Clusters are the smallest gathering of believers, as few as two and up to a dozen. They are the life blood of the church and are focused on living out the gospel.
If you are not sure what the gospel is, it’s key to understanding what it means to be a Christian. We have got a simple video that explains what the gospel is, you can access this here.
Jesus said there are three things that Christians are to do in living out the gospel.
Prayer– Growing each believers love of God, living in the love of the Father, through Jesus under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, so that love of God and love of others grows.
Discipleship– Discovering and developing the unique character, competency and calling as disciples of Jesus, encouraging others in their relationship with Jesus to do the same.
Evangelism– Loving those around us by communicating and demonstrating in words and actions Jesus gospel.
Below is a list of our clusters. If you are not in a cluster, we would love to have you join one. Even if you wouldn’t call yourself a Christian, clusters are a great place to explore with others who Jesus is. Have a look at the list below and feel free to contact one of our cluster leaders or Julie Rock on 0420 930 818 about coming along to one of our groups.
