We believe that Jesus is God’s Son who came to this earth to die for us so that we can live free, forgiven and with purpose.

We believe that the same power of God that raised Jesus from the dead is alive and available to us all today.

We believe that all who call out to Jesus as Lord and Saviour, regardless of their background, will be saved and our church exists to create a space for that to happen.

We believe that as a church, our core values can be summed up in just four simple words. Devoted, Connected, Empowered and Fruitful.

We believe that we aren’t called to live by a set of rules, but in a relationship with Jesus built on devotion.

We believe that there is great power in the name of Jesus. And as believers we can be empowered in the authority and purpose of God

We believe that through our relationship with Jesus, we can be fruitful in all areas of our lives – relationships, school, family, business – and in how we serve God.

We believe that we are connected together through our faith in Jesus, no matter our background or circumstances

Connect Groups

Faith women are called by God to have a positive impact on their family, friends, community and the world. Faith Women are women of influence and significance. We meet fortnightly and hold special events throughout the year with guest speakers that inspire and empower. Our aim is to provide a Women’s Ministry that is full of fun, connection, teaching and laughter, in order to equip women in their everyday life.

Women of Faith

The Faith Men’s ministry meets three times a year for breakfast, dinner or an adventure. The program is for men of all ages – young, married, single, dads and grandfathers. We love this scripture ‘As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another – Proverbs 27:17 and keep it at the core of our men’s ministry. The purpose of the ministry is to spend time together and learn about God’s plan and purpose.

Men of Faith

The Creative Team at Faith is made up of passionate and talented musicians, singers, songwriters, dancers, actors, sound technicians, lighting and video producers. We all come together to use our talents to glorify God.


We are passionate about God, church and creating great friendships. We meet regularly for lunch and other planned outings. It’s a place where seniors can come together, have fun and as well as learn a little more about God.


Uni can be a challenging time and we want to provide you all the support you need to succeed. We have a lot of fun – we meet at fortnightly connect groups and yearly spring break camp. Throughout the year we hold university outreach programs and regular dinners, brunches and sporting tournaments.

Faith Uni Students

We have a hold-nothing back passion for God. We want to trail blaze a path with life-defining moments. We’re all about friends, good coffee, weekend adventures and live music. And we bring all of these together in our monthly Salt + Light Young Adult meeting and yearly Young Adults retreat. If you’re between 18 – 35 years old, we’d love for you to join us.

Young Adults

We love this scripture at Faith Kids, ‘Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it’  – Proverbs 22:6. Our aim is to create foundations of Faith and teach children about God through games, singing and dancing. It’s also a great way for children to make friends! Our Faith Kids program runs during every Sunday service at Faith.

Faith Kids

Our aim is to create healthy life foundations and as well as provide a place where parents can form great friendships in all the craziness of having pre-school aged kids! We have fun and learn through games, singing and dancing. It’s also a great way for children to make friends. Our playground runs on a variety of days and times.


Our goal is to help people break out of the poverty cycle and spread the word about Jesus. We do this by funding aid, development and ministry work. Every year, we aim to give $750,000 to our cause.  To date, we’ve given over $6 million to people in need globally!
