As of Monday, 7th of December 2020 COVID-19 recommendations from the State government has changed.

As of Monday, the 7th of December churches and places of worship will be allowed to increase their occupancy depending on a new 2 square meter rule. For Brookside, it means that we are now allowed up to 90 people in the main area of the church. This means that Sunday the 13th, the church will be open to all who wish to attend, and the invite system has been put on hold. And we will be allowed to sing again!

We are still encouraging the wear of masks and the use of sanitizer upon arrival.

We will also be introducing a self-check-in QR code similar to restaurants and cafes. If you are unsure of how to do this please ask the welcomers for help.

If you are still unable or do not feel safe to attend, don’t worry you can still find our sermons on our Facebook page or you can find the audio-only message under our sermon tab.

 If you have any questions or need more information please email

Welcome to Brookside

Welcome to Brookside. We are a Church that is made up of people just like you. We hope that through this website you discover that we are a group of people who are focused on loving Jesus and loving one another.

Please come and join us one Sunday morning as we would love to get to know you.


For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:16-17

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10b

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

John Wesley

Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.

Elisabeth Elliot

True faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God’s fidelity to His Promises.

Francis Chan

Current Preaching Series

Our 2020 Advent Series.

My wife, Barbara turned to me the other day and said Christmas will make everything better right?

Obviously, she meant that this year with all its Covid chaos and unprecedented times surely Christmas will bring back some sort of normality? Maybe the family will be able to visit, and carols will be sung again. Well maybe not.

But the good news is that Christmas has made everything better. Christmas, the time when we remember Jesus’ birth, that Emmanuel God with us. Christmas the time we remember the cries of the angels Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Christmas the times that wise men sought out the newborn king.

Christmas the time where we remember how much God loves us. Over the next few weeks, our sermon series will be focusing on preparing and reminding just how much God loves the world.
