Life at Eastern
Share the journey. Value the community.
Your experience on campus can be an opportunity to discover God’s calling and direction, explore your personal transformation and build relationships that last.
At Eastern, we genuinely aspire to be ‘two colleges, one community’. Sharing a campus with Melbourne School of Theology (MST) adds depth and colour to campus life. Taking time to eat together, grab an excellent coffee, and worship God in chapel allows for fun, balance and emotional, physical and spiritual nourishment.
At Eastern & MST we prioritise fellowship as one community. Our weekly combined chapel is a time of united worship, prayer, testimony sharing and quality teaching and preaching.
Students have many opportunities to serve and practice leadership within the College particularly through the Student Leadership Team, comprising Eastern and MST student volunteers who manage student-led events, mission fundraisers, worship nights and more.
These student-led initiatives are supported by the executive leadership. Students have opportunity to participate in Academic Governance through the appointment of a student to the Academic Board.
Interest groups, or ‘Collectives’ bond over a common interest allowing students and faculty to spend time together doing something they enjoy. Collectives run on and off campus, during various times of the week.
Prayer is vital at Eastern as we commit each and every aspect of our operations and life to the Lord. We pray for our students each day and a group of faithful people meet monthly to pray for the College. Find out more about the Prayer Fellowship here.
