FROM Sunday, the All Nations Church of Woolgoolga will take on the name Lifehouse Church.
The church is uniting with Coffs Harbour's Lifehouse Church as one church with two locations.
The decision to merge was made in conjunction with senior pastors and leadership teams at both existing churches.
The merger will see pastors Tim and Kerith Hagenaar move into local pastor roles at the Woolgoolga location.
Both pastors have served as children's pastors at Lifehouse Church for the past 12 years and are well-positioned to support local families.
Current All Nations Church pastor Peter Ainsworth will stay on the pastoral team of Lifehouse Church in Coffs Harbour and Woolgoolga in a community engagement and chaplaincy role.
The church's community cafe, playgroup and care shop will all continue to operate.
All are welcome at the first Woolgoolga Lifehouse service and official handing of the baton to Tim and Kerith on August 2 at 9.30am. For more information, phone 6654 1788.
