What should I expect at a CFC Service?
Every week the Christian Family Centre holds four services: Sunday 8:30am, 10:30am and 5:30pm and Friday 11am. Our services on a Sunday include a time of worship with contemporary music and our Fri 11am Chapel service includes more traditional music such as hymns etc. All include communication using biblical and relevant messages as well as 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 Sunday 8.30am service for coffee/tea and after our Sunday 10.30am, Sunday 5:30pm or Friday 11am services 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. As a member church of CRC Churches International (the denominational family we are part of) we adhere to CRC Duty of Care & Child Protection Guidelines which inform and guide our practice http://crcchurches.org/crc-duty-of-care-child-protection-guidelines/.

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.

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 & 5:30pm), 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.
