Plan a Visit

Due to COVID-19 our physical services are limited to 10 people, but you are most welcome to connect with us online for Church right here each Saturday at 10am! 

Our Physical Church Services are currently limited in attendance due to COVID-19 and the health government restrictions currently active in Victoria.


Make A Booking:

You can currently make a booking for online church by contacting us via this email: , or by contacting us via this phone number: 0418 402 027. 

How things changed...

As COVID-19 has brought along with it many government restrictions and precautions we have to follow, there are a few things that changed since the last time you've been at church, or even if you're visiting for the first time there are still some things you might need to be aware of. ​

Before arriving at church you'll need to make a booking to make sure that there's room for you to attend as there are currently government limitations in metropolitan Melbourne with how many people are allowed to attend. 

When you walk in you will need to write down your name on a attendance sheet along with some details like your phone number and the time you arrived. This is required for us to do by law for contact tracing purposes. 

You'll need to wear a mask all the time when in the building in accordance to the rules that apply for metropolitan Melbourne. 

You'll be able to find Hand Sanitiser when you first walk through the main entrance of the building. 

During the Sabbath School/Bible Study we won't be able to separate for smaller classes, but you'll be able to enjoy the interactive Bible Study in a slightly larger group! 

We hope you'll find the physical church experience enjoyable after months of lockdown and not being able to attend!

New to Lakeside? 

Thank you for considering joining us one of these upcoming Sabbaths. You are very welcome to join us or just come for a visit. 

When you arrive, you are welcome to park your car on our car park, or when the car park is full a sign will be put up (usually around 11am) and you would be able to park alongside Shearwater Drive, which is the road that is facing the front of our Church. 

When you walk through the front entrance you will not feel awkward because you will be made welcome by our members and shown directions. 

When you walk through the lobby towards the main auditorium the toilets will be on the left if you need to go at any time during the morning. 

Arriving at 10 - Bible Study

Arriving at 11 - Main Service

When you enter the main auditorium you are welcome to sit down anywhere you desire. You will be welcomed and then you will be able to partake in the BIble Study. 

At the moment we will not be able to split into smaller Bible classes due to COVID-19, but you'll still be able to enjoy an interactive Bible Study in a slightly larger group! 


We will have an open-minded discussion. Each Saturday we look at a particular topic. You are welcome to participate or just listen along. The discussion usually opens and closes with a prayer.

When the discussion is finished around 10:45 you are welcome to hang around your newly created friends while you wait for the main service and continue maintaining social distancing. 

When you enter the main auditorium our volunteers will guide you some spare seats remaining in the venue and they will try their best to find seats right next to each other so your family isn't separated. You are also welcome to sit down anywhere you desire. 

Various speakers will deliver some announcements and the service will begin. Feel assured that you will defiantly be welcomed by our members. The service consists of songs, various other items and a pastors message to the congregation.

After the service is over you are welcome to hang around to bond with your newly created friends while maintaining social distancing and also ask questions if you have any. 

We are absolutely sure that you'll be welcome.

What to Wear?

You can come as you are! There is no particular dress code for our service, other than a face mask (in accordance to government regulations).

As long as you are comfortable we are happy! 

Linking back to 'what this means for you'...

Most importantly, you're always welcome. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of the Lakeside family. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. Our Church is filled with completely imperfect people, so no matter who you are, we accept you the way you are.

You matter to God, You matter to Us.

This is the general structure of our Services...

Seventh-day Adventist Church


Welcome to the Lakeside Community Seventh-day Adventist Church (Pakenham Seventh-day Adventist Church). We are a Christian Congregation that is very different from most traditional Christians. The most particular thing is that we meet on the 7th Day (Saturday) just as it teaches us in the Bible. We believe that Jesus came to the earth, died on the cross so we could have eternal life, not because of how well we lived but by our faith.
