    Our Services

    We believe that Eastside has a service just for you.
    All our services follow strict Covid protocols and you will need to check-in when you arrive, so please plan to be a few minutes early

    9:00 Family Service

    Eastside’s morning service caters for the entire family. Our Sunday morning service has both a ‘Kids Church’ and ‘Teen Church’ running alongside the main service, making sure everyone feels at home in an age-appropriate environment. Parents of babies under 2 can enjoy the service from our well-equipped baby room with other parents while their little ones play or sleep. Everyone is welcome at Eastside!


    18:00 Young Adults service

    Eastside’s 6:00pm Service every Sunday, called ENGAGE, caters primarily for 16-35-year-olds – but everyone is welcome! Engage focusses on helping millennials thrive on their journey with God as we Engage with God, His Word and each other. This is a fun, fast-paced service that you will enjoy whether you are single or married; in school, studying or working; churched or unchurched. ENGAGE exists for you!


    The Eastside DNA

    Every church has its own identity, meeting the needs of people from various walks of life. Our unique footprint is that we are a church that is casual and relaxed, while still serving and ministering with excellence.

    Our worship services are casual – we are a “jeans and tees” environment, though if you prefer to suit up – you’re more than welcome to! Our worship style is modern and our preaching is Biblical and practical. Sunday services usually last around 1hr15. Our kids’ ministry happens concurrently with our 9:00am and 10:30am services.

    Beyond Sunday, we encourage everyone who calls Eastside ‘home’ to be part of a Life Group – small groups of people gathering in homes across the city – to do life together.

    Thinking of visiting?

    We would love to meet you! Below you’ll find the information you need to join us for our next online service.  If you would like any info, please let us know via [email protected]

    When and Where?

    We meet at 09:00 and 18:00 on a Sunday for services, and also stream our services on Church Online.  Our services are similar, but do lean toward families in the morning, and young adults in the evening.

    What about Covid?

    Eastside is committed to ensuring that every one of our gatherings are safe, secure and convenient. Because of Covid regulations, if you join us for a service you will need to “Check in” at our check in station, have your temperature checked, wear a mask, and maintain social distancing.
