A Jesus-Following, Christian Community
in Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia

Welcome to Jesus’ Church!

We're all about Jesus - the God who is Love, and who gave up everything… so that we can love God, love others, and be made new from our own brokenness.

 

Get Directions for Sunday

Want to know more about Jesus? Got questions about God? Curious about the Bible or Christianity? Want to explore purpose and meaning in life? Are you looking for a Jesus-focused church in Hawthorn?

"Church" is just an ancient name for a group of people who are interested in connecting with Jesus and the answers He has for our questions, fears and desires about God, life and everything. We gather in His name, and are sent out to be part of the good He is bringing to the world.

80-100 friendly people of all ages and walks of life

Inspiring music to sing and connect with God through

Interesting speakers who will help you understand God through the Bible

Space for prayer and reflection, and to take action to address injustice

Fair-trade tea & coffee and frequently food!
