We know God gifts people differently. And he calls us to use what He’s given us – our gifts, passions, resources – to build the Christian community up to be like Jesus, and be a light to the world.
So if you’re a part of Village Church, we’d love you to consider where your gifts & passions lie, where the need is, and serve with us. You can see below some of the teams we’ve got that serve together. We think it’s good for people to just choose one (two if you can’t control yourself) so they can invest deeply in the people, the task and the opportunity.
So have a look at the current teams below and contact us on the form across if you’d like to know more.
Connect TeamIF YOU LOVE MEETING NEW PEOPLE, HOSPITALITY, AND SEEING PEOPLE CONNECTED, THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU.
As Christians we know that we were once aliens and strangers from God, but that He reached out, and brought us back to Himself through Jesus. It’s that kind of loving generosity that we want to extend to those that join us at Village.
So if you love helping new people feel welcome, being hospitable, and seeing people connected and included, this is the team for you.
Expectations: Just that you’ll have a keenness or willingness to be involved in any of the following. We’ll also have breakfast together once a term to support and encourage one-another, spend some time in prayer, and share creative ideas for helping people connect.
Social JusticeIF YOU'VE GOT A HEART FOR SOCIAL ISSUES, THE VULNERABLE, THE MARGINALISED, AND WANT TO BE A PART OF HOW VILLAGE CHURCH LOVES OUR NEIGHBOURS IN BRISBANE AND BEYOND, THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU.
We’re called to love our neighbour, and in particular we’re called to love the vulnerable and marginalised. The Bible consistently talks about God’s love for the alien, the stranger, the poor and the orphan. We want to reflect the heart of the God we serve.
So if you’re passionate about working out how Village Church can best love our neighbours – in Brisbane and beyond – then become part of the social justice group. It’s just starting off, and we’re starting off small, but we’re excited about the possibilities we have to make a difference.
KidsLOVE KIDS? LOVE TEACHING THEM ABOUT JESUS? WANT TO BUILD CONNECTIONS WITH PARENTS? THIS IS YOUR TEAM.
You don’t have to have kids to be on this team. You just have to love them and want to see both them and their parents grow to be like Jesus.
There are any number of opportunities to be involved with kids at Village. From little Villagers on Sunday during church, the playgroup on Fridays, to helping prepare material and craft or supporting parents – there are lots of opportunities, many yet to be explored.
So if you’re keen on being a part of the kids ministry across Village Church, this is the team for you.
CommunityIF YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR LOVING AND CONNECTING WITH OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY AND PRACTICALLY SERVING PEOPLE FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS AND CULTURES, THEN THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU!
As Christians we are called to love our neighbours as ourselves. To do this, we need to know who our neighbours are and to love them and be invested in them, not just through programs, but through loving continued interaction. Our local community in Kelvin Grove is home to a large number of people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, with a mix of those who have moved here for study and those who have migrated permanently. If you’re passionate about connecting with and practically serving this community, then the Community Team is for you!
The Community Team will put ‘love your neighbour’ into practice. We will partner with the local community organisation The Exchange, and assist with programs such as English Conversation, the Kelvin Grove Community Garden and International Women’s Day events. The Community Team will also take the lead on coordinating the Christmas Day Community Breakfast and other events we host in Kelvin Grove. There is also lots of space to identify potential new serving projects and activities for involvement in our local neighbourhood, so bring your ideas!
Prayer & MissionIF YOU LOVE PRAYER, YOU LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE WORLD, AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO BRING IT BEFORE GOD, THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU.
“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Prayer is a key part of life at Village Church. We’re dependent upon God for everything and the Bible tells us that we have a Father who longs to hear from us and who promises to answer our prayers. So in every area of our personal lives and of our life here at Village Church, we want to be prayerful and we want to encourage others to regularly meet with God. We want to experience what it’s like to hand our anxieties over to Him and to experience His peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. A peace which guards our hearts and minds as his people (Philippians 4:6-7).
We’re looking for people who want to encourage others towards this end. People to organise bi-monthly (every second month) prayer meetings for the church, people to keep putting before us the work of God throughout the world and through those who we support oversea and our closer to home family working with students here at QUT.
Another aspect of this team is the opportunity to lead us in prayer on Sunday night and to keep reminding Village Church that we are dependent on God for all things.
Does that sound like you? Then join the prayer team.
MusicDO YOU LOVE MUSIC, LOVE TO SERVE OTHERS IN MUSIC, AND HONOUR GOD WITH YOUR GIFTS? JOIN THE MUSIC TEAM.
Music is an important part of Village Church. It’s one of the key ways we encourage one another on Sunday nights, remind each other of Gospel truths, and glorify God as we sing praises to Him.
We’re looking for talented and committed musicians to join the music team. At the moment the primary focus is on Sunday music, but we’re hoping to see other avenues in the future whereby we can use our musical gifts to glorify God.
So if you’d like to be a part of a great team of people, and help to continue to build the music ministry at Village Church, then join the music team.
