SUnday service

Everyone is welcome at Outlook!

If you have never been to Outlook or church before, here is what you can expect.

T-Shirt What to Wear

At Outlook, you do not have to dress up or dress in any particular way to come to church - we would just love you to come!

Car  Car Parking

At our usual location at 323 Ruthven Street (Rumours International Convention Centre), there are plenty car parks available in the car park right outside the venue, available for us to use!

Child  Kids in Church

At Outlook, kids are so welcome! They may be noisy and not sit still, but it doesn’t matter because kids are an important part of our church family. During our service, we have an ‘Outlook Kids Church’ program for kids in Kindy to Year 6, where they will play games and learn Bible stories together. The ‘Toddler Zone’ is a space for any younger kids to play during the service. We also have activities operating before and after the service for kids to play and catch up with friends!

Clock  What Time to Come

Our service starts at 9:30AM, but don't worry if you are running late! Feel free to come when you can.

Church  A Typical Outlook Service

An Outlook service is usually 60-75 minutes long. Here is the order of a usual Sunday service:

Worship – together we sing songs of worship and praise to God. Most people stand, however feel free to sit if you prefer. The words are on a screen. (15-20 minutes)

Announcements – we share information about what’s going on at Outlook & what events are coming up. (approximately 5 minutes)

Say G'Day - A chance for us to get out of our seats and say hi to someone new. (5 minutes)

Message - One of our preaching team or guest speakers will share a message. (20-40 minutes)

Morning TeaThere is morning tea after the service, with great coffee to enjoy while you catch up with old friends and make new ones.

Hand Holding US Dollar  Tithes & Offering

We take up an offering during the service as our church is self-funded, mainly supported by those who call Outlook home. However, we give our guests the option not to give as the service is our gift to them!

Cross  Communion

One Sunday a month we share communion together during the service. Communion is a way we remember and celebrate the new life we have through the death and resurrection of Jesus. We eat a small piece of bread/gluten free cracker and drink small cups of grape juice which symbolise the body and blood of Jesus. Anyone of any age who loves Jesus is welcome to share in communion with us.

Envelope Open  Get Connected

If you’d like to get connected with Outlook fill in a Connect Card which are avaliable online or at a Sunday morning service. Our team will be in contact during the week to chat about connecting with people at Outlook.

Kids are always so welcome!

You are most welcome!

Join us this Sunday, 9:30AM at 323 Ruthven Street.

First impressions

I was raised as a Christian right from childhood, but, in my late teens walked away from it all thinking I'd be right to venture off into life on my own. Well, I tried that for some time - for almost 20 years actually, and basically came to a point where I knew that I was missing 'something' in life, and decided I should get back on track again spiritually.  Finding a church was especially important to me too now I was a wife and mum.  For some years however I hesitated about finding a church thinking - my kids were too young to behave and sit quietly in church - I wasn't "Christian" enough -  my life was not "right" enough to be able to go to church.  I guess I was waiting for that perfect time when I would be "ready" to try it out again. What I didn't realise was that there is no perfect time to start going to church - God just takes you where you are at - and He takes care of the rest!

Eventually I decided that I should just start checking churches out anyway (even though I still didn't feel "ready") and looked around different places for a little while to find a new church home. I was wanting to find a church where I would "fit in" - one that my kids would love going to and one that would accept me "just as I am". At about the same time a friend told me about her new church, Outlook Christian Church, and invited me along.  So, I did!

I was impressed at how friendly and welcoming the people were - just warm and genuine, non judgmental people, most with families and young children - people who I could relate to. The environment is relaxed and stress free. I quickly found I didn't need to worry too much about the kids making noise during church - they just play happily with their toys and most other families have kids anyway so I didn't feel isolated. The kids love the games room where they can play the Wii while I am able to enjoy a cappuccino and morning tea after the service and chat with some great people

The style of worship is contemporary and fresh but not "over the top".  The music is uplifting and the sermons are practical and relevant and I always seem to find something in them for me.

Outlook has been my "church home" for more than a year now.  The kids love it too and look forward to church every Sunday.  I whole heartedly encourage you to check it out!
