Our Unique Identity
The Christian Family Centre Churches have been raised up by God to express our beliefs and ministry with a set of core values and a purposeful ministry strategy that ﬁts squarely within the mainstream of historic Christian belief and practice; and which we believe is appealing and relevant to 21st Century culture and its various social needs.
Our Biblical Foundation
As with other churches, we accept and rely on the Bible as God’s Word, and we express normally accepted Biblically-based Christian beliefs, values, ethics and behaviour; and hold an attitude of friendship and cooperation with other Christian denominations.
Our Christ-Centred Worldview
Our view of the Christian life is that it should be centred around a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and therefore will be loving, joyful, supportive and productive in all of its expressions. We help people rest in the ﬁnished work of Christ’s death on the Cross and His resurrection on their behalf; and in the reality of Christ in us through the person of the Holy Spirit.
We place our trust in the doing and dying of Christ on our behalf and depend on Christ’s living presence to initially save us and to continually sustain us in our Christian walk.
Our Passion For All People
We affirm that Jesus Christ can transform all people by His love and grace; and that He will always enrich people’s lives, enabling them to fully develop their God given potential and to live with meaning, purpose and dignity. We are a church for all people.
What should I expect at a Sunday Service?
Every week the Christian Family Centre holds three services. Each one includes a time of worship with contemporary music, communication using biblical and relevant messages as well as many different exciting and creative elements. As our guest, our services are designed with you in mind - so you can engage with what's happening in a relaxed and respectful environment.
When you visit the Christian Family Centre, come and speak to any of our friendly team at the Info Desk, located in our Foyer. Our team will help you locate different areas across our venue (I.e.kids and youth programs, community hall for meals etc), answer any queries you might have, and will even grab you a free coffee after the service!
Feel free to stay on after our 8.30am or 6pm service for coffee/tea and after our 10.30am service for a delicious, reasonably priced meal. Our CFC Cafe is also open during these times if you would like to purchase barrista-made coffee and various drinks.
Children & Young People
We believe children and young people are incredibly valuable and that they have a unique part to play in the life of our church family. Because of this, we intentionally provide caring, fun and safe environments for kids & youth to belong & build lasting friendships, explore & experience God's love & thrive in their unique gifts & purpose. All our CFC Kids & CFC Youth Team Members undergo screening & ongoing training as required by our CFC C.A.R.E Policy.
CFC Kids runs each Sunday alongside our 10:30am service with age specific programs that cater for Toddlers (18m-up to 3ys); Preschoolers (3-4 yrs) & Primary School kids (5-10yrs). CFC Kids BREAKOUT happens on Friday afternoons, 1x month from 4:30-6pm. BREAKOUT is for all children Reception to Year 5. For more info find us on Facebook @cfcseatonkids

We love welcoming first time families. During our Early Service (8:30-9:30am) parents of preschool children (under 5’s) can supervise their children at play on our Indoor Preschool Playground, while watching the service in our Community Hall. At all services (8:30am, 10:30am & 6pm), our Parenting Room is also available for use. Parents/Carers can supervise their baby/toddler while watching the service, or make use of baby change facilities etc. We also provide a Mums'N'Bubs room for mums who would like privacy & a quiet space for feeding or settling their baby for sleep while watching our services.
