Sunday Services

9:30AM

Our morning service is contemporary and family friendly. Children are very welcome. We run Children’s Ministry programs during the teaching time and for a short time after the service to allow parents space to chat. We enjoy morning tea together after the service.

Children

We run curriculum based activities for the following ages:

  • Seedlings (6 months to 3.5 years)
  • Saplings (3.5 to Prep)
  • Sunday School (Primary School age)

6:30PM

Our night service is popular with uni students, and young adults, though many others do attend. We enjoy each other’s company over supper after the service, and most weeks kick-on to another venue. 

Getting there

Our services are held at St Ignatius Primary School, Toowong.

Questions?

There is plenty of parking available. You can come up the driveway and park adjacent the hall. Alternately, you can park on Grove Street or Kensington Terrace.

There are three main elements to our service:

Worship:

We believe worship is a lifestyle of living in awe and wonder of who God is and what He has done for us in Jesus. It’s both an outward expression of praise and dependence on God and an inward posture of the heart that has been changed by His grace. Some of the ways we worship God are through song, prayer, hearing and applying God’s Word, and offering every aspect of our lives for His glory.

Teaching:

The gospel gives us relevant and redemptive truths to teach. The person and work of Jesus is a powerful message for all, so grace will be our constant theme. We will teach the Bible with confidence that God will continually renew us through His Word as we respond in faith and obedience.

Community:

We provide space in the middle and at the end of our services to enjoy connecting with one another. We also encourage deep community throughout the week. Our hope is that church can be a safe home where we can rejoice in God’s provision of a church family in which each of us can belong and be a blessing.

Yes. Our church hall is located a moderate walk from Toowong Train Station. Alternately, many buses stop on High St, which is a similar distance from the church building. Use the TransLink Journey Planner to find a service that suits you.

You can sit anywhere. There are no special seating arrangements.

Certainly not. We don’t even collect an offering. You’re our guest and we’ll do our best to treat you as such.

We try and keep our services under 90 minutes.

You don’t need to bring anything. If you have one, bring a bible and a notepad. If you don’t, we would like to give you a bible as a gift. Ask us at the info desk.

Yes it is. Please come park close to the hall entrance and ask one of our friendly welcomers to show you to the right entrance.

Service times and format have changed due to COVID-19.

Since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:19-25

How does Hebrews 10 and the call to continue meeting together work with the Government’s announcement that gatherings above 100 are not recommended? We want “be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution” (1 Peter 2:13) so we will not gather together this Sunday at St Ignatius, nor is it likely that we will for some time.

How will we gather? Community Groups

Our hope is that everyone who is a part of our church (or desires to be) will be a part of what we’re calling Community Groups. These groups will be a smaller group of people whom we will gather with, have community with, care for and pray with. On Sundays these groups will gather in person (or if necessary, virtually). As with any Sunday gathering, the preached Word will be central in these gatherings, we will sing together and there will be opportunity to pray, read the Bible, and share on a local level.

Now is a time when many will be thinking through deeper questions – we would love anyone to join us. Most regulars will hear from a Community Group leader by Saturday morning, but it’s likely we may miss some or others may want to join. You can do so by registering here.

With love and grace,

Pete (on behalf of the church elders and the many other amazing people who are helping us)
