Life together in Christ

We are a growing Christian church, a vibrant community including families, children, and young adults, singles, couples, seniors. We see Jesus as the centre of our thoughtful Christian faith, and we work together to express God's love to one another and in our care of others. We warmly welcome visitors.

Your local international church

Located at the city / river / western end of Hawthorn, immediately beside Hawthorn West Primary School, we serve our local community in Hawthorn, Richmond and surrounding areas. Our congregations include members from many countries and language backgrounds, and we value our overseas mission partnerships. 

Our Sunday gatherings

We meet on Sundays, at 8:30am and 10:00am, to build one another up to maturity in Christ. We sing God’s praises, most of all for his grace to us in Christ. We bring our concerns to God in prayer, knowing His love for the world. We hear and reflect on God’s Word, and pray together for His Spirit to transform our lives by that powerful Word. Each Sunday we get to know one another over morning tea together, and sometimes lunch, and warmly invite visitors to share in this.

  • Please note that on Sunday 5th June and Sunday 3rd July a Combined Service at 10am means that there will be no 8:30am service on these Sundays. Lunch will be served on these two Sundays.
  • Current preaching series: May-June, on King Solomon.   July-August, on the Holy Spirit.

Weekday mornings, for young families

On weekday mornings we conduct programmes for young children and their parents/carers. "Mainly Music" runs on Monday and Thursday mornings, and our "Rostered Playgroup" runs on Wednesday mornings. See details under the "FAMILIES" tab above.
