Chelsea Community Church of Christ is a small church with a big heart. With around 28 regular Sunday members, they are passionate about the Outreach Programs that they provide to the surrounding community. Open seven days a week, we are a Community of Hope and Compassion in our neighbourhood, hosting around 300 persons each week, showing the love of Jesus 24/7.
Those struggling in the surrounding neighbourhood can find a variety of free or low cost programs, and welcome, respect, and acceptance no matter their struggles. We see the face of God in each and every person in the neighbourhood.
Chelsea Community church runs a number of fee-paying programs including the Men’s Shed, Ladies’ Shed, Music with Mummies, Karate, Kumon, AA, Friday Afternoon games, gentle exercises for older persons, and Fit Mums ‘n Bumps. These programs contribute to the neighbourhood and support Chelsea Community church’s other free events and programs.
Free programs include a weekly Wednesday breakfast with a 3 course restaurant style setting, food pantry including toiletries and blankets, weekly showers for those doing it tough, and Kidzone Holiday program for children aged 5-10 yrs.
Many join the community for the weekly prayer meeting and Bible studies, including members of other local churches as together we work to spread the Good News of Jesus.
Chelsea Community church gives anyone the opportunity to participate in their worship services in line with their gifting and passion for God. Twice a month we are joined by the Country Gospellaires, a group of five who get the chapel rocking to old time hymn favourites with a country feel.
As soon as you come in the door you feel the presence of God in the busy but joyful atmosphere of Chelsea Community church. Feel invited to come visit for a Wednesday breakfast or a Sunday service cuppa and chat afterwards.
