Church is so much more than the hour and a half on Sunday – church is about doing life together. At Eastside, we have a growing Life Group ministry, with groups of people from all walks of life meeting in homes, coffee shops, office blocks and more to connect, pray together, and grow in their journey with God.

If you would like to join a Life Group, please contact the office at 012 998 2877 or for more details.
