as we grow together in his grace
Whoever you are, whatever your story
you're welcome here with us
... following Jesus,
where love comes to life
We're part of a bigger church family, the Lutheran Church of Australia. Together we want to be a place where love comes to life. We believe that God's love is for everyone, everywhere, and we want you to see how his love comes to life in us – and in you.
