We come from all over Melbourne, but the majority live in the inner north. Together, we’re seeking to grow in Christian maturity, love and care for each other, serve Christ in our lives, welcome newcomers, love and share Christ with our communities and in our workplaces, and raise up workers for God’s great harvest field.
