Our 10:00AM Sunday Service
Sunday morning at Legana usually consists of a time of contemporary worship, Holy Communion (except on the last Sunday of the month), prayer for people’s needs, collection of offerings, video-news, [children go out to our Children’s Centre for Kids Church], teaching of God’s Word, close around 11:30AM. We have ample parking. We have a Mothers’ area where children can be settled, and, a separate baby-change and feeding area. There is no reserve seating and you are welcome to sit where you are most comfortable. There is no need to dress up. There is an opportunity to meet with the pastors after the service in our guest lounge.
Our 5:30PM Sunday Service
Our Sunday evening service is at 5:30PM and is early enough for even young families to attend together. We have 2 or 3 worship songs, a time of prayer, testimonies, and preaching. On the first Sunday night of each month we have leadership training. This is open to anyone to attend.
Our Home Groups
Home Groups are where small groups of people gather each fortnight in people’s homes to share together, study God’s Word, and pray together. We have Home Groups around Launceston and the Tamar Valley. When you connect with us, we can refer you to one of our Home Groups to help you connect more personally.
Our KiDS Church
Each Sunday just before the preaching commences our children aged between 3-11 (Pre-school to Grade 6 Elementary/Primary School) go out to our KiDS Church for their age-appropriate Bible classes. This ministry is led by our Children’s Pastor, Russell MacKenzie. Russell is a Grade 3 teacher at Newstead College.
Our Youth Group
Our Youth Group is for anyone between the ages of 13 to 23 and they meet each Friday in our Auditorium. There’s food, fun, music, an inspiration moment by one of the leaders, then small groups where people can share and share together. In addition to this, our Youth Group has regular social outings. This group is led by a leadership team and overseen by one of our elders, Tony Boyle.
