Bearers of Christ's Love

Who we are

We exist to make Jesus known and loved in the Illawarra, Macarthur, Southern Highlands and  Shoalhaven.

In discovering the saving love of God, we have a passion for sharing that love.
Our prayer and worship unites us with Jesus and with each other, empowering us to be bearers of Christ’s love.
