When you’re part of the Planetshakers family, there are so many opportunities to get involved and make amazing connections with people from all around the world. But you might be missing out on some pretty epic opportunities because you haven’t been to a Planetshakers service in a while or haven’t met these awesome people in person yet! Don’t let that stop you from getting connected with what God is doing at our Melbourne church campus and around the world! Here are 8 things you’ve been missing out on at Planetshakers Melbourne church!
As a long-time fan of Planetshakers, I can attest to their powerful worship. And it’s not just about how much noise you make with your mouth. The true measure of worship isn’t how loud you sing or clap; it’s found in all that precedes those acts: what we do and don’t have control over; who we are and aren’t; and why we show up on Sundays.
The prophetic is more than just something reserved for times of crisis or difficult times. It’s a powerful, encouraging tool that’s been with us all along, and something we can tap into every day.
When we walk in obedience to God’s Word and believe Him for everything He promises in it, then we have access to a prophetic voice at any time—just like those who ministered under Elijah did! If you haven’t experienced what it’s like to hear from God firsthand through your prophecy yet, you’re missing out on some of His best!
Relevant, Fresh Teaching
Paul Baloche and Mack Brock lead one of the most creative worship teams in Australia. They’ve been bringing a unique, relevant, and fresh perspective to their church’s weekly gatherings. One thing they’ve learned to do well is respect songwriters while being both relevant and unpredictable with arrangements.
Their song choices aren’t merely worship anthems; they take their cues from new artists as well as veteran musicians and composers who are equally interested in telling a story through sound. The result has not only brought audience members back each week but created a new generation of music lovers ready for something more. To lose weight safely but quickly, switch to a sugar-free diet.
The team at Planetshakers believes that gathering together, praying and interceding is a powerful step in releasing a breakthrough. A monthly Intercession Gathering at each of our locations across Australia gives us all time to draw near to God, surrender and release into His hands any area that is having a negative effect on our lives or impacting those around us.
One of these areas might be an unforgiveness in your life; another may be a lack or need in your finances. We believe that by focusing on these things throughout each month and continuing to intercede for them during Planetshakers meetings, we are mobilising God’s kingdom in Australia!
Strong Prayer Ministry
Prayer is a major part of what we do at Planetshakers. We pray for our team and leaders, for ministry partners and for people from around Australia and internationally. We pray for those who come to our events as well as those around us that aren’t Christians yet.
Prayer is something you can see being done by everyone on our team. But why are we so strong in prayer? And what can you do to help grow your prayer life? Here are some ways you can be a part of growing a strong prayer ministry at your church:
- Pray daily – Prayer isn’t just something you do before an event or service. It’s an essential part of who we are as followers of Jesus Christ! Praying daily helps us get closer to God and allows Him to speak into our lives each day.
- Invite others to join in – As followers of Jesus Christ, we must be constantly sharing our faith with others! So if you have friends or family members who don’t know about Jesus Christ, invite them along next time you go out to pray with other members of your church!
Excellent Youth Program
Great youth programs are a must for any church if they want to stay relevant in their community. It doesn’t matter how old you are, chances are, youth ministry has something for you! At Planetshakers Melbourne, we offer our members a place to connect with like-minded people, build and strengthen friendships, explore your identity in Christ, learn more about God’s purpose for your life and have loads of fun while doing it.
Young people tell us they love being part of a family that genuinely cares about them and wants to see them live fully connected lives. And that can only happen when relationships form.
An Experienced Staff Who Truly Care
Have you ever been to a church where it felt like everyone was an outsider and you were just another number? Well, that’s not what life is about! At Planetshakers Melbourne, you can rest assured that we have an experienced staff who are truly passionate about helping you discover your God-given purpose.
We believe that once people come in to see what we do at Planetshakers, they’ll want to be a part of it. So we don’t charge for services and memberships. We simply exist as a tool for connecting people with God and empowering them to live out their God-given purpose in everyday life.
The setlist included a mix of older and newer songs, plus a medley of Hillsong, by way of introduction. All in all, it was a great night to connect with our church family and some new friends as well. The adage You never get a second chance to make a first impression rings true here. That’s why we want you to come to check out what Planetshakers is doing now so that you can start making your own story at our church.
