Melbourne Christian Fellowship was established as a local church during the 1970s, and now has a large congregation that meets in the Samford Valley, on Brisbane’s north-west. We are a vibrant fellowship of individuals and families, who live, work and relate in our local communities and gather together every Sunday for our communion service.
As a local church, we offer many programmes that can assist all age groups in their spiritual development and in building lasting friendships. We regularly meet to take part in these programmes, which include communion services, Bible studies, baptisms and meetings for children, teenagers, youth, men, women and seniors.
We also enjoy opportunities to meet in our homes to pray, share about our Christian lives and study the Bible together. Throughout the year we host Regional Bible Seminars where various churches from around Australia gather to share together in Bible teaching.
Weddings are an exciting time of celebration for our church because of the richness of friendship and family life that is possible through the Christian gospel. We use the ‘Service of Blessing’ wedding format that allows friends and family members to bless the couple, who are being married, toward their Christian vows.
We enjoy true friendship across all ages and endeavour to give dignity to every person. We care for one another in practical ways, particularly in times of stress or need. We value family life and know that the Christian gospel is able to establish and strengthen family relationships when we commit ourselves to love God and value Him above all else in our lives.
We aim to support, encourage and care for everyone with whom we come in contact. Our simple motivation is the love that God places in our hearts, which we can share with others. Our church is cared for by a group of leaders who facilitate various aspects of our church programme. These areas include teaching, music, hospitality, care of special needs, building maintenance and general administration.
Throughout the year, we present special musical performances to express the word of God we're hearing. One such production was The Jerusalem Passion, which involved Christians from many churches throughout the city.
The events in our programme often include times of refreshing hospitality and picnics in the church grounds. To read more about our events, visit the calendar page.
As a local church, Melbourne Christian Fellowship maintains strong and vital relationships with many other Australian churches. We also maintain fellowship with international churches in Singapore, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and the United States of America.
We believe that God is bringing together His church, the body of Christ, by joining Christian believers together in fellowship. We know that God is working to restore our lives – as individuals, families and congregations.
We warmly invite and welcome you to be part of our church life.
