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 very appealing and relevant to late 20th Century/early 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.
What should I expect at a Sunday Service?
Every week the Christian Family Centre holds three services. Each service includes a time of worship with contemporary music, communication using biblical and relevant messages as well as many different creative and exciting elements.
When you visit the Christian Family Centre, come and speak to any of the friendly team members at the ‘Guest Lounge’. Here you can talk to real people over a coffee or lunch. The ‘Guest Lounge’ is designed for people who are new to the church, offering a place where you can find out more. The ‘Guest Lounge’ is located in the Community Hall, behind the foyer.
Feel free to stay after every 8.30am service for coffee and after 10.30am service for a cooked lunch. All meals are reasonably priced and the cafe offers real coffee, drinks, cakes and more!
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.

We love welcoming first time families.
