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

We have a 30 year+ partnership with some churches in Chennai, India – supporting them financially, with prayer and training, and visiting when we can, hoping to share what we have learnt about following Jesus. In return we learn from our Indian brothers and sisters; they have helped us gain insight into life and faith in a pluralistic culture that is deeply resistant to the claims of Christianity, taught us much about living with less, trusting in God, and provided us with experiences of life and God’s love and mercy we couldn’t find anywhere else. Oh and let’s not forget the epic food!

We have invested in this relationship and increased the level of connection between our churches through several visits. The photos below are from a small trip in 2012; larger groups visited in 2016 and 2018.
