Lutherans believe that God loves everyone
and that his love comes to life through Jesus
Through Jesus, love comes to life
long before we know it or feel it
Through Jesus, God's love comes to life
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.
