We would like to welcome you to come along the journey with us; A place where you can connect with a family of people and have a sense of belonging. We are a people of faith committed to loving God and others in creative and tangible ways. We achieve this through meeting together each week (Sunday, 10:00am), remaining in contact with each other through the week (in small group activities), private prayer and study, and community involvement.

A worshipping community…

We meet regularly as a faith community to encourage one another, to learn, and to worship together. We also have activities for all ages including Children's playgroup, Young Adults Group, English Conversation Classes, Womens craft groups, Bible Study and more. Find out more

…engaged in our community

Our community involvement includes a range of activities that care for people and work for justice such as:

  • Project Hope which exists to bring hope to the people of Greater Dandenong by delivering services and practical assistance and by creating spaces where people can contribute and belong to community.
  • Building Bridges, a ten week day recovery programme for those whose alcohol and other drug use is causing problems for them or those they love. Program hours are designed to work around school hours for those who have caring responsibilities for children. 
  • Thrift Shop where a team of volunteers serve the community by providing affordable goods, which in turn helps to fund the community services.
