Central Church Newcastle | Newcastle Churches, Newcastle, NSW, Australia We acknowledge the reality that life doesn’t always turn out as planned. Sometimes personal decisions are made that take us to difficult circumstances, sometimes those circumstances are entirely beyond our control. The good news is that there is a place for you at Central Church. A place for you to find your people, get help for you and your family and move forward from where you are to where you want to be. Sunday Services in 2024 Our weekend services are created to be the best hour of your whole family's entire week! One hour to come together with a vibrant community, worship, and learn more about life, family, and of course, Jesus. We exist to introduce people to Jesus and to help them follow him. That’s what our weekend services are all about, for you and your family. We create welcoming and empowering church services for every person who is looking for somewhere to truly belong. Services full of fun, joy and life for the entire family! It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been walking with Jesus, or if you are simply curious to check out church, you are welcome here. Your whole family is welcome here. Your friends and their families are welcome here. We exist to introduce people to Jesus and help them to follow Him. You will probably hear us joke "no perfect people are allowed at Central Church Newcastle!” We are a church of authentic people where "It is Okay to not be Okay", but you don't have to stay that way. Come as you are, you are already welcome here. We don't have all of this figured out! We are genuine people, working life out - with Jesus as our source. We believe in taking care of the needs of our community. We feed those in need of food relief. Help people with the life change they need in real and practical ways so they can find freedom. And have so much vision for what we can be for our community in the future. Central Church is a simple, uncomplicated community that believes strongly in supporting our families, family time and making the health of your entire week our priority. Our focus is on supporting you in your walk with Jesus. Not by filling your life up with meetings and programs, but through discipleship. A Sunday service for 1 hour, deliberately focused on the practical tools you need for everyday life and the support you need to stay connected and growing.
