We are an Anglican Church on the Central Coast, with the specific mission to serve the communities of Bateau Bay, Tumbi Umbi, Killarney Vale, Chittaway, Berkeley Vale and Glenning Valley. We are a church community who are trying to follow Jesus Christ in everything we do, whether at home, work, school or anywhere else. He changes our lives as we engage with the Sacraments, read the bible, talk to him in prayer and listen as he speaks to us in many ways. God’s Spirit lives in us and helps us achieve things we previously thought impossible. Even though we still have heaps of tough stuff in our lives, we are so grateful that God is with us all the time.
We believe following Jesus will change your life.
We have a range of Sunday service styles and mid-week activities so that there is something for everyone, whatever your age or background. Our aim is to encourage people to faith in Jesus Christ and we trust that you will find there is a place for you here as you read more about our church.
Come and try Messy Church.
Please come and join us as soon as you can and help us make a difference in our community. You are welcome any time!
