I hope this email finds you well and prospering during these difficult times.
Let’s never forget there is nothing too difficult for our God. Jesus has led us this far and He will lead us on.
Please understand that those who consider themselves to be a part of our Enjoy Family and are planted in “Our Father’s House” are our primary concern at this time. Your health, both physically and spiritually is foremost in our thinking. So, through this period, we’ll be praying continuously for you and your families as well as the wider Enjoy Church family and looking to connect with you in many different ways.
I’d like to take a moment to reiterate what I asked of every Enjoyer during last Sunday’s message, and that is that you commit to connecting with us as much as we’re committing to connect with you. For any relationship to be of value and of benefit to those who share it, it must be two way and we need to commit to leaning into each other during this difficult period. Even though these ways of connecting will look different moving forward for a season.
Following our Prime Ministers announcement today of no gatherings of 100 people and over, from this weekend, Enjoy Church will not be physically meeting in our locations. Rather we will host three Enjoy Church online services this Sunday; 9:30am, 11:30am and 5pm (AEST) which you can access through our website and via Facebook. Especially for Kidmania aged kids, following each online service, there will be a special 15min Kidmania presentation.
We are excited about creating a series of online events beyond Sunday services so we can continue to connect and engage with you throughout the week. These online events will run for 30mins on weeknights and will include Prayer Meeting, Friendship Group, Team Session, Men’s/Women’s Ministry, Worship etc. In addition to these, for all our Youth, we are hosting Empire online from this Friday night. Stay tuned for more information.
For the latest updates, initiatives and ways to connect, giving options and prayer requests, please visit our website or download our Enjoy Church App. Further to this we’d encourage you to follow Enjoy Church and your pastors on social media to be encouraged, engaged and connected.
Enjoyers! We love you, we’re proud of you and standing with you. Please let us know what you need and be looking out for one another. If you’re aware of people who need practical or spiritual care or encouragement, please let us know.
Love and Blessings,
Shane & Georgie Baxter

We hope this email finds you and your family well and enjoying the goodness of God.
We’re looking forward to a great day in Church this Sunday and hearing from our Senior Pastor, Ps Shane Baxter who will be speaking live from West into our Enjoy Church locations.
This week we’ve seen so much fear and panic across the globe and I’m sure you, like me, are looking forward to hearing the life-giving, faith filled word of God through Ps Shane’s message this Sunday. If you want God’s best for your life, don’t give any room to fear but rather position yourself in faith and in the Fathers House this weekend, that together we may lay hold of Gods peace, His joy and the contentment that comes from knowing Him.
In our approach to services, we continue to take the necessary & appropriate steps to keep Enjoyers safe and healthy by providing hand sanitizer at our services and encouraging everyone towards healthy personal hygiene, seeking medical advice and taking time to recover at home if you feel unwell. Let’s be wise and follow any medical instructions but let’s also, be people of faith, believing for the best!
Make sure you’re in church this Sunday, to hear the changes to our service format for the next month or so as we continue to monitor the situation.
We love you, are praying for you & look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
Executive Pastor | Enjoy Church
