Light shining in new location
Saturday, 16th May, 2015
Light to Nations Church has moved to a new location and will be holding their first service on Sunday.
Light to Nations started in March 2012, and they conducted their services at a room in Robinson College, every Sunday evening at 5.30pm.
Pastor Wayne Lee said it was a wonderful room and the staff were all very welcoming.
“Unfortunately, we found this location to be a bit out of the way and difficult for some people,” he said.
“Pastor David Trinder and the oversight team at Liberty Church invited us to use their building for our church services on Sunday evenings.
“We accepted their offer and are excited to be moving to Liberty House.
“The facilities are excellent; the location is central and the access is easy.”
Pastor Lee said they had a band that leads the singing.
“Our messages are inspiring, challenging and life changing,” he said.
“We have a children’s program called ‘Little Lights’ for young children during the preaching.
“On May 29, we will also be starting a Friday night youth group for children in Years 7 to 12 called ‘Youth Alight’.”
Pastor Lee has held credentials for 29 years and has travelled to Papua New Guinea, India, Nepal, Cameroon, South Africa and Kenya preaching in pastors’ conferences, youth conferences, small and remote villages, and cities and towns.
“My first short-term mission trip was to Papua New Guinea in 1987,” he said.
“In September this year, we are looking at taking a team to Zambia.
“We normally take musical instruments and do items at most meetings.”
Pastor Lee’s father, Doug Lee, was a pastor and had built the CRC church in Thomas Street.
“About five years ago, the hierarchy of the CRC expressed to me, it would be better for me to leave as they had plans I didn’t agree with,” he said.
“My family then attended Liberty Church for two years, before starting Light to Nations Church in 2012.”
Pastor Lee said everyone was welcome to attend the services on Sunday evenings.
“We have a modern approach in today’s culture,” he said.
“A good percentage of young people attend the services.
“We don’t make people do anything they don’t want; people are welcome to sit and observe.”
The services will be held at Liberty House, 48 Oxide Street from 5.30pm on Sunday.
