Churches of Christ in Queensland
We are a church and community organisation encompassing a group of affiliated, mainstream Christian churches along with a range of care and community services and faith-related groups.
We have played an active part in the Queensland community for more than 130 years and have a significant presence with over 200 services in more than 100 communities. We also partner with Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania providing care services through Churches of Christ Care.
Our mission is to bring the light of Christ into communities in a loving, practical way that makes our clients’ lives a little easier. If you’re concerned that you may need to be a Christian in order to join us, don’t be. For us, Christianity means a culture of inclusiveness and compassion not discrimination and judgement. It’s thanks to people like you that we’re able to literally touch tens of thousands of lives each year.
We believe everyone is deserving of our help regardless of their religion, beliefs or background. The same goes for our team members. We don’t worry about tattoos, piercings or lifestyles so long as you have the qualifications and, above all, a big heart.
Our missional services include:
- Second half ministry
- Chaplaincy support in community and residential aged care facilities
- Men’s sheds
- Mission action partnerships, and
- Global mission projects.
These services are funded through a mix of government subsidies, grants, donations, fees and charges.
For those who are interested in our faith, our churches are generally quite informal and have no fixed order of service. We do not see a Church of Christ as a building. It is a connection between two or more people and can be held anywhere, where two or more are gathered in Jesus’ name. With over 45,000 Queenslanders involved in our churches, missional or care services, we are an integral part of the Queensland community.
