Loved by Christ to Embrace all people, Empower each other and Impact the community.
Welcome to Firstlight Church, a family of grace.
Service Time: 3pm, Sunday (Starting 26 July 2020), 82 Huntriss Rd, Gwelup
Firstlight Church has been seeking a permanent building to call home for several years and is excited to announce that the search has finally ended. When Firstlight recommences church services and ministry activities physically, Firstlight will be relocating to Lake Gwelup Christian Church (LGCC). Whilst not a building we can call our own, it is a beautiful one we are blessed to be able to share and call home.
Located on the corner of Huntriss and Karrinyup Road in Gwelup, LGCC is a purpose-built venue with all the facilities to cater to Firstlight’s current and future needs. Staff will also be moving out of the office in Osborne Park and be based at LGCC.
Firstlight will use the building for our Sunday services as well as throughout the week for our ministry and outreach needs. Both churches will continue to worship under their own identity but at the same venue. As LGCC conducts its church services on Sunday mornings, Firstlight will be changing our service time to 3pm in the afternoon, finishing around 5pm. The first service at our new home will be on Sunday, 26 July 2020. We are planning something special so hope you can save the date.
The boards of both Firstlight and LGCC have met to pray and discern a way forward on several occasions. Both boards are confident that we share the same heart to be a blessing to the local and global community through a kingdom-partnership. Firstlight’s relocation to LGCC will be important for us to resume current ministries and create opportunities for both churches to work together for God’s kingdom.
Reflecting on what was shared by our leaders and the results of the survey earlier in the year, the board feel many of you want to see our Firstlight community grow, for us to have a place to call home, a place to welcome people without walls or barriers and also a place we can bless the community and meet their practical as well as spiritual needs. This building allows us to do all those things without being limited logistically by space and set up requirements. The potential this building brings to impact our community is only limited by our dreams and vision.
This move is transformational for Firstlight and is something we have been praying for over several years. This is a faith based, God-led decision confirmed by various dreams, visions and words received by leaders in both Firstlight and LGCC. The leadership have discerned this is God’s calling and are committed to following His lead and excited for the promise of things to come. The potential this new building and kingdom-partnership brings fills us with excitement, hope and joy for the future. We sincerely hope you will come be part of it.
We are blessed to finally have a place to call home.
