk in through the entrance.
Every 6-8 weeks we host a New Friends’ Lunch for anyone new to Eastgate, whether you’re wanting to make this your regular spot or if you’re just needing more information before you decide, you’ll appreciate coming along to this lunch. Here, you’ll hear from the pastors, learn who does what, and get a feel for how we operate as a church, as part of God’s big story. Did we mention lunch is on us? To get an invite, just fill out one of the welcome cards on a Sunday morning available at the i-Centre (that’s what we call our information desk) and we’ll get in touch with you soon after. But if you’re reading this and you reckon you might be keen to check us out, ring our office to find out when the next lunch is and just turn up! There’s always enough food for everyone.
Also, if you’d like to know what’s happening on Sundays, our friendly admin person sends out an email every Friday with information on who’s speaking that Sunday as well as what’s happening that week. Flick us a message by going to our ‘Contact Us’ page and we’ll get your sorted with an email this Friday.
We hope to see you Sunday!
