About us

Bunting from the waterhole

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 honour God by bringing lives into harmony with Him and one another through social action, fellowship, discipleship and evangelism. We achieve this through meeting together each week (Sunday, 10:00am), remaining in contact with each other through the week (in small groups), private prayer and study, and community involvement.


We meet regularly as a faith community and families to encourage one another, to learn, and to worship together. There are also many activities available during the week, where you can join in with friends, have a cuppa or sandwich or paint together. Find out more

We are a church that reflects the Alice Springs community; a high percentage of families with young children, with most adults falling into the thirty to forty age bracket.  The congregation love their worship and there is a big appreciation for contemporary worship.  Prayer ministry for each other is also highly valued.

Attenders are strongly committed to the vision of the Church and a major emphasis on community care and social justice issues. Most are involved in more than one Church activity each week. Attenders enjoy meeting new people at informal social activities and sharing the love of Jesus.

What is a church service like?

Painting of the cross

When you come to the Sunday morning celebration you will hear great music, including indigenous language songs, see interesting media, hear a short message, your children will be invited to join in fun activities with other children, and you will meet friendly people over refreshments. There is no requirement to wear anything different than when you visit a friend's house. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions or perhaps be prayed for, if you desire. You will not be singled out but you will be warmly welcomed.
