We're One Big Family
At Axis Church, Jesus is the Centre. We are a big family with a strong focus on God's Love for us and our love for others. In just under 3 years we have grown from a small church of 30 to a large church of almost 1000. Our desire is to keep our 'small church feel' (where friendships are fostered, people belong and relationships with God and others grow and flourish) with a 'BIG church punch'!
This vision is lived out through our Groups. We all need others to love, to grow, to serve, to belong to witness and to do life together.
There are over 50 different small groups at Axis and we have three types, Growth Groups for fellowship, bible study and prayer, Family Connect Groups for outreach, fellowship, fun and family and Interest Groups for friendship, fellowship and support. Can I encourage you to have a look at all of our groups and get connected into the family at Axis?
Family Connect Groups
A monthly social connection with 6-10 family units. FCG's are very casual and all about fun, food, and family. With over 500 people now in FCG's, this has become a fantastic first step to belong in deeper community at Axis Church. These are groups for young and old, single and family – everyone can take part in a FCG.
These are discipleship focused groups of around a dozen people meeting regularly. Growth Groups meet in homes for Bible Study and prayer. Our growth groups are perfect for building stronger friendships and also for a next step of personal spiritual growth. We have a variety of growth groups meeting each week. We would love to see you in one of our growth groups.
Special Interest Groups
We love connecting people together who are like-minded and want to create an experience through a common interest. Our special interest groups vary from social groups, sporting groups, art and craft, mums and bubs, ministry groups, or anything where there is a common interest drawing the members together.
Help on a Team
Axis Church now meet in multiple locations on Sundays and have many ministry opportunities throughout the week. Our teams of volunteers are the hard working people who make this ministry function effectively and literally touch hundreds of people every week with the love of God.
You may join one of the following teams:
Kid's Ministry Team
Join our team of leaders, teachers and helpers who lead our kid's ministries each Sunday morning. Our kids ministry are called Little Fishes (0-3 yr old), Junior Jammers (pre prep and prep), Slam Jam (grade 1-6). You can choose your availability, and choose a preferred age group, and have full support in serving the children.
Help us create the warmth of a loving community through serving good food and coffee. Our Hospitality team are rostered to help set up, serve people after each of our worship services, and assist with cleaning up. Our team also help prepare and serve food during functions and other meetings.
From the car park to the front door, to the foyer, to the seat, we want everyone who comes into Axis to have waves of welcome and love flood over them. The Welcome Team are responsible to help create the atmosphere for God to move in the hearts of the Church. The team also serves as offering and communion stewards during the service.
Central Administration Team
Throughout the week there is a lot of office work and administration that goes on behind the scenes. At times we need extra help in the office. You may have skills and time available to assist in the office? If so, this is a great opportunity to help.
Worship and Production Team
Do you have the heart to worship and help lead others into worshipping the Lord? Can you play an instrument or sing (at Grade 4 level or higher)? Do you have skills with Audio / Visual and stage production. This team may be for you? This could be a great opportunity for you to be involved.
Church Setup Team
How about coming early and helping setup Church? Or, staying after the services to help pack up? Each campus has different levels of need in this area. If you could be part of our Setup Team you will find another level of joy as you stand back and watch the people flowing into a service that you helped make create.
We need to clean our facilities after each of our services and other weekly events and we all know many hands make light work. If you could be rostered as part of our Cleaning Team we would appreciate your heart to help. If Axis is your home Church, let's all pitch in and help by keeping it clean.
When you join a team you will step into a special role here at Axis Church, where we are seeing lives changed every week. Whether it's an upfront or behind the scenes ministry, God will use your gifts and passions to build the Church. There's nothing better than feeling the pleasure of God as you serve in a team.
When you choose a team to join, you will be contacted by a team leader who will make sure you have everything you need to succeed in volunteering here at Axis Church. We would love to welcome you onto one of our teams.
