Dave and Ruth and a core group of around 40 people started The Lakes back in 2002. Since that time we have been greatly blessed by God and we now have over 400 people attending each Sunday across our three services.
Whilst The Lakes is an independent church, we have always enjoyed close connections with other churches. The Lakes is part of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches.
One of the things we really value is the diversity of people who come along to The Lakes every week. Many people come from the local area: like Berkeley Vale, Tuggerah, Bateau Bay; but we also have people coming from Jilliby, Yarramalong, Wyoming, Kincumber and beyond.
In spite of big differences like age, education and nationality, we enjoy a real sense of warmth, friendship and love as we hear God’s word together and help each other follow Jesus.
