Mission Partners

The mission of Lakeshore Church is Living for Jesus, by Making, Maturing and Mobilising Disciples of Jesus, for his Glory.

Lakeshore Church partners with gospel workers and organisations who take this mission beyond our church — locally, nationally and internationally. We support these partners in various ways, including financial support, prayer, personal encouragement and by getting directly involved.
