Lakeside is an independent evangelical church committed to teaching and living out the Bible and the good news about Jesus. We are affiliated with like-minded churches in the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Church (FIEC).

The Church has people living throughout the ACT in places such as Griffith, Manuka, Kingston, Red Hill, Narrabundah, Canberra City, Queanbeyan and even in Gungahlin and Belconnen.

Lakeside people are spread across the age groups with a large group in their 30s. We have a mix of singles and married. During Church we run a Bible Kids program. We have people from many different ethnic groups including Chinese, Korean, Indian, Indonesian, Singaporean, Anglos etc. 

If you come to Lakeside, we hope that you will find that the Bible is clearly and faithfully taught and followed. We hope that you will be encouraged to grow in your discipleship, following and understanding of Jesus. It is also a good place for forming relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ who can spur you on and encourage you in life and godliness.

Our recent history is that in 2018 we decided to call Andrew to become the pastor and we met as a group of 30 people. Since then by God’s kindness we have grown significantly in numbers. We have grown as a Church with clear theology reflecting that of the Reformation – by grace alone, by Christ alone, by the Scripture alone, by faith alone, to the glory of God alone.

Our church is called Lakeside not simply because we are broadly speaking near Lake Burley Griffin but because Jesus taught his disciples by the lake side and we wish to have the same experience as we are taught by Jesus through his word today.

We hope you can come and visit in person.
