A place to thrive and grow

Connecting God's Word, Spirit & Community in the world we live

  • We exist to know & enjoy God for all eternity. The natural outworking of this is to invite others into this amazing experience of God
  • We do this in relationship with God's Word, His Spirit, His Community and the world we live
  • At the heart of this is a real capacity for healthy relationships

This vision assumes intentional, well formed, reproducing followers of Jesus, sharing who they are with others. It takes seriously the mandate to Make, Mature and Multiply disciples on mission.

Telopea Christian Centre emphasises an environment we believe will help us become all that God has purposed for us.

At our church you will find 4 distinct environments in which to engage an grow:

LIFE DEVOTED: Creating security where people can explore coming to know God better

LIFE SHARED: Practicing authenticity so we can enjoy God and each other

LIFE GATHERED: Celebrating living out the heart of a God of generosity together

LIFE EXPRESSED: Going on an adventure revealing God in the worlds we inhabit

Throughout the week we have a number of ways you can be connected with the life of our community.
