WELCOME TO PARKLANDS!
We’re so glad you’ve decided to spend your Sunday with us. Along with our time & location, we’ve added some helpful information to make your visit as smooth as possible. We can’t wait to meet you!
We believe that Church is 24/7 and as part of that our Sunday gatherings give us the chance to worship God together and connect as a family.

WHAT IS A SERVICE LIKE?
We welcome people of all ages, shapes, ethnicity and backgrounds. At Parklands, community and family is at the heart of all we do, and we hope you feel wanted and loved as soon as you walk through the door.
KIDS AND YOUTH
Kids and Youth are an invaluable part of our family. On a Sunday we have teams committed to help kids engage with God through games, crafts, multi-media, stories and fun! In the building, we’ll have a Toddler group for walkers to 3 year olds, and then groups for Infants (reception-year 3) and Juniors (years 3-6), as well as a Youth group for school years 7-9.
Have any questions? Check out some FAQs here.
We are passionate about worship and making it relevant and accessible to all. Playing a mix of old and new the worship team tend to use contemporary songs and music to help us all engage with God.
Prayer is at the heart of all we do. During the service there may be times to pray altogether, to respond to the talk, or a chance to receive prayer from a member of our team. This will never be forced on you, and we will always explain any ministry times that may happen.
We love the Bible and believe it brings colour and life to our lives. Each week we have a 25-30 minute talk that helps us unpack the Bible and how it’s teachings apply to our every day lives.
TEA, COFFEE AND CHAT
After our service we invite you all to stay behind for some refreshments as we spend time chatting and getting to know each other. For those joining online, a virtual coffee and chat is available.
We know there are many who would love to join us on a Sunday but are unable to due to illness, distance, work and other factors and we’d still love to resource you and stay connected as family. We livestream our 10.30am service each Sunday and they stay on our YouTube channel so that you can watch them when it suits you.
