Plan a visit
Whether you have grown up in a church or haven't ever checked one out, we understand that just turning up one day might be daunting.
We hope this page might help a little, and we're happy to chat more beforehand if you can send us a message or email.
We're a multicultural community including a significant ministry amongst Chinese-speaking people. See below for more info on each of our services and kids programs.
We have two services each Sunday at 180 Maitland Rd, Islington. One service is in English and the second in Chinese - Mandarin and Cantonese.
There's ample parking, welcoming people, air-conditioned facilities and great coffee at morning tea afterwards!
9:30am English Service
Our time together begins with a welcome from the front & singing together (or listening if you'd rather not sing). After that we normally have a special family spot teaching the kids before they head out for kids programs. Then someone will pray from the front, we'll read the Bible and hear a 25-30min message explaining the Bible and helping us to think about its meaning today. We normally finish with a song and a collection is taken for our regulars who financially support the ministry of the church.
